How to Use Essay Examples for Composing a Perfect Paper
Writing a paper can be difficult for a first-time writer or anyone with little experience. It is hard to decide on a topic and know how to put facts and details together to form a cohesive paper. One way to go about it is by using essay examples. Essay examples will have several things in common that can contribute to the skeleton of your paper. Even though your topic will be different, the concept behind the writing of all papers is generally the same. All you have to do is compare, analyze, find similarities, and copy the structure.
- The first thing that you will notice about a general essay is that it has three main parts: an introduction, the body, and a conclusion. You will notice that the first paragraph is the introduction, the last paragraph is the conclusion, and any paragraphs in the middle compose the body. The introduction serves the purpose of introducing your topic and the ideas/details that will be covered in your paper. The body then discusses that topic in detail; thus, the introduction gives the reader an idea of what is to come. The conclusion simply sums up the entire paper and further establishes the paper’s point.
- If you look at the introduction, you will notice another pattern. The main idea of the paper can be found towards the beginning, usually in the first or second sentence. Then you will notice that the introduction briefly lists the supporting evidence or detailed ideas that the writer will use to discuss the main topic (thesis). You should be able to identify each detailed idea. This is the basic structure of all introductions. When you read an example essay, take note of these elements and copy the structure in your own paper. Always be sure to write an introduction that clearly identifies your main topic and lists supporting evidence.
- In the body of the essay, you will notice that each piece of supporting evidence listed in the introduction becomes the main idea for the body paragraphs. The first supporting detail listed in the introduction becomes the topic of the first body paragraph, and so on. Each body paragraph uses basically the same structure of the introduction: the main idea is followed by supporting evidence. Thus, you have the essay’s thesis supported with details/evidence along with more specific details for further evidence in the body of the paper. Each body paragraph provides support for each supporting topic. You can copy this structure into your own essay. Make sure to clearly list your supporting evidence and explain each one thoroughly, always restating your paper’s main thesis to remind the reader how it relates.
- Lastly, the conclusion of the paper ties it all together and strives to convince the reader of the writer’s thesis. The conclusion summarizes the paper and repeats the main idea along with supporting evidence to carefully pull together the entire paper. When it’s your turn to write, remember to simply summarize your main ideas without rewriting the entire paper. Be clear and succinct. When using example essays, you will see that the skeleton of each essay is basically the same. All you have to do is provide the meat – the main ideas and all the details. If you can successfully copy the template provided by an example essay, you can easily write your own perfect paper.
