In order to write any essay, one follows the same basic steps. First, you need a topic. Your topic should give you a sense of purpose in your essay. You will need to know what type of essay you are writing (persuasive, comparison-contrast, etc) and you will need to know who your audience is (teacher, other students, etc). Once you have your topic, you will need to brainstorm some ideas. Select one thing from your brainstorm that you want to write about. Use this idea to generate a thesis statement, or the thing you are going to prove in your essay. Next, you will want to write an introduction. Start with a hook, or a statement that will draw the reader's interest. Once you have your introduction, you can begin the body of your essay. This should contain information proving your thesis statement. This proof could be facts, personal experience, or other information. Be sure you use a different paragraph for each piece of evidence. Once you have written your body paragraphs (at least 3), you will need to finish your paper by writing a conclusion. This is the last paragraph of the essay and serves to wrap up the topic. In the last sentence, try to leave your reader with something to think about. See the links below for more information on writing a good essay.
