How to write a good essay?

QUESTION
How to write a good essay?
I need some tips on how to write a great essay, like where to separate paragraphs, etc.

Any suggestions??

Thanks!

ANSWER
My suggestion, and one I use and have my 8th grader use, is get a graphic organizer for your essay. It will guide you through the writing process and assure that you do a good Intro with a ‘hook’ and thesis statement, have good body paragraphs that support your thesis with examples and focus your conclusion with a thesis wrap up and future prediction based on your stance.

Here are some sites I just looked up for you to review the graphics available and information

if the issue remains that you don’t know “where to separate paragraphs” do a google search for “paragraph structure in essay writing” or something along that line, you should get good sites for the information that way. But, where to separate paragraphs should be easy, you end a paragraph when you stop addressing the topic sentence of that paragraph …. and transition to the next “thesis” point.

good luck
