how to write a good essay?
i have a test tomorrow and I am writing an essay, what’s your opinion of a good essay??
You want to have at least three paragraphs, an introduction, a body, and a conclusion. The normal for an essay though is 5 paragraphs with 3 of which being body ones.
In the introduction you want to grab the readers attention, restate the prompt, and then have a basic answer to what is being asked. You want your last sentence to be the thesis, or the one that summarizes everything you are going to talk about in your essay.
The body paragraphs include the details of what you said you were going to talk about in your introduction, remember to give credit to information that is not yours specifically. You also want to order your body paragraphs from the one with the least information to the one with the most information, that way you are building suspense.
For the conclusion, you just restate everything that you have already said, including the thesis, prompt, and what you already have discussed. Along with any other important thoughts.
Each paragraph should be 3-5 sentences long, depending on what the teacher asks, it is best to go with 5 just incase.
Best of luck
