From Geocities 2: Essay writing for (clever) dummies

 Essay writing for (clever) dummies


Avoid having your work DEVALUED.


Each body paragraph in an essay should PEE or SEARCH:

P point

E explain, expand the point

E example(s) to support the point


Here is another somewhat more detailed way to think of this:

S   State the point

E   Explain, expand the point

A    AND

R   Refer to text to support the point

CCite (quote) to support the reference

H – HOW does the composer make his/her point? How does the text work? How does the responder get the idea, feeling, etc.?
