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
C – Cite (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.?
