Essay Writing Tips:
1. Introductory Paragraphs
● THESIS statement (this is the overall argument of the essay) — it can be placed
anywhere within the intro. paragraph
● State the MAIN POINTS that will be used to prove your argument (use the same
order as in the body paragraphs)
● Do NOT give or discuss evidence
● Add important information
● 3 to 6 sentences
● Consider WHY this thesis is significant or important or HOW it contributes to a
specific discussion (for example, in terms of race relations)
2. Body Paragraphs
● ONE main point per paragraph
● Begin the paragraph with a TOPIC sentence (what is the paragraph about?) (this
could be the second sentence of the paragraph if the first sentence is a
transitional one)
● Include evidence from the primary text
● Explain the connection between the point and the evidence
● Explain the connection between the point and the overall thesis
● Try to have transitional phrases connecting the paragraphs (either at the end of
one paragraph or the beginning of the next)
● A direct quotation is one in which the text is from the source is copied verbatim in
the essay and is placed in quotation marks
● An indirect quotation is one in which the text from a source is given in the essay
but the wording is changed (no quotation marks)
● Identify all direct and indirect quotations within the body of the essay according to
the MLA format — failure to cite sources properly may constitute plagiarism
3. Concluding Paragraphs
● In general, this is a repeat of the introduction, worded DIFFERENTLY
● Do NOT add new evidence or points
● Perhaps include a new direction for investigation

are within a direct quotation
