When I studied Willa Cather and had to write my essay about her, I had these parts in my outline: introduction about her birth, family, and younger years, the main body about the highlights of her career and the major works, and the conclusion about her literary heritage to the upcoming generations.
Focus on the mix of kindness and impudence. Nice and bad, etc.
He pulled off the train and looked around. Everything was the same — the same waiting room with shabby seats, the same booking office, even the same cashier (an envious woman with bright red lips).
He could not believe that he was there seven years ago.
It seemed it was yesterday.
Try something like this.
You should follow your own ideas actually. Only you can do it the best.
The expository essay is written for the explanation of the particular phenomenon or process. Factual data should be used to demonstrate the particular features of the thing being described. It is necessary to be careful when using facts. They should be written in logical manner. As the author writes an expository essay, he should make up some argument and provide aspects for and against it. The whole process can be divided into several steps.
1. Choose the topic. It does not seem to be difficult, but you should be careful. Do not choose general topics that are known to everyone. Be specific.
2. Conduct research. You should make sure that you have all necessary data for proving your position and proper description. It is always better to use only peer-reviewed books, articles, and other relevant sources.
3. Thesis statement. Be sure to write a good thesis statement. It should be a part of your introductory paragraph. Thesis statement is not usually the first sentence, but if it is, you should develop the idea in following sentences.
4. Group your facts. Every body paragraph of your paper should be devoted to the separate idea. Find facts that refer only to one issue and mention them in one paragraph. Do not repeat the same ideas and facts in other paragraphs. Otherwise, the essay will not look as an academic piece of writing. 5. Cohesion and coherence. The next thing to do is to check whether all your paragraphs are logically connected. The last sentence of previous paragraph should be the beginning of the next paragraph.
6. Conclusion. In this part of the essay, you should summarize all your findings and explain your position.
best to choose a subject that has been already studied cos with speeches you needn’t actually create something new, it’s not a research paper or smth, you study the literature and choose good support for each of your statements..could be social issues like
“why we need to pay attention to children who experienced parenta divorce”
or you can go for evironmentalism, for ex.,
“why gorillas need our help”..you can make it a list, for ex.,
“10 reasons we all should care about excessive tap water usage”
“8 ways we help the planet using paper bags”..
good luck to you
The subject’s good, though the thesis should be improved, I think. As for me, it sounds too general. What do you mean by “a highly negative impact”? Don’t you think that “highly” might seem a bit exaggerated?
It’s not that I am trying to criticise, I just want to help you make the thesis more straight to the point.
Here are some tips on how to improve it:
make it clear;
follow a logic structure;
choose the words that intrigue the readers;
let the readers get a complete idea of what your paper is going to be about.
Is your main message that Afro-Americans are a disadvantaged group due to the unjust social treatment? Anyway, it’s up to YOU to decide what your thesis statement is to look like.
Hope, you’ll use the tips to make it perfect!
