Basic structure for a 500 word essay

 

  1. The Introduction – A short introductory paragraph that ends with your thesis statement.
  2. The Body – A group of paragraphs in which you offer details and analysis to state your case. Use evidence from the text: You may describe a scene or moment but if you’re referring to specific lines, quote those lines. The body of your paper should be about 2 paragraphs, but I’m not going to be counting up the number of points you made but rather assessing the quality of your argument..
  3. A short conclusion to summarize and reinforce your argument. Topic Sentences

Topic sentences are the sentences that begin the paragraphs in the body of your essay. These are like mini-thesis statements that support your overall argument. They should answer the question, “What are you doing in this paragraph?” The three points I asked you to write out are like topic sentences.

EXAMPLE STRUCTURE:

TITLE – Love and Death in “Porphyria’s Lover” (CENTER YOUR TITLE)
INTRODUCTION –  Introduce the work, describe your perspective, and end this
  paragraph with a thesis statement. Ie. In “Porphyria’s Lover,” the
  main character’s madness depends on his belief that he is god-like.
BODY – Body Paragraph 1 – Start with the first topic sentence: His murder
       
  stems from his belief that Porphyria worships him. Followed by
  EVIDENCE AND ANALYSIS.
  Body Paragraph 2 – Start with second topic sentence: He attempts
  to control her and govern her. Followed by EVIDENCE AND
  ANALYSIS.
  Body Paragraph 3 (OPTIONAL – YOU MAY ONLY HAVE
  TWO BODY PARAGRAPHS) Third topic sentence: He feels that
  his actions are completely justified.
CONCLUSION – Summarize and Reaffirm your argument.
