Whichever angle you choose, make sure that it ties in with your thesis statement, which will be included as the last sentence of your introduction.
The conclusion brings closure of the topic and sums up your overall ideas while providing a final perspective on your topic.
Now that you have chosen a topic and sorted your ideas into relevant categories, you must create a thesis statement. For instance, if you were writing about Bill Clinton and his impact on the United States, an appropriate thesis statement would be, “Bill Clinton has impacted the future of our country through his two consecutive terms as United States President.” Another example of a thesis statement is this one for the “Winning Characteristics” Scholarship essay: “During my high school career, I have exhibited several of the “Winning Characteristics,” including Communication Skills, Leadership Skills and Organization Skills, through my involvement in Student Government, National Honor Society, and a part-time job at Macy’s Department Store.” The body of your essay argues, explains or describes your topic.
Your thesis statement tells the reader the point of your essay. Each main idea that you wrote in your diagram or outline will become a separate section within the body of your essay.
However, this opportunity also gives you the advantage to choose a subject that is interesting or relevant to you. By taking what’s already in your head and putting it to paper, you are able to see connections and links between ideas more clearly.
This structure serves as a foundation for your paper.
If your essay is describing a process, such as how to make a great chocolate cake, make sure that your paragraphs fall in the correct order.
Review the instructions for your essay, if applicable.
Draw three to five lines branching off from this topic and write down your main ideas at the ends of these lines.
Draw more lines off these main ideas and include any thoughts you may have on these ideas.
