Plan an Essay

Posted 2013-08-30 by Jessica Rudgleyfollow
Essays are used both in school and university as well as for something like a job application. Essays can be very time consuming, but planning how it will be written can reduce the amount of time it takes dramatically! An essay plan is a great way to begin a written assignment, particularly if you're unsure of what you'll do. It allows you to plan a direction, and best of all, the more you practice planning an essay, the quicker it will be!

Time: 5 minutes

Materials
Your essay question
a blank word document (or a pen, highlighter and some paper, depending on how you like to work)
some research, or if its an English essay, the book you're writing about.

Method
  • Write down your essay question largely.
  • High light any key terms, such as "analyse", "compare", "contrast" or anything you might need to define, for example, "globalization" or "security".
  • Using the 5 paragraph method, divide up your word count. The 5 paragraph method includes an introduction, a conclusion and 3 main paragraphs. Alternatively you might like to divide your main body by the key terms in a University essay.
    Breaking up the word count
  • Write your topic sentences for each paragraph in the body. A good topic sentence states the point the paragraph will make, but in a general way.
  • Write down, under the appropriate topic sentences, some quotes to support your points in the paragraph.
  • Your essay plan is now complete! All that's left to do now is write your quotes into the paragraphs and flesh out your introduction and conclusion.
