The Modes of Discourse—Exposition, Description, Narration, Argumentation (EDNA)—are common paper assignments you may encounter in your writing classes. Although these genres have been criticized by some composition scholars, the Purdue OWL recognizes the wide spread use of these approaches and students’ need to understand and produce them.

This resource begins with a general description of essay writing and moves to a discussion of common essay genres students may encounter across the curriculum. The four genres of essays (description, narration, exposition, and argumentation) are common paper assignments you may encounter in your writing classes. Although these genres, also known as the modes of discourse, have been criticized by some composition scholars, the Purdue OWL recognizes the wide spread use of these genres and students’ need to understand and produce these types of essays. We hope these resources will help.

The essay is a commonly assigned form of writing that every student will encounter while in academia. Therefore, it is wise for the student to become capable and comfortable with this type of writing early on in her training.

Essays can be a rewarding and challenging type of writing and are often assigned either to be done in class, which requires previous planning and practice (and a bit of creativity) on the part of the student, or as homework, which likewise demands a certain amount of preparation. Many poorly crafted essays have been produced on account of a lack of preparation and confidence. However, students can avoid the discomfort often associated with essay writing by understanding some common genres.

Before delving into its various genres, let’s begin with a basic definition of the essay.

What is an essay?

Though the word essay has come to be understood as a type of writing in Modern English, its origins provide us with some useful insights. The word comes into the English language through the French influence on Middle English; tracing it back further, we find that the French form of the word comes from the Latin verb exigere , which means "to examine, test, or (literally) to drive out." Through the excavation of this ancient word, we are able to unearth the essence of the academic essay: to encourage students to test or examine their ideas concerning a particular topic.

Essays are shorter pieces of writing that often require the student to hone a number of skills such as close reading, analysis, comparison and contrast, persuasion, conciseness, clarity, and exposition. As is evidenced by this list of attributes, there is much to be gained by the student who strives to succeed at essay writing.

The purpose of an essay is to encourage students to develop ideas and concepts in their writing with the direction of little more than their own thoughts (it may be helpful to view the essay as the converse of a research paper). Therefore, essays are (by nature) concise and require clarity in purpose and direction. This means that there is no room for the student’s thoughts to wander or stray from his or her purpose; the writing must be deliberate and interesting.

This handout should help students become familiar and comfortable with the process of essay composition through the introduction of some common essay genres.

This handout includes a brief introduction to the following genres of essay writing:

  • Expository essays
  • Descriptive essays
  • Narrative essays
  • Argumentative (Persuasive) essays

How to Write an Essay

Last Updated: February 1, 2024 Fact Checked

This article was co-authored by Christopher Taylor, PhD and by wikiHow staff writer, Megaera Lorenz, PhD . Christopher Taylor is an Adjunct Assistant Professor of English at Austin Community College in Texas. He received his PhD in English Literature and Medieval Studies from the University of Texas at Austin in 2014. There are 18 references cited in this article, which can be found at the bottom of the page. This article has been fact-checked, ensuring the accuracy of any cited facts and confirming the authority of its sources. This article has been viewed 7,899,347 times.

An essay is a common type of academic writing that you'll likely be asked to do in multiple classes. Before you start writing your essay, make sure you understand the details of the assignment so that you know how to approach the essay and what your focus should be. Once you've chosen a topic, do some research and narrow down the main argument(s) you'd like to make. From there, you'll need to write an outline and flesh out your essay, which should consist of an introduction, body, and conclusion. After your essay is drafted, spend some time revising it to ensure your writing is as strong as possible.

Understanding Your Assignment

Step 1 Read your assignment carefully.

  • The compare/contrast essay , which focuses on analyzing the similarities and differences between 2 things, such as ideas, people, events, places, or works of art.
  • The narrative essay , which tells a story.
  • The argumentative essay , in which the writer uses evidence and examples to convince the reader of their point of view.
  • The critical or analytical essay, which examines something (such as a text or work of art) in detail. This type of essay may attempt to answer specific questions about the subject or focus more generally on its meaning.
  • The informative essay , that educates the reader about a topic.

Step 2 Check for formatting and style requirements.

  • How long your essay should be
  • Which citation style to use
  • Formatting requirements, such as margin size , line spacing, and font size and type

Christopher Taylor, PhD

Christopher Taylor, PhD

Christopher Taylor, Professor of English, tells us: "Most essays will contain an introduction, a body or discussion portion, and a conclusion. When assigned a college essay, make sure to check the specific structural conventions related to your essay genre , your field of study, and your professor's expectations."

Step 3 Narrow down your topic so your essay has a clear focus.

  • If you're doing a research-based essay , you might find some inspiration from reading through some of the major sources on the subject.
  • For a critical essay, you might choose to focus on a particular theme in the work you're discussing, or analyze the meaning of a specific passage.

Step 4 Ask for clarification if you don't understand the assignment.

  • If you're having trouble narrowing down your topic, your instructor might be able to provide guidance or inspiration.

Planning and Organizing Your Essay

Step 1 Find some reputable sources on your topic.

  • Academic books and journals tend to be good sources of information. In addition to print sources, you may be able to find reliable information in scholarly databases such as JSTOR and Google Scholar.
  • You can also look for primary source documents, such as letters, eyewitness accounts, and photographs.
  • Always evaluate your sources critically. Even research papers by reputable academics can contain hidden biases, outdated information, and simple errors or faulty logic.

Tip: In general, Wikipedia articles are not considered appropriate sources for academic writing. However, you may be able to find useful sources in the “References” section at the end of the article.

Step 2 Make notes...

  • You might find it helpful to write your notes down on individual note cards or enter them into a text document on your computer so you can easily copy, paste , and rearrange them however you like.
  • Try organizing your notes into different categories so you can identify specific ideas you'd like to focus on. For example, if you're analyzing a short story , you might put all your notes on a particular theme or character together.

Step 3 Choose a question to answer or an issue to address.

  • For example, if your essay is about the factors that led to the end of the Bronze Age in the ancient Middle East, you might focus on the question, “What role did natural disasters play in the collapse of Late Bronze Age society?”

Step 4 Create a thesis...

  • One easy way to come up with a thesis statement is to briefly answer the main question you would like to address.
  • For example, if the question is “What role did natural disasters play in the collapse of Late Bronze Age society?” then your thesis might be, “Natural disasters during the Late Bronze Age destabilized local economies across the region. This set in motion a series of mass migrations of different peoples, creating widespread conflict that contributed to the collapse of several major Bronze Age political centers.”

Step 5 Write an outline...

  • When you write the outline, think about how you would like to organize your essay. For example, you might start with your strongest arguments and then move to the weakest ones. Or, you could begin with a general overview of the source you're analyzing and then move on to addressing the major themes, tone, and style of the work.
  • Introduction
  • Point 1, with supporting examples
  • Point 2, with supporting examples
  • Point 3, with supporting examples
  • Major counter-argument(s) to your thesis
  • Your rebuttals to the counter-argument(s)

Drafting the Essay

Step 1 Write an introduction...

  • For example, if you're writing a critical essay about a work of art, your introduction might start with some basic information about the work, such as who created it, when and where it was created, and a brief description of the work itself. From there, introduce the question(s) about the work you'd like to address and present your thesis.
  • A strong introduction should also contain a brief transitional sentence that creates a link to the first point or argument you would like to make. For example, if you're discussing the use of color in a work of art, lead-in by saying you'd like to start with an overview of symbolic color use in contemporary works by other artists.

Tip: Some writers find it helpful to write the introduction after they've written the rest of the essay. Once you've written out your main points, it's easier to summarize the gist of your essay in a few introductory sentences.

Step 2 Present your argument(s) in detail.

  • For example, your topic sentence might be something like, “Arthur Conan Doyle's Sherlock Holmes stories are among the many literary influences apparent in P. G. Wodehouse's Jeeves novels.” You could then back this up by quoting a passage that contains a reference to Sherlock Holmes.
  • Try to show how the arguments in each paragraph link back to the main thesis of your essay.

Step 3 Use transition sentences between paragraphs.

  • When creating transitions, transitional phrases can be helpful. For example, use words and phrases such as “In addition,” “Therefore,” “Similarly,” “Subsequently,” or “As a result.”
  • For example, if you've just discussed the use of color to create contrast in a work of art, you might start the next paragraph with, “In addition to color, the artist also uses different line weights to distinguish between the more static and dynamic figures in the scene.”

Step 4 Address possible counterarguments.

  • For example, if you're arguing that a particular kind of shrimp decorates its shell with red algae to attract a mate, you'll need to address the counterargument that the shell decoration is a warning to predators. You might do this by presenting evidence that the red shrimp are, in fact, more likely to get eaten than shrimp with undecorated shells.

Step 5 Cite your sources...

  • The way you cite your sources will vary depending on the citation style you're using. Typically, you'll need to include the name of the author, the title and publication date of the source, and location information such as the page number on which the information appears.
  • In general, you don't need to cite common knowledge. For example, if you say, “A zebra is a type of mammal,” you probably won't need to cite a source.
  • If you've cited any sources in the essay, you'll need to include a list of works cited (or a bibliography ) at the end.

Step 6 Wrap up with...

  • Keep your conclusion brief. While the appropriate length will vary based on the length of the essay, it should typically be no longer than 1-2 paragraphs.
  • For example, if you're writing a 1,000-word essay, your conclusion should be about 4-5 sentences long. [16] X Research source

Revising the Essay

Step 1 Take a break...

  • If you don't have time to spend a couple of days away from your essay, at least take a few hours to relax or work on something else.

Step 2 Read over your draft to check for obvious problems.

  • Excessive wordiness
  • Points that aren't explained enough
  • Tangents or unnecessary information
  • Unclear transitions or illogical organization
  • Spelling , grammar , style, and formatting problems
  • Inappropriate language or tone (e.g., slang or informal language in an academic essay)

Step 3 Correct any major problems you find.

  • You might have to cut material from your essay in some places and add new material to others.
  • You might also end up reordering some of the content of the essay if you think that helps it flow better.

Step 4 Proofread your revised essay.

  • Read over each line slowly and carefully. It may be helpful to read each sentence out loud to yourself.

Tip: If possible, have someone else check your work. When you've been looking at your writing for too long, your brain begins to fill in what it expects to see rather than what's there, making it harder for you to spot mistakes.

Then, organize your notes into an outline that supports and explains your thesis statement. Working from your outline, write an introduction and subsequent paragraphs to address each major point. Start every paragraph with a topic sentence that briefly explains the main point of that paragraph. Finally, finish your paper with a strong conclusion that sums up the most important points.

Need to defend your opinion on an issue? Argumentative essays are one of the most popular types of essays you’ll write in school. They combine persuasive arguments with fact-based research, and, when done well, can be powerful tools for making someone agree with your point of view. If you’re struggling to write an argumentative essay or just want to learn more about them, seeing examples can be a big help.

After giving an overview of this type of essay, we provide three argumentative essay examples. After each essay, we explain in-depth how the essay was structured, what worked, and where the essay could be improved. We end with tips for making your own argumentative essay as strong as possible.

What Is an Argumentative Essay?

An argumentative essay is an essay that uses evidence and facts to support the claim it’s making. Its purpose is to persuade the reader to agree with the argument being made.

A good argumentative essay will use facts and evidence to support the argument, rather than just the author’s thoughts and opinions. For example, say you wanted to write an argumentative essay stating that Charleston, SC is a great destination for families. You couldn’t just say that it’s a great place because you took your family there and enjoyed it. For it to be an argumentative essay, you need to have facts and data to support your argument, such as the number of child-friendly attractions in Charleston, special deals you can get with kids, and surveys of people who visited Charleston as a family and enjoyed it. The first argument is based entirely on feelings, whereas the second is based on evidence that can be proven.

The standard five paragraph format is common, but not required, for argumentative essays. These essays typically follow one of two formats: the Toulmin model or the Rogerian model.

  • The Toulmin model is the most common. It begins with an introduction, follows with a thesis/claim, and gives data and evidence to support that claim. This style of essay also includes rebuttals of counterarguments.
  • The Rogerian model analyzes two sides of an argument and reaches a conclusion after weighing the strengths and weaknesses of each.

3 Good Argumentative Essay Examples + Analysis

Below are three examples of argumentative essays, written by yours truly in my school days, as well as analysis of what each did well and where it could be improved.

Argumentative Essay Example 1

Proponents of this idea state that it will save local cities and towns money because libraries are expensive to maintain. They also believe it will encourage more people to read because they won’t have to travel to a library to get a book; they can simply click on what they want to read and read it from wherever they are. They could also access more materials because libraries won’t have to buy physical copies of books; they can simply rent out as many digital copies as they need.

However, it would be a serious mistake to replace libraries with tablets. First, digital books and resources are associated with less learning and more problems than print resources. A study done on tablet vs book reading found that people read 20-30% slower on tablets, retain 20% less information, and understand 10% less of what they read compared to people who read the same information in print. Additionally, staring too long at a screen has been shown to cause numerous health problems, including blurred vision, dizziness, dry eyes, headaches, and eye strain, at much higher instances than reading print does. People who use tablets and mobile devices excessively also have a higher incidence of more serious health issues such as fibromyalgia, shoulder and back pain, carpal tunnel syndrome, and muscle strain. I know that whenever I read from my e-reader for too long, my eyes begin to feel tired and my neck hurts. We should not add to these problems by giving people, especially young people, more reasons to look at screens.

Second, it is incredibly narrow-minded to assume that the only service libraries offer is book lending. Libraries have a multitude of benefits, and many are only available if the library has a physical location. Some of these benefits include acting as a quiet study space, giving people a way to converse with their neighbors, holding classes on a variety of topics, providing jobs, answering patron questions, and keeping the community connected. One neighborhood found that, after a local library instituted community events such as play times for toddlers and parents, job fairs for teenagers, and meeting spaces for senior citizens, over a third of residents reported feeling more connected to their community. Similarly, a Pew survey conducted in 2015 found that nearly two-thirds of American adults feel that closing their local library would have a major impact on their community. People see libraries as a way to connect with others and get their questions answered, benefits tablets can’t offer nearly as well or as easily.

While replacing libraries with tablets may seem like a simple solution, it would encourage people to spend even more time looking at digital screens, despite the myriad issues surrounding them. It would also end access to many of the benefits of libraries that people have come to rely on. In many areas, libraries are such an important part of the community network that they could never be replaced by a simple object.

The author begins by giving an overview of the counter-argument, then the thesis appears as the first sentence in the third paragraph. The essay then spends the rest of the paper dismantling the counter argument and showing why readers should believe the other side.

What this essay does well:

  • Although it’s a bit unusual to have the thesis appear fairly far into the essay, it works because, once the thesis is stated, the rest of the essay focuses on supporting it since the counter-argument has already been discussed earlier in the paper.
  • This essay includes numerous facts and cites studies to support its case. By having specific data to rely on, the author’s argument is stronger and readers will be more inclined to agree with it.
  • For every argument the other side makes, the author makes sure to refute it and follow up with why her opinion is the stronger one. In order to make a strong argument, it’s important to dismantle the other side, which this essay does this by making the author's view appear stronger.
  • This is a shorter paper, and if it needed to be expanded to meet length requirements, it could include more examples and go more into depth with them, such as by explaining specific cases where people benefited from local libraries.
  • Additionally, while the paper uses lots of data, the author also mentions their own experience with using tablets. This should be removed since argumentative essays focus on facts and data to support an argument, not the author’s own opinion or experiences. Replacing that with more data on health issues associated with screen time would strengthen the essay.
  • Some of the points made aren't completely accurate , particularly the one about digital books being cheaper. It actually often costs a library more money to rent out numerous digital copies of a book compared to buying a single physical copy. Make sure in your own essay you thoroughly research each of the points and rebuttals you make, otherwise you'll look like you don't know the issue that well.

Argumentative Essay Example 2

There are multiple drugs available to treat malaria, and many of them work well and save lives, but malaria eradication programs that focus too much on them and not enough on prevention haven’t seen long-term success in Sub-Saharan Africa. A major program to combat malaria was WHO’s Global Malaria Eradication Programme. Started in 1955, it had a goal of eliminating malaria in Africa within the next ten years. Based upon previously successful programs in Brazil and the United States, the program focused mainly on vector control. This included widely distributing chloroquine and spraying large amounts of DDT. More than one billion dollars was spent trying to abolish malaria. However, the program suffered from many problems and in 1969, WHO was forced to admit that the program had not succeeded in eradicating malaria. The number of people in Sub-Saharan Africa who contracted malaria as well as the number of malaria deaths had actually increased over 10% during the time the program was active.

One of the major reasons for the failure of the project was that it set uniform strategies and policies. By failing to consider variations between governments, geography, and infrastructure, the program was not nearly as successful as it could have been. Sub-Saharan Africa has neither the money nor the infrastructure to support such an elaborate program, and it couldn’t be run the way it was meant to. Most African countries don't have the resources to send all their people to doctors and get shots, nor can they afford to clear wetlands or other malaria prone areas. The continent’s spending per person for eradicating malaria was just a quarter of what Brazil spent. Sub-Saharan Africa simply can’t rely on a plan that requires more money, infrastructure, and expertise than they have to spare.

Additionally, the widespread use of chloroquine has created drug resistant parasites which are now plaguing Sub-Saharan Africa. Because chloroquine was used widely but inconsistently, mosquitoes developed resistance, and chloroquine is now nearly completely ineffective in Sub-Saharan Africa, with over 95% of mosquitoes resistant to it. As a result, newer, more expensive drugs need to be used to prevent and treat malaria, which further drives up the cost of malaria treatment for a region that can ill afford it.

Instead of developing plans to treat malaria after the infection has incurred, programs should focus on preventing infection from occurring in the first place. Not only is this plan cheaper and more effective, reducing the number of people who contract malaria also reduces loss of work/school days which can further bring down the productivity of the region.

One of the cheapest and most effective ways of preventing malaria is to implement insecticide-treated bed nets (ITNs).  These nets provide a protective barrier around the person or people using them. While untreated bed nets are still helpful, those treated with insecticides are much more useful because they stop mosquitoes from biting people through the nets, and they help reduce mosquito populations in a community, thus helping people who don’t even own bed nets.  Bed nets are also very effective because most mosquito bites occur while the person is sleeping, so bed nets would be able to drastically reduce the number of transmissions during the night. In fact, transmission of malaria can be reduced by as much as 90% in areas where the use of ITNs is widespread. Because money is so scarce in Sub-Saharan Africa, the low cost is a great benefit and a major reason why the program is so successful. Bed nets cost roughly 2 USD to make, last several years, and can protect two adults. Studies have shown that, for every 100-1000 more nets are being used, one less child dies of malaria. With an estimated 300 million people in Africa not being protected by mosquito nets, there’s the potential to save three million lives by spending just a few dollars per person.

Reducing the number of people who contract malaria would also reduce poverty levels in Africa significantly, thus improving other aspects of society like education levels and the economy. Vector control is more effective than treatment strategies because it means fewer people are getting sick. When fewer people get sick, the working population is stronger as a whole because people are not put out of work from malaria, nor are they caring for sick relatives. Malaria-afflicted families can typically only harvest 40% of the crops that healthy families can harvest. Additionally, a family with members who have malaria spends roughly a quarter of its income treatment, not including the loss of work they also must deal with due to the illness. It’s estimated that malaria costs Africa 12 billion USD in lost income every year. A strong working population creates a stronger economy, which Sub-Saharan Africa is in desperate need of.  

This essay begins with an introduction, which ends with the thesis (that malaria eradication plans in Sub-Saharan Africa should focus on prevention rather than treatment). The first part of the essay lays out why the counter argument (treatment rather than prevention) is not as effective, and the second part of the essay focuses on why prevention of malaria is the better path to take.

  • The thesis appears early, is stated clearly, and is supported throughout the rest of the essay. This makes the argument clear for readers to understand and follow throughout the essay.
  • There’s lots of solid research in this essay, including specific programs that were conducted and how successful they were, as well as specific data mentioned throughout. This evidence helps strengthen the author’s argument.
  • The author makes a case for using expanding bed net use over waiting until malaria occurs and beginning treatment, but not much of a plan is given for how the bed nets would be distributed or how to ensure they’re being used properly. By going more into detail of what she believes should be done, the author would be making a stronger argument.
  • The introduction of the essay does a good job of laying out the seriousness of the problem, but the conclusion is short and abrupt. Expanding it into its own paragraph would give the author a final way to convince readers of her side of the argument.

Argumentative Essay Example 3

There are many ways payments could work. They could be in the form of a free-market approach, where athletes are able to earn whatever the market is willing to pay them, it could be a set amount of money per athlete, or student athletes could earn income from endorsements, autographs, and control of their likeness, similar to the way top Olympians earn money.

Proponents of the idea believe that, because college athletes are the ones who are training, participating in games, and bringing in audiences, they should receive some sort of compensation for their work. If there were no college athletes, the NCAA wouldn’t exist, college coaches wouldn’t receive there (sometimes very high) salaries, and brands like Nike couldn’t profit from college sports. In fact, the NCAA brings in roughly $1 billion in revenue a year, but college athletes don’t receive any of that money in the form of a paycheck. Additionally, people who believe college athletes should be paid state that paying college athletes will actually encourage them to remain in college longer and not turn pro as quickly, either by giving them a way to begin earning money in college or requiring them to sign a contract stating they’ll stay at the university for a certain number of years while making an agreed-upon salary.  

Supporters of this idea point to Zion Williamson, the Duke basketball superstar, who, during his freshman year, sustained a serious knee injury. Many argued that, even if he enjoyed playing for Duke, it wasn’t worth risking another injury and ending his professional career before it even began for a program that wasn’t paying him. Williamson seems to have agreed with them and declared his eligibility for the NCAA draft later that year. If he was being paid, he may have stayed at Duke longer. In fact, roughly a third of student athletes surveyed stated that receiving a salary while in college would make them “strongly consider” remaining collegiate athletes longer before turning pro.

Paying athletes could also stop the recruitment scandals that have plagued the NCAA. In 2018, the NCAA stripped the University of Louisville's men's basketball team of its 2013 national championship title because it was discovered coaches were using sex workers to entice recruits to join the team. There have been dozens of other recruitment scandals where college athletes and recruits have been bribed with anything from having their grades changed, to getting free cars, to being straight out bribed. By paying college athletes and putting their salaries out in the open, the NCAA could end the illegal and underhanded ways some schools and coaches try to entice athletes to join.

People who argue against the idea of paying college athletes believe the practice could be disastrous for college sports. By paying athletes, they argue, they’d turn college sports into a bidding war, where only the richest schools could afford top athletes, and the majority of schools would be shut out from developing a talented team (though some argue this already happens because the best players often go to the most established college sports programs, who typically pay their coaches millions of dollars per year). It could also ruin the tight camaraderie of many college teams if players become jealous that certain teammates are making more money than they are.

They also argue that paying college athletes actually means only a small fraction would make significant money. Out of the 350 Division I athletic departments, fewer than a dozen earn any money. Nearly all the money the NCAA makes comes from men’s football and basketball, so paying college athletes would make a small group of men--who likely will be signed to pro teams and begin making millions immediately out of college--rich at the expense of other players.

Those against paying college athletes also believe that the athletes are receiving enough benefits already. The top athletes already receive scholarships that are worth tens of thousands per year, they receive free food/housing/textbooks, have access to top medical care if they are injured, receive top coaching, get travel perks and free gear, and can use their time in college as a way to capture the attention of professional recruiters. No other college students receive anywhere near as much from their schools.

People on this side also point out that, while the NCAA brings in a massive amount of money each year, it is still a non-profit organization. How? Because over 95% of those profits are redistributed to its members’ institutions in the form of scholarships, grants, conferences, support for Division II and Division III teams, and educational programs. Taking away a significant part of that revenue would hurt smaller programs that rely on that money to keep running.

While both sides have good points, it’s clear that the negatives of paying college athletes far outweigh the positives. College athletes spend a significant amount of time and energy playing for their school, but they are compensated for it by the scholarships and perks they receive. Adding a salary to that would result in a college athletic system where only a small handful of athletes (those likely to become millionaires in the professional leagues) are paid by a handful of schools who enter bidding wars to recruit them, while the majority of student athletics and college athletic programs suffer or even shut down for lack of money. Continuing to offer the current level of benefits to student athletes makes it possible for as many people to benefit from and enjoy college sports as possible.

This argumentative essay follows the Rogerian model. It discusses each side, first laying out multiple reasons people believe student athletes should be paid, then discussing reasons why the athletes shouldn’t be paid. It ends by stating that college athletes shouldn’t be paid by arguing that paying them would destroy college athletics programs and cause them to have many of the issues professional sports leagues have.

  • Both sides of the argument are well developed, with multiple reasons why people agree with each side. It allows readers to get a full view of the argument and its nuances.
  • Certain statements on both sides are directly rebuffed in order to show where the strengths and weaknesses of each side lie and give a more complete and sophisticated look at the argument.
  • Using the Rogerian model can be tricky because oftentimes you don’t explicitly state your argument until the end of the paper. Here, the thesis doesn’t appear until the first sentence of the final paragraph. That doesn’t give readers a lot of time to be convinced that your argument is the right one, compared to a paper where the thesis is stated in the beginning and then supported throughout the paper. This paper could be strengthened if the final paragraph was expanded to more fully explain why the author supports the view, or if the paper had made it clearer that paying athletes was the weaker argument throughout.

3 Tips for Writing a Good Argumentative Essay

Now that you’ve seen examples of what good argumentative essay samples look like, follow these three tips when crafting your own essay.

#1: Make Your Thesis Crystal Clear

The thesis is the key to your argumentative essay; if it isn’t clear or readers can’t find it easily, your entire essay will be weak as a result. Always make sure that your thesis statement is easy to find. The typical spot for it is the final sentence of the introduction paragraph, but if it doesn’t fit in that spot for your essay, try to at least put it as the first or last sentence of a different paragraph so it stands out more.

Also make sure that your thesis makes clear what side of the argument you’re on. After you’ve written it, it’s a great idea to show your thesis to a couple different people--classmates are great for this. Just by reading your thesis they should be able to understand what point you’ll be trying to make with the rest of your essay.

#2: Show Why the Other Side Is Weak

When writing your essay, you may be tempted to ignore the other side of the argument and just focus on your side, but don’t do this. The best argumentative essays really tear apart the other side to show why readers shouldn’t believe it. Before you begin writing your essay, research what the other side believes, and what their strongest points are. Then, in your essay, be sure to mention each of these and use evidence to explain why they’re incorrect/weak arguments. That’ll make your essay much more effective than if you only focused on your side of the argument.

#3: Use Evidence to Support Your Side

Remember, an essay can’t be an argumentative essay if it doesn’t support its argument with evidence. For every point you make, make sure you have facts to back it up. Some examples are previous studies done on the topic, surveys of large groups of people, data points, etc. There should be lots of numbers in your argumentative essay that support your side of the argument. This will make your essay much stronger compared to only relying on your own opinions to support your argument.

Summary: Argumentative Essay Sample

Argumentative essays are persuasive essays that use facts and evidence to support their side of the argument. Most argumentative essays follow either the Toulmin model or the Rogerian model. By reading good argumentative essay examples, you can learn how to develop your essay and provide enough support to make readers agree with your opinion. When writing your essay, remember to always make your thesis clear, show where the other side is weak, and back up your opinion with data and evidence.

How to Write a Personal Essay for Your College Application

writing sample essay help

What does it take to land in the “accept” (instead of “reject”) pile?

How can you write an essay that helps advance you in the eyes of the admissions officers and makes a real impression? Here are some tips to get you started.

  • Start early.  Do not leave it until the last minute. Give yourself time when you don’t have other homework or extracurriculars hanging over your head to work on the essay.
  • Keep the focus narrow.  Your essay does not have to cover a massive, earth-shattering event. Some people in their teens haven’t experienced a major life event. Some people have. Either way, it’s okay.
  • Be yourself.  Whether writing about a painful experience or a more simple experience, use the narrative to be vulnerable and honest about who you are. Use words you would normally use. Trust your voice and the fact that your story is interesting enough in that no one else has lived it.
  • Be creative.  “Show, don’t tell,” and that applies here — to an extent. The best essays typically do both. You can help your reader see and feel what you are describing by using some figurative language throughout your piece.
  • Make a point. As you finish your final body paragraphs ask yourself “So what?” This will help you hone in on how to end your essay in a way that elevates it into a story about an insight or discovery you made about yourself, rather than just being about an experience you had.

2. Impact of Climate Change on Our Planet

Introduction Climate change, a critical global issue, has far-reaching impacts on our planet. It refers to significant changes in global temperatures and weather patterns over time. While climate has changed throughout Earth’s history, recent decades have seen unprecedented changes, largely attributed to human activities. This essay explores the impact of climate change on various aspects of our planet, including natural ecosystems, weather patterns, human health, and economic sectors. Impact on Natural Ecosystems One of the most visible impacts of climate change is on natural ecosystems. Rising temperatures and changing precipitation patterns are altering habitats globally. For instance, coral reefs, known as the rainforests of the sea, are experiencing widespread bleaching due to warmer oceans. Similarly, polar regions are facing melting ice, endangering species like polar bears and penguins. Forests are not immune either; increased temperatures and droughts lead to more frequent and intense wildfires, destroying vast areas and biodiversity. Weather Patterns and Extreme Events Climate change has significantly altered weather patterns, leading to more extreme and unpredictable weather events. The frequency and severity of droughts, heatwaves, hurricanes, and floods have increased. For example, hurricanes are becoming more intense due to warmer ocean waters, and rising sea levels are exacerbating coastal flooding. These extreme events not only cause immediate destruction but also long-term economic and social challenges. Human Health Concerns The impact of climate change on human health is increasingly evident. Higher temperatures contribute to heat-related illnesses and deaths. Changes in weather patterns also affect air quality, leading to respiratory issues. Furthermore, the spread of vector-borne diseases, such as malaria and dengue fever, is expected to increase as the climate warms, posing new health risks in regions previously unaffected. Economic and Social Impacts Economically, climate change affects various sectors, including agriculture, fisheries, and tourism. Changes in temperature and precipitation patterns disrupt food production, leading to food insecurity. Fisheries are impacted by ocean acidification and changing marine ecosystems, affecting livelihoods and food supplies. Additionally, tourism in areas like coastal regions and mountain ski resorts faces challenges due to changing climate conditions. Conclusion The impact of climate change on our planet is profound and multifaceted, affecting natural ecosystems, weather patterns, human health, and economic sectors. It is a global challenge that requires immediate and concerted efforts to mitigate and adapt to its effects. Addressing climate change involves reducing greenhouse gas emissions, preserving and restoring ecosystems, and developing sustainable practices. The time to act is now, to protect our planet for future generations.

3. Mental Health Awareness Among Youth

Mental health is a crucial aspect of overall well-being, especially among youth. It’s a pivotal period in life when individuals undergo significant physical, emotional, and social changes. Understanding and addressing mental health issues during these formative years are essential for fostering a healthy and productive society. Identifying Mental Health Issues in Youth Mental health issues can manifest in various ways, such as anxiety, depression, eating disorders, and behavioral problems. Often, these issues are misinterpreted as typical adolescent behavior, leading to a lack of proper intervention. Early identification of mental health issues is key to providing timely support and care. Signs of Mental Health Issues Changes in mood or behavior Withdrawal from social interactions Declining academic performance Changes in sleeping or eating patterns Expressions of hopelessness or worthlessness The Stigma Surrounding Mental Health One of the biggest challenges in addressing mental health among youth is the stigma associated with it. This stigma often leads to reluctance in seeking help and discussing mental health issues openly. Effects of Stigma Hesitation to seek help Lack of understanding from peers and adults Worsening of mental health conditions Creating a Supportive Environment Creating a supportive and understanding environment is vital in encouraging youth to speak about and seek help for their mental health issues. Strategies for Support Educating teachers and parents about mental health Implementing mental health programs in schools Providing access to counseling and psychological services Encouraging peer support groups The Role of Technology and Social Media In today’s digital age, technology and social media play a significant role in youths’ lives, impacting their mental health both positively and negatively. Impact of Digital Media: Social media can lead to issues like cyberbullying and unrealistic body image expectations. Technology can also be a tool for spreading awareness and providing access to resources. Conclusion Mental health awareness among youth is not just a necessity but an imperative for building a resilient, empathetic, and healthy society. Through education, support, and open conversations, we can empower our youth to face life’s challenges with strength and optimism. Creating an environment where mental health is prioritized and discussed openly will pave the way for a more understanding and supportive community, ensuring a brighter future for all.

4. Artificial Intelligence: Boon or Bane?

Introduction: In the realm of technology, artificial intelligence (AI) stands as a monumental innovation, reshaping how we live, work, and interact. But as with any significant technological advancement, AI’s impact on society sparks a crucial debate: Is it a boon or a bane? This essay delves into the multifaceted nature of AI, examining its benefits and challenges, ultimately aiming to provide a balanced perspective. The Boon of AI Enhancement of Efficiency and Productivity AI systems excel in processing vast amounts of data rapidly, significantly outpacing human capabilities. This trait has transformed industries by streamlining operations, from manufacturing with automated robotics to healthcare where AI aids in diagnosis and treatment planning. Innovation in Various Fields AI fosters innovation across diverse sectors. In education, personalized learning algorithms adapt to individual student needs, enhancing the learning experience. In environmental science, AI assists in climate modeling and conservation efforts, contributing to a more sustainable future. Improvement in Quality of Life AI’s impact on daily life is profound. Smart home devices offer convenience and enhanced security, while AI-driven personal assistants, like voice-activated systems, simplify tasks. Moreover, AI’s role in healthcare, from robotic surgeries to predictive diagnostics, has been life-altering for many. The Bane of AI Job Displacement Concerns One of the most significant fears surrounding AI is job displacement. Automation and AI systems could replace human roles, particularly in sectors like manufacturing and customer service, leading to unemployment and economic disparities. Ethical and Privacy Issues AI’s ability to analyze personal data raises privacy concerns. Issues like data misuse and surveillance have prompted debates on ethical guidelines and regulations. Furthermore, AI’s decision-making processes, if not transparent, can lead to ethical dilemmas in areas like law enforcement and lending. Dependency and Reduced Human Skill An over-reliance on AI could lead to a decline in critical human skills. For instance, excessive use of navigational AI may impair our natural sense of direction, and dependence on AI for decision-making could diminish our problem-solving abilities. Conclusion: AI, like any powerful tool, comes with its set of pros and cons. While it offers remarkable advancements and efficiencies, it also presents significant challenges and risks. The key lies in harnessing AI’s potential responsibly, with mindful consideration of ethical implications and a balanced approach to technology integration. By doing so, we can steer AI towards being more of a boon than a bane, ensuring it serves to enhance, rather than dictate, the course of human progress.

5. Sustainable Living and Environmental Conservation

6. The Influence of Social Media on Teenagers

In the digital age, social media has become a pivotal aspect of teenagers’ lives. Its impact is profound and multifaceted, influencing various aspects of their social, emotional, and educational development. This essay explores the positive and negative effects of social media on teenagers and suggests ways to mitigate its adverse impacts. Positive Impacts of Social Media 1. Connectivity and Socialization: Social media platforms like Facebook, Instagram, and Snapchat offer teenagers a space to connect with friends and family, fostering a sense of belonging and community. They can interact with peers from different parts of the world, learn about diverse cultures, and form new friendships. 2. Educational Resources: Platforms such as YouTube and educational blogs provide an abundance of learning materials. Teenagers can access tutorials, e-books, and online courses, aiding their academic growth and supplementing their school education. 3. Self-Expression and Creativity: Social media is a canvas for self-expression. Teenagers can share their thoughts, artwork, and achievements, receiving encouragement and feedback. This boosts their confidence and nurtures their creative talents. Negative Impacts of Social Media 1. Cyberbullying and Peer Pressure: The anonymity and distance provided by social media can lead to cyberbullying. Teens often face pressure to conform to certain trends or behaviors, affecting their mental health and self-esteem. 2. Distraction and Academic Decline: Excessive use of social media can become a major distraction, leading to reduced concentration and a decline in academic performance. The constant need to check notifications disrupts study routines and hinders productivity. 3. Mental Health Issues: Studies have linked prolonged social media use to mental health issues like anxiety, depression, and loneliness in teenagers. The pressure to maintain a certain image and the fear of missing out (FOMO) can be overwhelming. Mitigating the Negative Impacts 1. Educating on Digital Literacy: Schools and parents should educate teenagers about responsible social media usage. Understanding digital footprints, privacy settings, and the importance of online etiquette is crucial. 2. Encouraging Offline Interactions: Promoting real-life interactions and activities can balance online engagement. Participating in sports, clubs, and family activities helps develop social skills away from the digital world. 3. Setting Boundaries: Implementing rules on the amount of time spent on social media can be effective. Encouraging designated ‘tech-free’ times during meals or before bed can help in establishing healthy habits. Conclusion Social media’s influence on teenagers is undeniable. While it offers significant benefits in terms of connectivity, learning, and self-expression, the risks associated with cyberbullying, distraction, and mental health cannot be overlooked. By educating teenagers about the responsible use of social media and encouraging a balanced lifestyle, the negative impacts can be mitigated, harnessing its positive potential for their holistic development.

7. Equality and Diversity in the 21st Century

In the 21st century, the concepts of equality and diversity have evolved significantly, reflecting a world that is increasingly interconnected and diverse. This essay explores the importance of equality and diversity, their impact on society, and the challenges and opportunities they present in today’s global landscape. The Importance of Equality and Diversity Equality and diversity are foundational to a just and vibrant society. Equality ensures that every individual has an equal opportunity to make the most of their lives and talents. It is not only about treating individuals in the same way but also about recognizing and valuing differences to contribute and realize their full potential. Diversity, on the other hand, refers to the range of human differences, including but not limited to race, ethnicity, gender, gender identity, sexual orientation, age, social class, physical ability or attributes, religious or ethical values system, and national origin. Embracing diversity means understanding, accepting, and valuing differences between people. Impact on Society The synergy of equality and diversity has a profound impact on society. It fosters innovation and creativity by bringing together a wide range of perspectives and experiences. Organizations and societies that embrace diversity and equality tend to be more dynamic, creative, and successful. In education, a diverse and inclusive environment encourages critical thinking and exposes students to a broader range of perspectives, preparing them for global citizenship. Challenges and Opportunities Despite the clear benefits, achieving equality and diversity in the 21st century comes with challenges. Discrimination and inequality persist in many forms and settings. Stereotyping and prejudice can lead to exclusion and marginalization of certain groups. However, these challenges present opportunities. There is a growing awareness and activism around issues of inequality and discrimination. Technology and globalization have given rise to new platforms for voices advocating for change and equality. Role of Education and Policy Education plays a critical role in fostering equality and diversity. Curricula that incorporate diverse perspectives and histories can promote understanding and respect for differences. Policy-making also has a significant impact. Laws and regulations that promote equality, prevent discrimination, and protect the rights of minorities are essential for a fair society. Conclusion In conclusion, equality and diversity are not just ideals to be aspired to; they are essential components of a healthy, dynamic, and just society. The challenges in achieving these are substantial, but the opportunities they present are transformative. By embracing these principles, societies can build a foundation for a more inclusive, innovative, and equitable world.

8. The Future of Work Post-Pandemic

Introduction The COVID-19 pandemic has irreversibly transformed the landscape of work. As we transition into the post-pandemic era, it is vital to explore how these changes will continue to influence the workplace. This essay examines the emerging trends and potential future of work, considering the shifts in work culture, technology, and employee expectations. Shift to Remote and Hybrid Models One of the most significant changes is the widespread adoption of remote and hybrid work models. Companies have realized that many jobs can be done effectively from home, leading to a reevaluation of the need for physical office spaces. This shift has benefits such as reduced commute times and greater flexibility, enhancing work-life balance for employees. Increased Remote Opportunities : Companies are now more open to hiring remote employees, broadening the talent pool. Hybrid Work Environments : A blend of in-office and remote work is becoming the norm, offering flexibility and maintaining team collaboration. Technological Advancements The pandemic has accelerated the adoption of technology in the workplace. From virtual meetings to cloud-based collaboration tools, technology is at the forefront of this new work era. Collaboration Tools : Platforms like Zoom, Slack, and Microsoft Teams have become indispensable for remote teamwork. Artificial Intelligence and Automation : These technologies are streamlining processes and improving efficiency, but also raising questions about job security and skill requirements. Changing Employee Expectations Employees’ priorities and expectations have evolved, leading to a shift in workplace dynamics. Emphasis on Well-being : Workers are now more focused on mental health and work-life balance. Desire for Meaningful Work : There is a growing trend towards seeking work that is fulfilling and aligns with personal values. Challenges and Opportunities This new era of work is not without its challenges. Issues such as digital inequality, maintaining company culture, and managing remote teams effectively are at the forefront. However, these challenges also present opportunities for innovation and growth. Inclusive and Diverse Workplaces : Remote work allows for a more diverse workforce, but it requires deliberate efforts to ensure inclusivity. Sustainable Practices : The reduction in commuting and office usage can contribute to environmental sustainability. Conclusion The post-pandemic future of work is characterized by flexibility, technological integration, and a new set of employee expectations. While navigating this landscape presents challenges, it also offers opportunities for creating more inclusive, efficient, and fulfilling work environments. As we move forward, it is crucial for both employers and employees to adapt and embrace these changes to thrive in the evolving world of work.

9. Space Exploration and Its Importance

Space exploration , a journey into the unknown, the endless cosmos, holds a significant place in the advancement of human knowledge and technology. Over the years, exploring space has not only fueled our imagination but also brought about groundbreaking discoveries and innovations. This essay delves into the importance of space exploration, highlighting its impact on science, technology, and humanity. Unlocking the Mysteries of the Universe Space exploration allows us to understand the cosmos beyond our planet. Through missions like the Hubble Space Telescope and the Mars rovers, we have gained invaluable insights into the formation of galaxies, the lifecycle of stars, and the possibility of life on other planets. These discoveries not only satisfy our natural curiosity but also enhance our understanding of Earth’s place in the universe. Advancing Scientific Knowledge and Innovation The pursuit of space exploration has led to significant technological advancements. Innovations developed for space missions often find applications on Earth. For instance, satellite technology, essential for GPS and weather forecasting, was born out of space research. Similarly, advancements in materials science, robotics, and computer technology can all trace their roots back to space exploration. Inspiring Future Generations Space exploration stands as a testament to human ingenuity and perseverance. It inspires young minds to pursue careers in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM). The achievements of astronauts and the allure of exploring the unknown ignite the imagination of students, encouraging them to dream big and push the boundaries of what is possible. Fostering International Collaboration Space missions often require global cooperation, uniting countries in a common goal. International space stations and joint missions demonstrate how collaboration can transcend geopolitical boundaries, fostering peace and mutual understanding among nations. This cooperation in space exploration serves as a model for addressing other global challenges. Preparing for Future Challenges Understanding celestial phenomena like asteroids and solar flares is crucial for protecting Earth. Space exploration equips us with the knowledge and tools to predict and mitigate potential threats from space. Moreover, exploring celestial bodies like Mars or the Moon could pave the way for future colonization, ensuring the long-term survival of humanity. Economic Benefits Investing in space exploration has significant economic returns. It stimulates industries related to aerospace, engineering, and research, creating jobs and boosting economic growth. The technology developed often leads to new products and services, further enhancing economic development. Conclusion Space exploration is not just about reaching new frontiers but about the benefits it brings to life on Earth. It enriches our understanding of the universe, drives technological innovation, inspires future generations, fosters international cooperation, prepares us for future challenges, and stimulates economic growth. The journey into space, therefore, is not an optional pursuit but a necessary endeavor for the advancement and well-being of humanity.

10. Cultural Heritage and Its Preservation

Cultural heritage encompasses the traditions, values, and historical sites that are inherited from past generations. It is a reflection of a community’s identity and plays a crucial role in shaping the future. This essay explores the significance of cultural heritage and the importance of its preservation. The Essence of Cultural Heritage Cultural heritage is not just about historical artifacts and monuments. It includes intangible aspects like folklore, music, language, and rituals. These elements provide a sense of belonging and continuity in a rapidly changing world. For instance, traditional festivals and ceremonies are more than just events; they are the carriers of stories, beliefs, and customs. Threats to Cultural Heritage Cultural heritage faces numerous threats, including urbanization, environmental degradation, and globalization. Urban development often leads to the destruction of historical sites. Pollution can damage irreplaceable artifacts, and the global spread of a uniform culture threatens the uniqueness of local customs and traditions. Conflict and war also pose significant risks to cultural heritage, as seen in the destruction of historical sites in various parts of the world. Importance of Preservation Preserving cultural heritage is essential for maintaining community identity and fostering an understanding of our history. It aids in the retention of cultural diversity in a globalized world. For example, preserving indigenous languages helps maintain unique worldviews and knowledge systems. Methods of Preservation Digital Preservation: Technological advancements enable the digital preservation of cultural artifacts. Digitizing documents, artworks, and music ensures their longevity and accessibility to future generations. Legal Protections: Implementing laws to protect cultural heritage sites and practices is crucial. These laws can prevent unauthorized alterations to historical sites and safeguard intangible cultural elements. Community Engagement: Involving local communities in preservation efforts ensures that practices and sites are maintained in a culturally respectful and sustainable manner. Education and Awareness: Educating the public about the value of cultural heritage can foster a sense of responsibility towards preservation. School curricula that include local history and cultural studies can inspire younger generations to appreciate and preserve their cultural heritage. Conclusion Cultural heritage is a vital link to our past and a gift to our future. Its preservation requires collaborative efforts between governments, communities, and individuals. By valuing and protecting our cultural heritage, we ensure that the richness of our past continues to enlighten our present and guide our future.

Table of contents

Essay 1: sharing an identity or background through a montage, essay 2: overcoming a challenge, a sports injury narrative, essay 3: showing the influence of an important person or thing, other interesting articles, frequently asked questions about college application essays.

This essay uses a montage structure to show snapshots of a student’s identity and background. The writer builds her essay around the theme of the five senses, sharing memories she associates with sight, sound, smell, touch, and taste.

In the weak rough draft, there is little connection between the individual anecdotes, and they do not robustly demonstrate the student’s qualities.

In the final version, the student uses an extended metaphor of a museum to create a strong connection among her stories, each showcasing a different part of her identity. She draws a specific personal insight from each memory and uses the stories to demonstrate her qualities and values.

How My Five Senses Record My Life

Throughout my life, I have kept a record of my life’s journey with my five senses. This collection of memories matters a great deal because I experience life every day through the lens of my identity.

“Chinese! Japanese!”

My classmate pulls one eye up and the other down.

“Look what my parents did to me!”

No matter how many times he repeats it, the other kids keep laughing. I focus my almond-shaped eyes on the ground, careful not to attract attention to my discomfort, anger, and shame. How could he say such a mean thing about me? What did I do to him? Joseph’s words would engrave themselves into my memory, making me question my appearance every time I saw my eyes in the mirror.

Soaking in overflowing bubble baths with Andrew Lloyd Webber belting from the boombox.

Listening to “Cell Block Tango” with my grandparents while eating filet mignon at a dine-in show in Ashland.

Singing “The Worst Pies in London” at a Korean karaoke club while laughing hysterically with my brother, who can do an eerily spot-on rendition of Sweeney Todd.

Taking car rides with Mom in the Toyota Sequoia as we compete to hit the high note in “Think of Me” from The Phantom of the Opera . Neither of us stands a chance!

The sweet scent of vegetables, Chinese noodles, and sushi wafts through the room as we sit around the table. My grandma presents a good-smelling mixture of international cuisine for our Thanksgiving feast. My favorite is the Chinese food that she cooks. Only the family prayer stands between me and the chance to indulge in these delicious morsels, comforting me with their familiar savory scents.

I rinse a faded plastic plate decorated by my younger sister at the Waterworks Art Center. I wear yellow rubber gloves to protect my hands at Mom’s insistence, but I can still feel the warm water that offers a bit of comfort as I finish the task at hand. The crusted casserole dish with stubborn remnants from my dad’s five-layer lasagna requires extra effort, so I fill it with Dawn and scalding water, setting it aside to soak. I actually don’t mind this daily chore.

I taste sweat on my upper lip as I fight to continue pedaling on a stationary bike. Ava’s next to me and tells me to go up a level. We’re biking buddies, dieting buddies, and Saturday morning carbo-load buddies. After the bike display hits 30 minutes, we do a five-minute cool down, drink Gatorade, and put our legs up to rest.

My five senses are always gathering new memories of my identity. I’m excited to expand my collection.

Making Sense of My Identity

Welcome to The Rose Arimoto Museum. You are about to enter the “Making Sense of My Identity” collection. Allow me to guide you through select exhibits, carefully curated memories from Rose’s sensory experiences.

First, the Sight Exhibit.

“Chinese! Japanese!”

“Look what my parents did to me!”

No matter how many times he repeats it, the other kids keep laughing. I focus my almond-shaped eyes on the ground, careful not to attract attention as my lip trembles and palms sweat. Joseph couldn’t have known how his words would engrave themselves into my memory, making me question my appearance every time I saw my eyes in the mirror.

Ten years later, these same eyes now fixate on an InDesign layout sheet, searching for grammar errors while my friend Selena proofreads our feature piece on racial discrimination in our hometown. As we’re the school newspaper editors, our journalism teacher Ms. Riley allows us to stay until midnight to meet tomorrow’s deadline. She commends our work ethic, which for me is fueled by writing一my new weapon of choice.

Next, you’ll encounter the Sound Exhibit.

Still, the world is my Broadway as I find my voice on stage.

Just below, enter the Smell Exhibit.

While I help my Pau Pau prepare dinner, she divulges her recipe for cha siu bau, with its soft, pillowy white exterior hiding the fragrant filling of braised barbecue pork inside. The sweet scent of candied yams, fun see , and Spam musubi wafts through the room as we gather around our Thankgsiving feast. After our family prayer, we indulge in these delicious morsels until our bellies say stop. These savory scents of my family’s cultural heritage linger long after I’ve finished the last bite.

Next up, the Touch Exhibit.

I rinse a handmade mug that I had painstakingly molded and painted in ceramics class. I wear yellow rubber gloves to protect my hands at Mom’s insistence, but I can still feel the warm water that offers a bit of comfort as I finish the task at hand. The crusted casserole dish with stubborn remnants from my dad’s five-layer lasagna requires extra effort, so I fill it with Dawn and scalding water, setting it aside to soak. For a few fleeting moments, as I continue my nightly chore, the pressure of my weekend job, tomorrow’s calculus exam, and next week’s track meet are washed away.

Finally, we end with the Taste Exhibit.

My legs fight to keep pace with the stationary bike as the salty taste of sweat seeps into corners of my mouth. Ava challenges me to take it up a level. We always train together一even keeping each other accountable on our strict protein diet of chicken breasts, broccoli, and Muscle Milk. We occasionally splurge on Saturday mornings after interval training, relishing the decadence of everything bagels smeared with raspberry walnut cream cheese. But this is Wednesday, so I push myself. I know that once the digital display hits 30:00, we’ll allow our legs to relax into a five-minute cool down, followed by the fiery tang of Fruit Punch Gatorade to rehydrate.

Thank you for your attention. This completes our tour. I invite you to rejoin us for next fall’s College Experience collection, which will exhibit Rose’s continual search for identity and learning.

  • I’ve crafted an essay introduction containing vivid imagery or an intriguing hook that grabs the reader’s attention.

Prevent plagiarism. Run a free check.

This essay uses a narrative structure to recount how a student overcame a challenge, specifically a sports injury. Since this topic is often overused, the essay requires vivid description, a memorable introduction and conclusion , and interesting insight.

The weak rough draft contains an interesting narrative, insight, and vivid imagery, but it has an overly formal tone that distracts the reader from the story. The student’s use of elaborate vocabulary in every sentence makes the essay sound inauthentic and stilted.

The final essay uses a more natural, conversational tone and chooses words that are vivid and specific without being pretentious. This allows the reader to focus on the narrative and appreciate the student’s unique insight.

One fateful evening some months ago, a defensive linebacker mauled me, his 212 pounds indisputably alighting upon my ankle. Ergo, an abhorrent cracking of calcified tissue. At first light the next day, I awoke cognizant of a new paradigm—one sans football—promulgated by a stabbing sensation that would continue to haunt me every morning of this semester.

It’s been an exceedingly taxing semester not being able to engage in football, but I am nonetheless excelling in school. That twist of fate never would have come to pass if I hadn’t broken my ankle. I still limp down the halls at school, but I’m feeling less maudlin these days. My friends don’t steer clear anymore, and I have a lot more of them. My teachers, emboldened by my newfound interest in learning, continually invite me to learn more and do my best. Football is still on hold, but I feel like I’m finally playing a game that matters.

Five months ago, right after my ill-fated injury, my friends’ demeanor became icy and remote, although I couldn’t fathom why. My teachers, in contrast, beckoned me close and invited me on a new learning journey. But despite their indubitably kind advances, even they recoiled when I drew near.

A few weeks later, I started to change my attitude vis-à-vis my newfound situation and determined to put my energy toward productive ends (i.e., homework). I wasn’t enamored with school. I never had been. Nevertheless, I didn’t abhor it either. I just preferred football.

My true turn of fate came when I started studying more and participating in class. I started to enjoy history class, and I grew interested in reading more. I discovered a volume of poems written by a fellow adventurer on the road of life, and I loved it. I ravenously devoured everything in the writer’s oeuvre .

As the weeks flitted past, I found myself spending my time with a group of people who were quite different from me. They participated in theater and played instruments in marching band. They raised their hands in class when the teacher posed a question. Because of their auspicious influence, I started raising my hand too. I am no longer vapid, and I now have something to say.

I am certain that your school would benefit from my miraculous academic transformation, and I entreat you to consider my application to your fine institution. Accepting me to your university would be an unequivocally righteous decision.

  • I’ve chosen a college essay topic that’s meaningful to me.
  • I’ve respected the essay word count , remaining within 10% of the upper word limit.

As I step out of bed, the pain shoots through my foot and up my leg like it has every morning since “the game.” That night, a defensive linebacker tackled me, his 212 pounds landing decidedly on my ankle. I heard the sound before I felt it. The next morning, I awoke to a new reality—one without football—announced by a stabbing sensation that would continue to haunt me every morning of this semester.

My broken ankle broke my spirit.

My friends steered clear of me as I hobbled down the halls at school. My teachers tried to find the delicate balance between giving me space and offering me help. I was as unsure how to deal with myself as they were.

In time, I figured out how to redirect some of my frustration, anger, and pent-up energy toward my studies. I had never not liked school, but I had never really liked it either. In my mind, football practice was my real-life classroom, where I could learn all I ever needed to know.

Then there was that day in Mrs. Brady’s history class. We sang a ridiculous-sounding mnemonic song to memorize all the Chinese dynasties from Shang to Qing. I mumbled the words at first, but I got caught up in the middle of the laughter and began singing along. Starting that day, I began browsing YouTube videos about history, curious to learn more. I had started learning something new, and, to my surprise, I liked it.

With my afternoons free from burpees and scrimmages, I dared to crack open a few more of my books to see what was in them. That’s when my English poetry book, Paint Me Like I Am , caught my attention. It was full of poems written by students my age from WritersCorps. I couldn’t get enough.

I wasn’t the only one who was taken with the poems. Previously, I’d only been vaguely aware of Christina as one of the weird kids I avoided. Crammed in the margins of her high-top Chuck Taylors were scribbled lines of her own poetry and infinite doodles. Beyond her punk rock persona was a sensitive artist, puppy-lover, and environmental activist that a wide receiver like me would have never noticed before.

With Christina, I started making friends with people who once would have been invisible to me: drama geeks, teachers’ pets, band nerds. Most were college bound but not to play a sport. They were smart and talented, and they cared about people and politics and all sorts of issues that I hadn’t considered before. Strangely, they also seemed to care about me.

I still limp down the halls at school, but I don’t seem to mind as much these days. My friends don’t steer clear anymore, and I have a lot more of them. My teachers, excited by my newfound interest in learning, continually invite me to learn more and do my best. Football is still on hold, but I feel like I’m finally playing a game that matters.

My broken ankle broke my spirit. Then, it broke my ignorance.

Word count: 512

This essay uses a narrative structure to show how a pet positively influenced the student’s values and character.

In the weak draft, the student doesn’t focus on himself, instead delving into too much detail about his dog’s positive traits and his grandma’s illness. The essay’s structure is meandering, with tangents and details that don’t communicate any specific insight.

In the improved version, the student keeps the focus on himself, not his pet. He chooses the most relevant stories to demonstrate specific qualities, and the structure more clearly builds up to an insightful conclusion.

Man’s Best Friend

I desperately wanted a cat. I begged my parents for one, but once again, my sisters overruled me, so we drove up the Thompson Valley Canyon from Loveland to Estes Park to meet our newest family member. My sisters had already hatched their master plan, complete with a Finding Nemo blanket to entice the pups. The blanket was a hit with all of them, except for one—the one who walked over and sat in my lap. That was the day that Francisco became a Villanova.

Maybe I should say he was mine because I got stuck with all the chores. As expected, my dog-loving sisters were nowhere to be found! My mom was “extra” with all the doggy gear. Cisco even had to wear these silly little puppy shoes outside so that when he came back in, he wouldn’t get the carpets dirty. If it was raining, my mother insisted I dress Cisco in a ridiculous yellow raincoat, but, in my opinion, it was an unnecessary source of humiliation for poor Cisco. It didn’t take long for Cisco to decide that his outerwear could be used as toys in a game of Keep Away. As soon as I took off one of his shoes, he would run away with it, hiding under the bed where I couldn’t reach him. But, he seemed to appreciate his ensemble more when we had to walk through snowdrifts to get his job done.

When my abuela was dying from cancer, we went in the middle of the night to see her before she passed. I was sad and scared. But, my dad let me take Cisco in the car, so Cisco cuddled with me and made me feel much better. It’s like he could read my mind. Once we arrived at the hospital, the fluorescent lighting made the entire scene seem unreal, as if I was watching the scene unfold through someone else’s eyes. My grandma lay calmly on her bed, smiling at us even through her last moments of pain. I disliked seeing the tubes and machines hooked up to her. It was unnatural to see her like this一it was so unlike the way I usually saw her beautiful in her flowery dress, whistling a Billie Holiday tune and baking snickerdoodle cookies in the kitchen. The hospital didn’t usually allow dogs, but they made a special exception to respect my grandma’s last wishes that the whole family be together. Cisco remained at the foot of the bed, intently watching abuela with a silence that seemed more effective at communicating comfort and compassion than the rest of us who attempted to offer up words of comfort that just seemed hollow and insincere. It was then that I truly appreciated Cisco’s empathy for others.

As I accompanied my dad to pick up our dry cleaner’s from Ms. Chapman, a family friend asked, “How’s Cisco?” before even asking about my sisters or me. Cisco is the Villanova family mascot, a Goldendoodle better recognized by strangers throughout Loveland than the individual members of my family.

On our summer trip to Boyd Lake State Park, we stayed at the Cottonwood campground for a breathtaking view of the lake. Cisco was allowed to come, but we had to keep him on a leash at all times. After a satisfying meal of fish, our entire family walked along the beach. Cisco and I led the way while my mom and sisters shuffled behind. Cisco always stopped and refused to move, looking back to make sure the others were still following. Once satisfied that everyone was together, he would turn back around and continue prancing with his golden boy curly locks waving in the chilly wind.

On the beach, Cisco “accidentally” got let off his leash and went running maniacally around the sand, unfettered and free. His pure joy as he raced through the sand made me forget about my AP Chem exam or my student council responsibilities. He brings a smile not only to my family members but everyone around him.

Cisco won’t live forever, but without words, he has impressed upon me life lessons of responsibility, compassion, loyalty, and joy. I can’t imagine life without him.

Word count: 701

I quickly figured out that as “the chosen one,” I had been enlisted by Cisco to oversee all aspects of his “business.” I learned to put on Cisco’s doggie shoes to keep the carpet clean before taking him out一no matter the weather. Soon after, Cisco decided that his shoes could be used as toys in a game of Keep Away. As soon as I removed one of his shoes, he would run away with it, hiding under the bed where I couldn’t reach him. But, he seemed to appreciate his footwear more after I’d gear him up and we’d tread through the snow for his daily walks.

One morning, it was 7:15 a.m., and Alejandro was late again to pick me up. “Cisco, you don’t think he overslept again, do you?” Cisco barked, as if saying, “Of course he did!” A text message would never do, so I called his dad, even if it was going to get him in trouble. There was no use in both of us getting another tardy during our first-period class, especially since I was ready on time after taking Cisco for his morning outing. Alejandro was mad at me but not too much. He knew I had helped him out, even if he had to endure his dad’s lecture on punctuality.

Another early morning, I heard my sister yell, “Mom! Where are my good ballet flats? I can’t find them anywhere!” I hesitated and then confessed, “I moved them.” She shrieked at me in disbelief, but I continued, “I put them in your closet, so Cisco wouldn’t chew them up.” More disbelief. However, this time, there was silence instead of shrieking.

Last spring, Cisco and I were fast asleep when the phone rang at midnight. Abuela would not make it through the night after a long year of chemo, but she was in Pueblo, almost three hours away. Sitting next to me for that long car ride on I-25 in pitch-black darkness, Cisco knew exactly what I needed and snuggled right next to me as I petted his coat in a rhythm while tears streamed down my face. The hospital didn’t usually allow dogs, but they made a special exception to respect my grandma’s last wishes that the whole family be together. Cisco remained sitting at the foot of the hospital bed, intently watching abuela with a silence that communicated more comfort than our hollow words. Since then, whenever I sense someone is upset, I sit in silence with them or listen to their words, just like Cisco did.

The other day, one of my friends told me, “You’re a strange one, Josue. You’re not like everybody else but in a good way.” I didn’t know what he meant at first. “You know, you’re super responsible and grown-up. You look out for us instead of yourself. Nobody else does that.” I was a bit surprised because I wasn’t trying to do anything different. I was just being me. But then I realized who had taught me: a fluffy little puppy who I had wished was a cat! I didn’t choose Cisco, but he certainly chose me and, unexpectedly, became my teacher, mentor, and friend.

A standout college essay has several key ingredients:

  • A unique, personally meaningful topic
  • A memorable introduction with vivid imagery or an intriguing hook
  • Specific stories and language that show instead of telling
  • Vulnerability that’s authentic but not aimed at soliciting sympathy
  • Clear writing in an appropriate style and tone
  • A conclusion that offers deep insight or a creative ending

There are no set rules for how to structure a college application essay , but these are two common structures that work:

  • A montage structure, a series of vignettes with a common theme.
  • A narrative structure, a single story that shows your personal growth or how you overcame a challenge.

Avoid the five-paragraph essay structure that you learned in high school.

Though admissions officers are interested in hearing your story, they’re also interested in how you tell it. An exceptionally written essay will differentiate you from other applicants, meaning that admissions officers will spend more time reading it.

You can use literary devices to catch your reader’s attention and enrich your storytelling; however, focus on using just a few devices well, rather than trying to use as many as possible.

Most importantly, your essay should be about you , not another person or thing. An insightful college admissions essay requires deep self-reflection, authenticity, and a balance between confidence and vulnerability.

Your essay shouldn’t be a résumé of your experiences but instead should tell a story that demonstrates your most important values and qualities.

When revising your college essay , first check for big-picture issues regarding message, flow, tone, style , and clarity. Then, focus on eliminating grammar and punctuation errors.

Using information in file1, file2, and file3, write a one-page description of Project Foo. Write it so non-technical people can understand what the project is about and when it's scheduled to be completed.

You're preparing an email to invite customers to attend an upcoming conference and visit your company's booth. Using information in Document Z, write a fun, catchy email inviting our customers to come see us at our booth during next month's conference.

You want to plan a morale event for your team. List 3-5 ideas for group activities in the Seattle area that would be suitable for my team. Include approximate cost and time estimates. 

Ask questions

Find information and get answers quickly, even if you can't remember where the information you need is or how it was shared. Here are some examples:

You need to know what's left in the budget for supplies. How much did we spend on supplies for Project Foo?  How much budget do we have left for Project Foo?

Your team received customer feedback. You want to identify the top things your team should address. Review the feedback we received from customers via email last week. What are the top three issues we should address?

My Most Embarrassing Moment Essay

Everyone experiences some kind of embarrassment in their lives. While some are easier to digest, others hit you hard every time. You may be reminded of it when sitting and without doing anything. Also, you would feel the same way if you encountered a person in a position in which you were embarrassed. These flashbacks cause people to feel embarrassed and blame themselves for things they have done incorrectly or inadequately. People choose not to inform their families, friends, and colleagues about these situations because they are concerned that society’s opinion of them could change in the blink of an eye.

Tips for Writing Your Embarrassing Moments Essay

Everyone has had some embarrassing moments in their life. These kinds of events make us smile or gloom. However, it is not always easy to inform someone, but it is sometimes required to write essays on such moments of your life in your academics. You might feel embarrassed or shy about these moments in your essay. With these tips, you can easily tell the reader about the moment:

Explore the nature of the essay

You will write a personal story essay on your most embarrassing moment. A personal essay is a brief autobiographical narrative that incorporates life events that define you in some way. Such a type of writing requires a creative approach. Hence, it can follow a free essay format. The writer concludes the embarrassing moment essay by analyzing how he or she was influenced by an event and whether or not it changed him or her.

Choose the precise story

“Embarrassing moments in my life” is your narrative. It could be a narrative about your first day on a new team, an unpleasant moment on vacation, failing to complete a writing task, or forgetting the name of a new buddy. Close your eyes and recollect the same scenario that caused you to experience such a type of feeling.

Start with a powerful catch

The reader should be interested in the “My most embarrassing experience” essay from the beginning. Find a catch that will immediately capture the attention of the readers. Additionally, the introduction establishes the tone and reveals the topic of your essay.

Create a framework

Although an essay about something embarrassing moment lacks an obvious layout. However, you should organize your thoughts clearly and precisely. Simply write down what and how you intend to write on a paper. The beginning should contain a catchy phrase and a statement. Then, explain the scenario in the body, followed by an explanation of how it impacted you.

Describe instead of telling

What is the distinction between these two scenarios? You cannot simply write how you felt; you must try to explain what happened in as much detail as possible. The reader has to picture the entire scene and experience what you did.

Write the conclusion

A well-constructed conclusion provides the reader with a sense of satisfaction. Move back to your lead to finish the essay. Repeat what you said to bring the story that transformed you to a finish.

It is important to be honest when writing about an embarrassing moment in your life. Try to focus on the scenario and how it impacted you overall.

The Most Embarrassing Moment in My Life – Essay Sample

Every year, our school hosts a week-long cultural event to celebrate and promote talent while also presenting our country’s rich cultural diversity. Throughout the cultural week, several events are held at night and throughout the day. During the day, the primary events, such as games and public talks, are held in the main square and are open to everyone, including staff and residents of adjacent settlements. During the night, there are real talent showcases featuring music and dances, poetry, and beauty contests. Two of my buddies and I discovered our talent for poetry during last year’s culture week. We had been preparing for this night for a long time and were confident that we had the most magnificent poetic voices and talents. We intended to shake the entire audience with our recitals, which our patron had approved with wonderful compliments. However, as fate would have it, the best-laid plans are not necessarily the most successful. Our well-crafted preparations went wrong when I fell on stage before our presentation.

It was finally the day of our lives, which we had been planning for and awaiting with anxiousness. The school grounds resembled a giant carnival, with individuals costumed in various colors. Soon it was evening, and the event was scheduled to begin at eight o’clock at the auditorium of the school. The auditorium is a large, spherical chamber with three rows of seats and a stage in one corner that rises so that everyone has a prohibited view of what is going on.

We were in the changing room at the back of the auditorium, and I was thinking about how things never go exactly as they should. It was a Friday night, and you can imagine that every student in the school was in the room. I began to get shivers all over my body, and if you looked closely, you could see my heart attempting to escape from my chest underneath my pretty flowery shirt. My companions were no better. The large changing room was a hive of activity as participants dressed in various shades and patterns of crazy costumes worked to get everything while waiting their turn to present their works of art. A knife could be used to cut the tension in the room.

Finally, it was our turn, and I noticed the coordinator waiting at the door, calling us to the stage as planned. My legs suddenly became stationary, as if they were made of lead, and my fellow students dragged me towards the door. To say I was surprised when I first came out would be an understatement. I couldn’t believe it. The abnormally huge room was packed to the overflow, and I couldn’t see a single face, only an ocean of them. A cold shudder rushed through my body, and I remained there fastened, my buddies noticing this drew me in.

Then it was very silent, and you could hear a needle drop; they were waiting for us to start. I missed one step at the top of the stairs and fell face down. Within a second, people were all on me, and there was chaos in the auditorium as some rushed to rescue me, while others panicked and asked what happened. I wished the ground would open up and take me, but the Master of Ceremonies brought everyone to order, apologized, and told us to begin. I was dazed as I sifted through the pieces. I have never felt so embarrassed before.

Though we meticulously plan our days, lives, and events, things do not always happen as planned. The day my friends and I wanted to shine was marked with shame, which we overcame well. This taught me to keep a strong face and smile whenever I found myself in an embarrassing scenario.
