A Step-by-Step Guide Presented by www.kibin.com

Amazing Introduction (Hook) “English teachers across the nation have been teaching students to become ineffective writers.” This hook makes a bold statement that will encourage readers to continue reading… especially your English teacher! & Thesis Statement “Teachers should stop teaching students to write 5-paragraph essays.” More power can be added to your thesis by creating a statement about what should or shouldn’t be done.

1st Argument & Supports ”The 5-paragraph essay is too basic.” Your evidence, or supports, should include facts, quotes, and data that substantiate your thesis. This is a great place to include quotes directly from your research sources.

2nd Argument & Supports ”There are myriad other ways to write essays, many of which are more thought-provoking and creative than the 5-paragraph essay.” Remember, for the 5-paragraph essay structure, you typically need to come up with three supports for each of your three arguments.

3rd Argument & Supports “The 5-paragraph essay does not allow for analytical thinking; rather, it confines students to following a restrictive formula.” Here’s an example support for this argument: According to an article in Education Week, “There is a consensus among college writing professors that ‘students are coming [to college] prepared to do fiveparagraph themes and arguments but [are] radically unprepared in thinking analytically.’ ”

Conclusion: Thesis Restated “The 5-paragraph essay is an outdated and useless writing tool that should be phased out of the classroom.” In a traditional 5-paragraph essay, the first step in writing your conclusion is to restate your thesis using different words. & Broader Significance “Teachers should teach other methods of essay writing that help students stay organized and also allow them to think analytically.” To close out the paper, open a discussion on the broader significance of this argument.
