Example of writing process studied in module 1.
Step 1: Select Your Topic
Use the three tips you learned in Selecting a Workable Topic to develop a topic for your descriptive essay.
Step 2: Brainstorm Your Topic
1. Brainstorm your topic.
Start with the topic you developed in your last assignment. Brainstorm some ideas surrounding that topic using what you learned in Brainstorming Your Topic.
2. Use the clustering technique.
Use the system of clustering to generate specific ideas and information pertaining to your topic or subject.
Step 2.1: Outline Your Topic
Use what you learned in Outlining as well as your previous practice assignments to build an outline for your topic.
Step 2.2: Write Your Research Questions
Write four research questions that are applicable to your topic. It is usually helpful to create questions that allow for both the affirmative and negative positions on an issue or topic.
Step 3: Write Your Thesis Statement
Using what you learned about the characteristics of a good thesis statement, write a thesis statement for your topic.
Step 4: Write Your Introduction
Using what you learned about thesis statements and introductions, write an introduction for your paper. Review the characteristics of a good introduction before you begin.
Step 5: Write Your Content
Using what you learned about writing the body of a paper, write the content for your essay. Remember to review the module to verify you are following the best practices for writing content.
Step 6: Write Your Conclusion
Using the information you learned, write a conclusion paragraph for your paper.
