How To Write An Essay: Write The Right Way
Join 1000's of Authors at StreetArticles Today!

If you are a high school student attending college track courses and applying for various colleges countrywide, you should be intimately familiar with the concept of the essay. Making sure that you heed some simple rules will make yours the most efficient, garnering you the good grade or the acceptance that you are looking for.

Pay careful attention to your essay and do not think that you can just jot anything you please off and be done. Spend some time and plan out what it is that you are trying to say. If you do not have a computer at home, take it to the library so that you can make good use of the spell-check feature. Proofread your essay several times and if possible, have someone look it over as well. To make your essay the best that it can be:

1. Know your topic and the point of your paper. Every good essay begins with a thought or argument called ‘a thesis.’ Make sure that your opening paragraph lays out the purpose of your paper, describes how you will approach this purpose and then end with a clear and succinct thesis statement.

2. Know your grammar, including how to cite sources. If you are writing about something that you might need to perform research for, or if your paper will include quotes from someone else, make sure that you indicate that these words and thoughts are not your own and then give the proper credit for them. Your instructor (or college application) will outline which form of citation is needed, (APA, MLA etc.) Do not attempt to skip over this step or you might find yourself facing the charge of plagiarism.

3. Follow all other guidelines for the assignment. Make sure that the essay uses the proper font, line spacing, and length called for.

4. Do not try to write above yourself. While it is true that you want to use language fitting the essay, you do not want to try to use large words that you really do not understand. Doing so will make your essay confusing, and hard to read which will lower your grade.

5. Neatness counts. Do not present your essay with wrinkled, crinkled and smudged paper. If at all possible, use a folder or binder to keep it neat and clean, and make sure that you have done a thorough spell check.

Writing an essay should not be an insurmountable chore. For most topics, an essay can be a good way to voice your opinion and get your point across.
