Obviously, when getting an assignment to write an essay, every student feels kind of confusion – where to start, how to write, what topic to choose, and so on.
However, not all is as difficult as it seems at first glance.
And in this article, we’ll take a look on a few tips on writing an analytical essay!
-Once you have chosen the theme of your work, you need to find confirmatory evidence and sources.
Depending on your task, you may only need to work with the main sources (the text or texts you are analyzing) or with the main and secondary sources, such as other books or magazine articles. The task should tell you which types of sources are needed. Good evidence confirms your claim and makes your argument more convincing.
Next – make the “outlines” of your work.
Be sure what time it takes your essay to be read or performed. Despite the fact that some teachers are well versed in the standard “5 paragraphs” (intro, 3 points of the body, conclusion), many teachers and tutors believe that the essays should be more lengthy and learn the theme deeply. So, structure your plan properly.
If you are not entirely sure how all your testimony is relevant to the topic, but if you are well-connected, do not worry! Creating an outline can help you figure out how your argument should evolve.
You can also make a more informal plan that unites your ideas in large groups. From there, you can decide what to say, and when.
Students are also tend to make the following mistake – to choose a big topic and then only allow 3 body paragraphs to discuss this issue . Do not be afraid to spend enough time discussing each detail!
