How to Write an Effective Essay

I was just reading an article I didn’t really like it the writing was  but I don’t think it was effective what that means is to me they didn’t really get across the idea that they wanted to I kind of understood but it wasn’t great today what I want to show you is how they write effectively to make sure when you finish writing people understand what you’re saying  by the way this kind of writing is great for university high school any kind of writing even sales in English alright well.

Let’s go to the morning  first things first if you want to write something about something specific one of the best ways of doing it is to want what’s that you say that’s a question mark.

That’s right you need to ask a question by asking a question what it does it gives you a clear picture in your head of what you want to know so what’s better blondes or brunettes sorry let me say this what’s better love or money you ask a question by asking a question there has to be an answer that answers actually our starting point  so we start effective writing by asking a question that we want answered because what we’re thinking is the reader wants the answer to this question so you’re thinking what does my reader want why don’t I ask a question and then when I want to that question. I can write about that for my reader it helps us get very specific in our focus it’s sort of like focusing on our target  so let’s look at the answer so the first part we want to do is number one ask you a question let’s do this larger it might be right for you to see  so let’s write that out again all right number one ask a question. That’s the first thing we do we did that right there which is better love for money what’s the answer to this question well the answer the question we have a specific word in English  so when we figure out the answer what we think the answer to the question is let me say that I have been a little slower when we figure out what we think the answer is we write that down but it’s not just an answer in English it becomes our thesis our thesis is the thing we’re going to focus on that’s why we ask the question.

So then we’re going to do step number two our thesis it’s the answer to the question now funny thing about thesis is it has to be strong you can’t say maybe maybe yes maybe no that’s not a thesis they call that weak. A thesis has to be strong so the person is very clear and you’re very clear and this is what it helps for effective writing because you know exactly what you want to talk about but your reader also knows exactly what you want to talk about so let’s put that up here a thesis has to be strongly said or another word for that is stated  take a look cool so we’ve got two things so far question and thisis not even say what I’m going to do with that well now we can actually start our essay this was just the first part it’s not like to the essays to get you ready to write so let’s write the essays shall we now like any good book or any good story you need an introduction I mean you can say your thesis but you know what it’s better I give you an action I’ll give you a little play if you watch this you’ll figure out why you need an introduction.

All right but the third step is introduction and then their introduction what we’re going to do is we’re going to add our thesis ok to some nice ways to introduce it so this is plus thesis ok now the people reading it should be able to identify your thesis now let me let me give you an example of why it’s important to have an introduction to not just use your thesis you’re ready I’m going to go to a bar and I’m going to meet a girl ok one second ok there am hi my name is James can I kiss you oh that’s a bad introduction that’s trying to use just your thesis to get people to read your paper it doesn’t work very well ok so why don’t we do the next one let’s try this introduction. Hi I’m James what’s your name that’s a very pretty name I’m from Canada and I teach English would you like to learn more about English and how I teach it oh come with me look at your drink see that worked that’s a good introduction ok so we need an introduction to go for the thesis we put our thesis inside of the introduction and we make it pleasant for people to want to read more we make it interesting ok so this is the first three parts now we have to do another two parts  now that would be number four the body the body is very important because I tell you my a thesis that doesn’t make it true it just means I believe it’s true it’s like me say to you I’m a billionaire first thing you’re gonna say is proven show me the money and guess where that movie’s room no is where that lion’s from is from a movie  show me the money you’re going to want proof now this is one of the best ways to do proof when we look at our thesis now we’re talking a basic essay not a huge one what we do is to have three reasons that make that thesis true  there we’ll call those three reasons the main reasons so when we do proof we’re actually to put it in a special place called the body of the essay now one of the things we wanted to body s today is a main reason now you’ve got your main reasons but that doesn’t mean it’s true what we need to do is find other things that supports the main reason  we call these now if you remember rightly when I said in the body we should have three to support the thesis it’s also a good idea attend at least three supporting ideas to make the main reason true.

So that number three is very important here for us  we want to have three main reasons and then three supporting ideas if you’re doing the math one two three two times three that’s about nine different sentences or ideas we want in the paper now finally we’ll come to our conclusion how do we get to the conclusion well let’s look at it we had a thesis an idea what we started with a question we said this is the true answer to the question right then after that we said  that true answer will be our thesis we said our thesis we hit it into the introduction remember I got the girl yeah remember that  now we had to prove it’s true because no one just believes things you say we came up with three main ideas we supported each main idea with three supporting ideas now we come to the conclusion the conclusion is where we turn around say with all of this proof or evidence that we have I can say this is true what we do is we go back to the three main ideas and we say because this idea this idea and this idea are true my conclusion must be true you become a lawyer or a liar but that’s another lesson all together but we want to prove it  so we do our conclusion  and our conclusion is based on the proof here all right now that’s it for our lesson I hope by the end the good thesis that this is an effective essay for you I hope I proved my case and in conclusion.
