Writing a great essay (3)

Posted on: June 23, 2010

So…we’re writing a great essay!      YES!!!!

We’re talking about planning the essay before you start writing.

In the last post, I promised you a mindmap. Here it is:

This mindmap shows ideas for an essay comparing two types of education: public school and home school. This mindmap shows just a few of many ideas about this topic.

Click on the blue box and you will see the map in full size.

Please just learn one thing about planning from this mindmap: It is important to plan fully.

Many students write one word or two when planning an essay. This doesn’t work because the idea of a plan is to get all your ideas on paper so that your brain isn’t running from idea to idea.

In order to think clearly and to organize your ideas, plan well.
