Difficulty & Intensity Guide

This comprehensive guide will help you find which series is right for you

Difficulty Levels

Difficulty refers to the level of skill and technique called for in a class.

Beginner

Beginner series are most approachable for those who have little or no exposure to yoga. These series typically offer more modifications and detailed instructions on fundamental poses.

These series are perfect for someone who is looking to start a yoga practice and explore the benefits of yoga. These classes can help you to learn the basics of starting a practice, foundational poses, understanding breathwork, and learning to focus on the moment every time you come to the mat.

Moderate

Moderate classes may include moderate pose modifications and less instruction than found in Beginner classes.

These series are perfect for someone who has previous exposure to yoga, whether at home or in a studio setting, and has a basic understanding of foundational poses and class structure. They are the perfect opportunity to grow your practice, maintain consistency, and enjoy classes designed to grow your pose library and increase your strength.

Intermediate

Intermediate series tend to be more detailed tutorials on how to achieve more challenging asanas and end-goal poses. These classes help build strength and body awareness by exploring transitions, trying inversions, and mastering breath and movement.

These series are perfect for someone who has a consistent yoga practice and has established confidence in poses, progressions, and general yoga knowledge. They help students express creativity and find freedom in exploring flows and movement. There is less cueing than in Beginner or Moderate content.

Advanced

Advanced classes are the perfect opportunity to explore your potential beyond what is found in typical in-studio classes. You’ll find your edge while exploring a greater level of strength, control, and skill work.

These series are ideal for students who have high body awareness, are comfortable with most poses, and have confidence in their strength and breath work. These classes allow opportunities to practice inversions, floating, or advanced transitions.

Intensity Levels

Intensity is not the same as difficulty; it refers to the amount of exertion that a workout requires.

Level 1

This intensity level is ideal for students seeking slow-paced, restorative, or breath-focused content.
Students often leave their mat feeling relaxed and at-ease.

Created with Sketch.








Level 2

Series within this level vary from energizing flows to entry-level strength content.
They typically move at a slow-to-moderate pace. Students can expect to feel comfortably challenged and explore a wider
range of movement.

Created with Sketch.








Level 3

Get sweaty with flow and strength content designed to increase your breathing and challenge your limits.
Level 3 intensity classes will increase the pace of your movement and test your endurance.

Created with Sketch.








Level 4

Push your edge in classes designed to make you sweat. This intensity level moves at a fast pace to increase your heart rate and
accelerate your breathing. Work hard to discover untapped levels of strength and endurance.

About the Series

Care for your mental, emotional, and physical health during your pregnancy and beyond. This series is designed to empower and support your changing body with prenatal-specific yoga flows, meditations, lectures, and pranayama.

While many prenatal programs bypass the importance and power of the mind, this series embodies the whole journey of pregnancy. It speaks to the physical and physiological changes that occur and empowers you to feel confident while taking care of yourself during pregnancy. Modifications are provided for your practice as you evolve throughout your pregnancy journey.

It is so important to also tend to your mental wellbeing during your pregnancy. The included meditations will help you stay calm and grounded while on the rollercoaster of your pregnancy while providing you with time to connect to the being that is developing inside your belly.

This series includes:

• Two yoga flows filled with prenatal-specific modifications for each trimester.

• One strength training practice designed to maintain strength, stability, and power.

• Two lectures to inform and empower with information about the psychological, physiological, and cardiovascular changes that are taking place in your body.

• Four meditation practices that encourage centeredness during times of emotional, physical, and hormonal changes. It also allows for special quiet time with your growing baby.

• One pranayama practice to help harness the power of breath during labor and delivery.

• One myofascial release class to relieve physical discomfort and tension.

Both mind and body will reap the amazing benefits of exercise, movement, meditation, and self-care, helping to prepare you for the arrival of your bundle of joy.

Benefits of Renewable Energy Use

Wind turbines and solar panels are an increasingly common sight. But why? What are the benefits of renewable energies—and how do they improve our health, environment, and economy?

This page explores the many positive impacts of clean energy, including the benefits of wind ,  solar ,  geothermal ,  hydroelectric , and  biomass . For more information on their negative impacts—including effective solutions to avoid, minimize, or mitigate—see our page on  The Environmental Impacts of Renewable Energy Technologies .

Less global warming

Human activity is overloading our atmosphere with carbon dioxide and other  global warming emissions . These gases act like a blanket, trapping heat. The result is a web of  significant and harmful impacts , from stronger, more frequent storms, to drought, sea level rise, and extinction.

In the United States, about 29 percent of global warming emissions come from our electricity sector. Most of those emissions come from fossil fuels like coal and natural gas [ 1 ,  2 ].

What is CO2e?

Carbon dioxide (CO2) is the most prevalent greenhouse gas, but other air pollutants—such as methane—also cause global warming. Different energy sources produce different amounts of these pollutants. To make comparisons easier, we use a carbon dioxide equivalent, or CO2e—the amount of carbon dioxide required to produce an equivalent amount of warming.

In contrast, most renewable energy sources produce little to no global warming emissions. Even when including “life cycle” emissions of clean energy (ie, the emissions from each stage of a technology’s life—manufacturing, installation, operation, decommissioning), the global warming emissions associated with renewable energy are minimal [ 3 ].

The comparison becomes clear when you look at the numbers. Burning natural gas for electricity releases between 0.6 and 2 pounds of carbon dioxide equivalent per kilowatt-hour (CO2E/kWh); coal emits between 1.4 and 3.6 pounds of CO2E/kWh.  Wind , on the other hand, is responsible for only 0.02 to 0.04 pounds of CO2E/kWh on a life-cycle basis;  solar  0.07 to 0.2;  geothermal  0.1 to 0.2; and  hydroelectric  between 0.1 and 0.5.

Renewable electricity generation from  biomass  can have a wide range of global warming emissions depending on the resource and whether or not it is sustainably sourced and harvested.

Different sources of energy produce different amounts of heat-trapping gases. As shown in this chart, renewable energies tend to have much lower emissions than other sources, such as natural gas or coal.
Source: IPCC, 2011 Special Report on Renewable Energy Sources and Climate Change Mitigation (Chapter 9).

Increasing the supply of renewable energy would allow us to replace carbon-intensive energy sources and significantly reduce US global warming emissions.

For example, a 2009 UCS analysis found that a 25 percent by 2025 national renewable electricity standard would lower power plant CO2 emissions 277 million metric tons annually by 2025—the equivalent of the annual output from 70 typical (600 MW) new coal plants [ 4 ].

In addition, a ground-breaking study by the US Department of Energy’s National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL) explored the feasibility of generating 80 percent of the country’s electricity from renewable sources by 2050. They found that renewable energy could help reduce the electricity sector’s emissions by approximately 81 percent [ 5 ].

Improved public health

The air and water pollution emitted by coal and natural gas plants is linked with breathing problems, neurological damage, heart attacks, cancer, premature death, and a host of other serious problems. The pollution affects everyone: one Harvard University study estimated the life cycle costs and public health effects of coal to be an estimated $74.6 billion every year. That’s equivalent to 4.36 cents per kilowatt-hour of electricity produced—about one-third of the average electricity rate for a typical US home [ 6 ].

Most of these negative health impacts come from air and water pollution that clean energy technologies simply don’t produce. Wind, solar, and hydroelectric systems generate electricity with no associated air pollution emissions. Geothermal and  biomass   systems emit some air pollutants, though total air emissions are generally much lower than those of coal- and natural gas-fired power plants.

In addition, wind and solar energy require essentially no water to operate and thus do not pollute water resources or strain supplies by competing with agriculture, drinking water, or other important water needs. In contrast, fossil fuels can have a  significant impact on water resources : both coal mining and natural gas drilling can pollute sources of drinking water, and all thermal power plants, including those powered by coal, gas, and oil, withdraw and consume water for cooling. 

Biomass and geothermal power plants, like coal- and natural gas-fired power plants, may require water for cooling. Hydroelectric power plants can disrupt river ecosystems both upstream and downstream from the dam. However, NREL’s 80-percent-by-2050 renewable energy study, which included biomass and geothermal, found that total water consumption and withdrawal would decrease significantly in a future with high renewables [ 7 ].

Inexhaustible energy

Strong winds, sunny skies, abundant plant matter, heat from the earth, and fast-moving water can each provide a vast and constantly replenished supply of energy. A relatively small fraction of US electricity currently comes from these sources, but that could change: studies have repeatedly shown that renewable energy can provide a significant share of future electricity needs, even after accounting for potential constraints [ 9 ].

In fact, a major government-sponsored study found that clean energy could contribute somewhere between three and 80 times its 2013 levels, depending on assumptions [8]. And the previously mentioned NREL study found that renewable energy could comfortably provide up to 80 percent of US electricity by 2050.

Jobs and other economic benefits

Compared with fossil fuel technologies, which are typically mechanized and capital intensive, the renewable energy industry is more labor intensive. Solar panels need humans to install them; wind farms need technicians for maintenance.

This means that, on average, more jobs are created for each unit of electricity generated from renewable sources than from fossil fuels.

Renewable energy already supports thousands of jobs in the United States. In 2016, the wind energy industry directly employed over 100,000 full-time-equivalent employees in a variety of capacities, including manufacturing, project development, construction and turbine installation, operations and maintenance, transportation and logistics, and financial, legal, and consulting services [ 10 ]. More than 500 factories in the United States manufacture parts for wind turbines, and wind power project installations in 2016 alone represented $13.0 billion in investments [ 11 ].

Other renewable energy technologies employ even more workers. In 2016, the solar industry employed more than 260,000 people, including jobs in solar installation, manufacturing, and sales, a 25% increase over 2015 [ 12 ]. The hydroelectric power industry employed approximately 66,000 people in 2017 [ 13 ]; the geothermal industry employed 5,800 people [ 14] .

Increased support for renewable energy could create even more jobs. The 2009 Union of Concerned Scientists study of a 25-percent-by-2025 renewable energy standard found that such a policy would create more than three times as many jobs (more than 200,000) as producing an equivalent amount of electricity from fossil fuels [ 15 ]. 

In contrast, the entire coal industry employed 160,000 people in 2016 [ 26 ].

In addition to the jobs directly created in the renewable energy industry, growth in clean energy can create positive economic “ripple” effects. For example, industries in the renewable energy supply chain will benefit, and unrelated local businesses will benefit from increased household and business incomes [ 16 ].

Local governments also benefit from clean energy, most often in the form of property and income taxes and other payments from renewable energy project owners. Owners of the land on which wind projects are built often receive lease payments ranging from $3,000 to $6,000 per megawatt of installed capacity, as well as payments for power line easements and road rights-of-way. They may also earn royalties based on the project’s annual revenues. Farmers and rural landowners can generate new sources of supplemental income by producing feedstocks for biomass power facilities.

UCS analysis found that a 25-by-2025 national renewable electricity standard would stimulate $263.4 billion in new capital investment for renewable energy technologies, $13.5 billion in new landowner income from? biomass production and/or wind land lease payments, and $11.5 billion in new property tax revenue for local communities [ 17 ].

Stable energy prices

Renewable energy is providing affordable electricity across the country right now, and can help stabilize energy prices in the future.

Although renewable facilities require upfront investments to build, they can then operate at very low cost (for most clean energy technologies, the “fuel” is free). As a result, renewable energy prices can be very stable over time.

Moreover, the costs of renewable energy technologies have declined steadily, and are projected to drop even more. For example, the average price to install solar dropped more than 70 percent between 2010 and 2017 [ 20 ]. The cost of generating electricity from wind dropped 66 percent between 2009 and 2016 [ 21 ]. Costs will likely decline even further as markets mature and companies increasingly take advantage of economies of scale.

In contrast, fossil fuel prices can vary dramatically and are prone to substantial price swings. For example, there was a rapid increase in US coal prices due to rising global demand before 2008, then a rapid fall after 2008 when global demands declined [ 23 ]. Likewise, natural gas prices have fluctuated greatly since 2000 [ 25 ].

Source: Energy Information Administration (EIA). 2013. Coal news and markets report .

Using more renewable energy can lower the prices of and demand for natural gas and coal by increasing competition and diversifying our energy supplies. And an increased reliance on renewable energy can help protect consumers when fossil fuel prices spike. 

Reliability and resilience

 Wind and solar are less prone to large-scale failure because they are distributed and modular. Distributed systems are spread out over a large geographical area, so a severe weather event in one location will not cut off power to an entire region. Modular systems are composed of numerous individual wind turbines or solar arrays. Even if some of the equipment in the system is damaged, the rest can typically continue to operate.

For example, Hurricane Sandy damaged fossil fuel-dominated electric generation and distribution systems in New York and New Jersey and left millions of people without power. In contrast, renewable energy projects in the Northeast weathered Hurricane Sandy with minimal damage or disruption [ 25 ]. 

Water scarcity is another risk for non-renewable power plants. Coal, nuclear, and many natural gas plants depend on having sufficient water for cooling, which means that severe droughts and heat waves can put electricity generation at risk. Wind and solar photovoltaic systems do not require water to generate electricity and can operate reliably in conditions that may otherwise require closing a fossil fuel-powered plant. (For more information, see  How it Works: Water for Electricity .)  

The risk of disruptive events will also increase in the future as droughts, heat waves, more intense storms, and increasingly severe wildfires become more frequent due to global warming—increasing the need for resilient, clean technologies.

    IELTS General Writing Task 2 — Practice Draft

    Many newspapers and magazines feature stories about the private lives of famous people. We know what they eat, where they buy their clothes and who they love. We also often see pictures of them in private situations. Is it appropriate for a magazine or newspaper to give this kind of private information about people?

    A One-Sided Opinion Essay
    with a Funnel Approach Introduction


    Never before has society been so obsessed with famous people as these days. In the past, celebrities were able to separate their private lives from their public personas with some degree of success. Yet today, seemingly due to the omnipresence of the mass media joined to the ubiquity of the Internet, celebrities reach a whole new level of popularity. Such prestige, however, does not come without a price.

    News about famous people’s private lives hit the headlines almost every day. From exotic diets to gossip about love affairs, celebrities have their lives scrutinized by the mass media all the time. Not rarely, famous people struggle to put up with paparazzi, being harassed even in gloomy situations such as a funeral of a beloved one, for example.

    Ironically, what seems to fuel such obsession is precisely the thermometer of the fame; popularity. In other words, the greater the fame is the more news about their private lives will be sought after. It seems fundamental to point this out because, given the very nature of the market, to boost profit, it seems natural that the mass media, playing the market role, provides this sort of product. After all, where there is demand there will be supply, it is said.

    Hence, that the reason why the mass media features such stories stems from the natural dynamic of capitalism appears to be clear. Yet, to me, the intriguing challenge is to figure out why do people are so keen on this kind of news in the first place? Perhaps we should consider fostering an honest reflection on whether such cult of celebrity is still suitable for the society we aspire to.

    “Way to tell it like it is, Ivy Coach” – The Dartmouth

    Famous College Essay


    Famous University Essay, Famous Admissions Essay, Famous NYU Essay

    NYU received what would become the most famous college essay many years ago.

    We’ve never written about this essay on our college admissions blog before. But we figured…why not? If one were to ask us what is the most famous college essay ever written, we know the answer hands down. It’s this NYU applicant’s essay from many, many years ago. To this day, it remains well known in the highly selective college admissions community. But, today, we’d like to discuss it. Look, it’s extremely well written. Rarely — and we mean rarely — have we seen students with this kind of writing ability. Did we say rarely yet? Because we do mean rarely. And it’s quite funny. The guy can make 30-minute brownies in 20 minutes.

    And while it was a great essay at the time and the writer definitely has a sense of humor, we strongly discourage students from writing essays in this style. For one, every single admissions officer — from the ones who are first out of college to the veterans of the departments — will know from where you’re taking inspiration. Also, this essay is kind of mocking the entire college admissions process. The writer is essentially saying that he has done all of these amazing things in life and he hasn’t even yet gone to college. Sure, it’s written tongue in cheek but, at the end of the day, the essay says little about the actual applicant. Because, presumably, little or none of it is true. That’s the whole point.

    Look, this was a great essay all of those years ago. There’s a reason it’s a famous essay. What we’re saying is don’t even think about taking inspiration from it or writing anything stylistically similar because that is not a good idea for you. Here’s the essay:

    “I am a dynamic figure, often seen scaling walls and crushing ice. I have been known to remodel train stations on my lunch breaks, making them more efficient in the area of heat retention. I translate ethnic slurs for Cuban refugees, I write award-winning operas, I manage time efficiently.

    Occasionally, I tread water for three days in a row. I woo women with my sensuous and godlike trombone playing. I can pilot bicycles up severe inclines with unflagging speed, and I cook 30-minute brownies in 20 minutes.

    I am an expert in stucco, a veteran in love, and an outlaw in Peru.

    Using only a hoe and a large glass of water, I once single-handedly defended a small village in the Amazon basin from a horde of ferocious army ants. I play bluegrass cello. I was scouted by the Mets. I am the subject of numerous documentaries. When I’m bored, I build large suspension bridges in my yard. I enjoy urban hang gliding. On Wednesdays, after school, I repair electrical appliances free of charge.

    I am an abstract artist, a concrete analyst, and a ruthless bookie. Critics worldwide swoon over my original line of corduroy evening wear. I don’t perspire.

    I am a private citizen, yet I receive fan mail. I have been caller number nine and have won the weekend passes. Last summer I toured New Jersey with a traveling centrifugal force demonstration. I bat .400. My deft floral arrangements have earned me fame in international botany circles. Children trust me.

    I can hurl tennis rackets at small moving objects with deadly accuracy. I once read Paradise lost, Moby Dick, and David Copperfield in one day and still had time to refurbish an entire dining room that evening. I know the exact location of every food item in the supermarket. I have performed several covert operations for the CIA. I sleep once a week; when I do sleep, I sleep in a chair. While on vacation in Canada, I successfully negotiated with a group of terrorists who had seized a small bakery. The laws of physics do not apply to me.

    I balance, I weave, I dodge, I frolic, and my bills are all paid. On weekends, to let off steam, I participate in full-contact origami. Years ago I discovered the meaning of life, but forgot to write it down. I have made extraordinary four course meals using only a mouli and a toaster oven.

            That is not relevant to this student’s essay. Who said he applied (decades ago) as a creative writing major?

      The essay actually does say a lot about him. It shows he is witty, cynical, funny, and creative. It also shows that he is brave, because he is not afraid to break the conventions of a typical college essay. The rest of his application would have said what clubs he was in, his grades, and the rest of the things most people talk about in their essays. I agree that it would likely be obvious if a student were to emulate this style exactly, but claiming the essay “says little about the applicant” is rather naive.

      This is a funny read, very clever and just entertaining! If you asked a college coach or anyone else if you should submit this essay, they would say no!!! Maybe he had an equally amazing gpa and perfect sat scores etc….and he had room to take a risk!

    Compare and contrast essays identify the similarities and highlight the differences between two topics. When writing compare and contrast essays, it’s best to select topics, pre-write by developing categories, develop a thesis and organize the essay. With compare and contrast essays, point-by-point essays are guided by category while block essays are guided by topic.

    compare contrast essay point by point block Venn diagram

    Let’s talk about compare/contrast essays. Now, I find these to be some of the most difficult types of essays to write because it’s hard to know where you’re going and exactly how you’re going to tell the similarities and differences between two things. So a couple of vocabulary things to straighten out first. When you’re given an essay, if you’re asked just to compare, all they want to know is the similarities, so compare means how they’re the same. If you’re asked to contrast two things, then you’re being asked to tell people how they are different. So just be aware, when you’re doing compare/contrast, sometimes you may be asked to compare or contrast, sometimes you may be asked to do both. So you’ve got to really be aware of your prompt there.
    Here are the steps that I tend to go through when I’m working compare/contrast; the first thing that I do is select my topics and make sure I understand the task. So that is selecting which two things I’m going to use in my essay and then understanding am I being asked to compare, contrast or do both of those. So that’s the first important step. And then the next step is to pre-write and develop categories. So obviously if we’re talking about how things are similar and different, we are going to start categorizing the ways that they are similar or different. For instance, if we are comparing pizzas, we might say crust is one category that we’re going to look at, sauce might be another and the variety of toppings might be another. So you can start thinking about what those categories should be.
    My two favorite modes of pre-writing for compare/contrast is a Venn diagram and you may remember that from math class, the two circles that run together, you can put topic one here, topic two here and then how they’re different in here and how they’re similar in the middle, so that’s one. I’m also a chart person so I don’t mind chart especially if I’ve got a lot of categories and my chart might look something like this and I will have a row for each particular category. So crust, sauce and then I divide it down the middle and I seal those in. So it depends on how you like to look at things, I tend to be a little bit more organized so I like the chart the best but after I’ve got all these ideas down here, now I want to develop a thesis. And this is really the critical part in compare/contrast because it’s really easy to say, "Well, Monical’s pizza has thin crust and Giodonalds pizza has thick crust, but you want to make sure that you’re answering the ‘so what?’ question. So you’ve got to come to some sort of conclusion, it’s not just about saying how things are similar or how they are different but why is that important. So maybe Giodonalds is a better place to entertain people or to take people from out of town because you can get thin crust pizza anywhere. Whatever it is you’ve got to come to that conclusion so you can insert it in your thesis and then after that you’ve got to think about how you’re going to organize your essay. And let’s take a look at the two different ways that you can organize a compare/contrast essay.
    Now, the first one is point by point. And essentially what that means is it’s going to be guided by those categories that you created. So you’re going to have multiple sections of your paper; one for each of the categories that you have and in each section you’re going to use examples from both topics. So you might talk about crust here, and in this paragraph or set of paragraphs you’re going to talk about the crust at Giodonalds and you’re going to talk about the crust at Monical’s. And then you move on to the next category and so on and so forth until you’ve talked about all your categories and given all your examples. The important thing to remember if you choose point by point is that you’re going to want to make sure you do analysis within each category; so once you talk about crust, you’re going to have to come to a conclusion about crust, once you talk about sauce, come to that conclusion that all goes back to your thesis. So the analysis goes throughout.
    Now, some of you guys may choose block formatting. And block formatting simply means that it’s guided by topic rather than category. So you’re going to start with an introduction and then you’re going to introduce topic one. So in this case it might be Monical’s, which is my favorite kind of pizza. And what you’re going to do in this area, and it could consist of multiple paragraphs, is you’re going to give multiple examples from just that one topic. So the first part of my paper is going to be focused on Monical’s whereas the second will be focused on Giodonalds, and I’m going to give multiple examples about Giodonalds here. One thing to know then is because you’re not doing much analysis inside these paragraphs because you’re sticking to just one topic, you’re conclusion has got to include your analysis where you’re really coming down to that ‘so what?’ question you’re answering now, the one that you answered in your thesis statement you’re repeating down here. So those are the two ways to organize compare/contrast. Make sure again that you understand the task, know are you being asked to compare or contrast or do both and hopefully this will help you get started.

    Rethinking the Five-Paragraph Essay: Dos and Don’ts for Excellent Essays

    Chegg

    Many teachers have students start out writing essays using a five-paragraph structure because it’s a simple way to structure a paper—an introduction, your top three points to make, and a conclusion that ties it all together. Unfortunately, more likely than not, the five-paragraph structure will be more of a hindrance to getting your point across than a helper. Collegiate and professional writing almost always strays from the five paragraph structure that your teacher forced upon you in Freshman year English. Here’s why:

    Some topics just don’t fit into three sub points

    Let’s take for example, an argumentative essay on the Miranda Supreme Court case. In its decision, the court says that the Miranda warnings are required for cases of “custodial interrogation.” Therefore there must be both custody and interrogation. In order to write an essay on the Miranda decision, you only have two main points to argue, so there’s no reason why you should force a third paragraph. Similarly, you might construct an argument that needs four supporting paragraphs, like an essay on William Wordsworth’s “I wandered lonely as a cloud,” which is a four-stanza poem. These are just two examples, but you can easily see why sometimes arguments just don’t break down neatly into three subtopics.

    Some sub points are bigger than others

    If you look at how much smaller this sub point is than the one above, it’s pretty clear that one above deserves a full paragraph and the other does not. An unbalanced five paragraph essay looks sloppy—a little like this part of the post.

    If you’re moving away from a five paragraph essay format, you’ll still want to use some of the thought processes that were drilled into you in High School. The first step is, of course, to think of your thesis; what’s the main point you want to argue? From there, you can move into flushing out your argument through expertly crafted paragraphs.

    How to structure a paragraph

    A paragraph, by definition, should be structured around an idea central to supporting your main thesis or argument. An easy way to structure a thesis is through a list, though there are other, more elegant ways. If you use a list then you already know what topics your body paragraphs will be in a general form.

    Online Writing Tutoring

    One example of a very good outline template. Credits to NewView Options

    Examples are always helpful for illustrating, so if you were writing an English essay on The Great Gatsby, your thesis could be something like: “F. Scott Fitzgerald uses symbolism, figurative language, and Gatsby’s disappointment to criticize the American Dream.” Now say, you are writing about the symbols that Fitzgerald uses in the novel to criticize the American dream, you would not want to structure your entire paragraph around three different symbols that mean different things. Rather than talking about the Green Light and the Eyes of Doctor T.J. Ecklebert in the same massive, page-long paragraph, break it up—one (or multiple) paragraphs devoted to each symbol. After all, each one is an idea and thus deserves it’s own paragraph. Then within each paragraph, use evidence along with analysis to support your thesis. You can start out with interpretive claims (e.g. “the Eyes of Doctor T.J. Eckleburt represent the eyes of God”) and then back it up with specific examples.

    In general, here are the DOs and DON’Ts of structure when writing essays :

    Do

    • Link your evidence to the overall idea to prove the thesis (it also helps the essay flow better and make transitions seamless).

    • Use specific topic sentences—it’s ok to have paragraphs with only one piece of evidence as long as what you have to say about it is important.

    • Keep related topics close together. The reader doesn’t want to have to flip three pages back to remember what you wrote about earlier.

    • Introduce sufficient background before your analysis.

    • Outline and re-outline your topics and points until it all makes sense.

    • Include analysis! Usually papers that score low do so because they spend too much time on background and don’t include enough analysis.

    Don’t

    • Put two ideas in the same paragraph (even if they are slightly similar).

    • Have a paragraph that’s too long. If it’s longer than 3/4s to a full page, it’s probably a run-on paragraph.

    • Use such advanced sentence structure that no one can understand you. Simple sentences are easy to read and understand.

    • Judge an essay by its length (alone).

    Summary: Developing a paragraph should be as natural as an idea. Essays are, after all, just a way of communicating human thought into an easy to read format. Let the paragraphs and structure of your essay adapt to the size and power of your ideas.

    Kill the 5-Paragraph Essay

    There may be no greater enemy to quality writing than the 5-paragraph essay.

    Let’s just go ahead and kill the 5-paragraph essay at all levels, everywhere.

    Seriously. Let’s end it. We can have essays that happen to be 5-paragraphs long, but there shall be no more “5-paragraph essays.”

    That just about everyone reading this is well-familiar with the 5-paragraph essay is a testament to why it needs to be retired, and by retired, I mean killed dead, double-tap zombie-style, lest it rise again.

    The 5-paragraph essay is indeed a genre, but one that is entirely uncoupled from anything resembling meaningful work when it comes to developing a fully mature writing process. If writing is like exercise, the 5-paragraph essay is more Ab Belt than sit-up.

    A significant portion of the opening weeks of my first-year writing class is spent “deprogramming” students from following the “rules” they’ve been taught in order to succeed on the 5-paragraph essay and opening them up to the world of “choice” that confronts them when tackling “writing related problems” that they face in college and beyond. They cannot hope to develop unless and until we first undo the damage done.

    There will be some who want to defend the 5-paragraph essay as “training wheels” for the type of academic writing that will come later. You’ve got to know the rules to break the rules, right?

    Not really. At least not these rules, and the way students learn them. While a well-done 5-paragraph essay may exhibit some traits that we value in other forms of writing – engaging opening, clear focus/thesis, transitions between ideas, general coherence – the writing of a 5-paragraph essay is primarily approached from a tactical angle, and occurs outside a genuine rhetorical situation (audience/purpose/message). Because of this, students write from a list of rules handed down by their teachers, starting with the form itself (five paragraphs: intro, body, body, body, conclusion), and including specifics like the use of “good” transition words, never using “I” or contractions, and even limits on the number of sentences per paragraph or words per sentence.

    The result is a Frankenstein’s monster of an “essay,” something that looks vaguely essay-like, but is clearly also not as it lurches and moans across the landscape, frightening the villagers.

    More troublesome is what the 5-paragraph essay does to the writing process. The act of writing is primarily treated as a performance meant to impress a teacher or score well on a standardized exam. It fosters a number of counterproductive behaviors, not the least of which is the temptation to write in “pseudo-academic B.S.,” a lot of academic-seeming sound and fury signifying nothing, which becomes a very hard habit for students to break [1] .

    If the 5-paragraph essay were good training for writing college-level academic essays, you wouldn’t hear so much carping from college instructors about the quality of writing from their students.

    Mature writers need to navigate choices rooted in genuine rhetorical situations. They must consider audience, purpose, and message. The 5-paragraph essay requires none of this.

    Kill it dead.

    But what should we replace it with?

    The most important essay I ever wrote was in 3rd grade.

    My teacher, Mrs. Goldman, told us we needed to write directions for making a peanut butter and jelly sandwich. She never used the word “essay” because that would’ve been meaningless to us, but this was actually a “process” or “how-to” essay, and to write a good one, you need to think very carefully about what you’re telling your audience.

    We were 3rd graders, so of course, we didn’t do this. The extent to which we didn’t became apparent next class when Mrs. Goldman brought in the necessary supplies for making a peanut butter and jelly sandwich and then told us we had to make our sandwiches exactly according to our directions.

    If you forgot to mention that you needed bread on which to spread the peanut butter, you smeared it on the plate. If you wrote to spread peanut butter on a slice of bread, but didn’t say to use a knife, we were instructed to use our hands.

    I don’t think anyone in the class managed to create an edible sandwich, but we had a lot of fun laughing at the attempts, and the memory is indelible. That day, I learned that writers need to be careful with their words because if someone is asked to follow them, things can go very very wrong.

    Mrs. Goldman was teaching us a number of different things, genre awareness, audience, structure and sequencing. None of it had anything to do with a standardized assessment. We were solving a writing-related problem. Most of all, we were absorbing the lesson that above all, writing is done for audiences.

    Even the old-fashioned “book report” is superior to the 5-paragraph essay as a tool for developing writers and writing, as it embraces audience and purpose, i.e., tell someone about the book you just read and whether or not they should read it too. A book report is the solution to a genuine writing-related problem.

    The steady encroachment of standardized assessment on education and learning has only exacerbated the damage of the 5-paragraph essay. If the 5-paragraph essay was only one genre among many, we could safely contain the contagion, but as it is the easiest form to assess, it is now the monolith at the center of the English classroom.

    It is a spirit killer for both students and teachers. For those who are fans of so-called “accountability” in education, it is actually the tool that allows the worst teachers to hide amongst the good, as it’s incredibly easy to game with hacks, tips, and tricks.

    So let’s free ourselves from the 5-paragraph essay. Yes, the aftermath may be a little messy and the testing companies will have to think of something else – a feature, not a bug as far as I’m concerned – but we might just realize that good writing requires a lot of curiosity, and at least a little bit of freedom.

    At this point, what do we have to lose?

    CUNY FORUM Article and Essay Submissions

    By AAARI | August 8, 2018

    The purpose of CUNY FORUM is to provide an open space and a public commons for dialogue, debate and divergence from the status quo.

    The FORUM seeks to create a fresh approach to Asian American scholarship: inclusive of new constituencies, comparative theories and ideas, while inviting writing that seeks to transform a society still polarized by its class, gender, race, and belief-based systems.

    We are accepting submissions in the following categories:

    1. Original social science and historical research
    2. Research summaries / practitioners’ essays
    3. Original essays
    4. Literary works
    5. Reviews of literature and media
    6. Graphic artworks

    All submissions are reviewed by a combination of the FORUM’s editors and editorial advisors. Original research is subject to additional outside blind review.

    Articles for publication consideration should be sent to:

    CUNY FORUM EDITOR
    c/o Asian American and Asian Research Institute
    The City University of New York
    25 West 43rd St., Suite 1000

    Diabetes in Asian American Adolescents

    – In today’s society diabetes mellitus has become a prevalent issue, especially because it is affecting our youth in increasing numbers. Diabetes is defined as “a complex disorder of carbohydrate, fat, and protein metabolism that is primarily a result of a deficiency or complete lack of insulin secretion by the beta cells of the pancreas or resistance to insulin (“DM,” 2013, p. 522). The number of adults diagnosed with diabetes has significantly increased from the 1980s to today, as well as the number of children being diagnosed….   [tags: Diabetes Mellitus, Society, Risk Factors]

    Asian and American Culture in an American Society

    – The United States of America is a ‘melting pot’ of diverse cultures. Though primarily Western in nature, due to the large-scale immigration of variant ethnicities from other countries, as well as differing birth and death rates of natives, settlers and immigrants, the ‘white’ American culture has taken on the hues of a rainbow. Within this society, the Asian-Americans, are often perceived to be at the highest stratum due to high income and good education. These people have almost successfully integrated themselves into society thus resulting in a blurring of lines….   [tags: western, large-scale immigration]

    The Asian-American Learning Experience: Are Asian Americans Being Misunderstood in the American Classroom?

    – Newly immigrated Asian-American students are often misunderstood by their classroom behavior. They may hesitate or give short responses to questions, use a soft voice, decline to openly volunteer information, and avoid eye contact. Their facial expressions may be mistaken for displeasure rather than concentration, such as frowning when hard at work. They may become embarrassed when praised. All of these examples are often misinterpreted by teachers due to ignorance. These children are merely abiding by the social rules of their Asian culture, which may be unfamiliar to many Americans….   [tags: asian culture, teaching, education]

    The Media as a Mirror of the Asian-American Women

    – Imagine a distant post-apocalyptic future in which a group of researchers discovers a stack of DVDs of 20th and 21st century Hollywood movies of Asian American actresses. After watching those movies, what might the researchers conclude about the characteristics of Asian American women in the movies. Certainly, they will view Asian American women as sexual and erotic objects of the society that white men can score with ease. Why do I assume they will think that way. The answer is a simple, yet controversial one: mostly, the media, as the history proves, portrays Asian American women either as erotic sex slaves of white men or as insidious personalities who lure their prey into a trap with the…   [tags: Gender Studies]

A few facts that have been given by the US Census Bureau include: • In 2011, the population of Asians with more than one race was estimated at 18.2 million. • The referred population includes about 50 subgroups with reference to origins, diversity in culture, ethnicity, religious traditions, English proficiency, and geographical and immigration history • The Asian population has been estimated to about 40.6 million by 2050….   [tags: well-being, immigrants]

    Being Asian American

    – Would You Like Some Rice With That. To be young and Asian in America is a special brand of torture. There is an unspoken dictum of silence that grips Asian youth, a denial of our place in popular culture. Asian youth walk in America not quite sure where we fit in-black children have a particular brotherhood, Hispanic children have a particular brotherhood, white children own everything else. We cannot lay claim to jazz or salsa or swing; we cannot say our ancestors fought for equality against an oppressive government or roamed the great hallways of power across the globe….   [tags: Asia Asian Culture Cultural Essays]

    The Essential Business Sector of the Asian-American Entrepreneurs

    – Asian American entrepreneurs are an essential part of the small business sector and to a larger extent, the US economy. Like many small businesses, Asian-American owned businesses contribute to the community and national economy by providing services and products as well as employment to many people. Even the White House acknowledges the benefits of Asian Americans to the US economy and society.

For instance, the Asian culture believes that illnesses are caused by supernatural phenomena, which should be diagnosed and treated by means of spiritual healing or traditional herbs. Physicians and other medical practitioners should try to understand the cultural beliefs of their patients to handle them appropriately….   [tags: Spiritual Healing, Patient Compliance]

    Political Campaign: The Crusade Against Asian Americans

    – As most developed nations around the world continue to be plunged into the economic crisis that began in 2008, any major country that continues to strive during the depression immediately becomes the attention of the citizens of affected countries. While major global powers began to suffer from a loss in international prominence, several foreign countries continued to experience economic growth.

    – Asian Americans as Model Minorities For 20 years, Asian Americans have been portrayed by the press and the media as a successful minority. Asian Americans are believed to benefit from astounding achievements in education, rising occupational statuses, increasing income, and are problem-fee in mental health and crime. The idea of Asian Americans as a model minority has become the central theme in media portrayal of Asian Americans since the middle 1960s. The term model minority is given to a minority group that exhibits middle class characteristics, and attains some measure of success on its own without special programs or welfare….   [tags: Papers]

    Asian Americans in the Classroom

    – Asian Americans in the Classroom Asians are one of fastest growing minority groups in America today. During this century, various factors at home and abroad have caused people from Asia to immigrate to the United States for better or for worse.

    – Social movements are essentially collective actions by disadvantaged, and often minority groups taken to empower themselves and push for change on political and social issues. What differentiates social movements from interest groups is that social movements are a more organic and less structured approach, “Interest groups have letterhead (and headquarters and executive directors). Social movements don’t.” To summarize Sidney Tarrow’s definition from Power in Movement, social movements are collective challenges based on common purposes and social solidarities in sustained interaction with elites, opponents and authorities….   [tags: Ethnic, Miinorities]

    The Asian As Superior Myth

    – The author, Ronald Takaki, wishes to illustrate that the perceptions of Asian Americans as a "model minority" are not entirely accurate. Takaki writes that the facts and figures used to compare Asian-Americans to other, less successful minority groups are misleading. For example, the author writes that although Japanese Americans are seen as upwardly mobile, they have not yet achieved equality. The essay states that "while Japanese American men in California earned an average income comparable to Caucasian men in 1980, they did so only by acquiring more education and working more hours." In addition, the author found that while some Asian American groups do have higher…   [tags: essays research papers]

After the humiliation of the 1998 Asian Financial Crisis, the sounding of the death knell for the Asian-values debate seemed imminent. Yet with the recent ascension of China as an economic superpower and similar economic miracles in the East, some began to speculate about ‘Asian Values’ and its inherent superiority in the political, economic and social structures in countries. ‘Asian values’ can be termed as a set of values shared by people of many different nationalities and ethnicities living in East and Southeast Asia….   [tags: Economics]

    How to Write a Five Paragraph Essay

    Five Parts: Drafting Your Introduction Developing Three Body Paragraphs Drafting Your Conclusion Revising and Editing Your Essay Essay Help Community Q&A

    Five paragraph essays are a common assignment throughout your school career, especially in high school and college. Since any subject can include a five paragraph essay, you’ll want to be good at writing them. Luckily, five-paragraph essays are really easy to write if you know the expected format and give yourself the time you need to write it. To write your five paragraph essay, draft your introduction, develop three body paragraphs, write your conclusion, and revise and edit your essay.

    Steps

    Part 1

    Drafting Your Introduction

    1. Image titled Write a Five Paragraph Essay Step 1

      1
      Start with a hook. Your hook should capture your audience’s attention, so choose a creative way to introduce your topic. This sentence should be a generalized statement about your topic that gives the reader a basic idea about your paper’s topic. Quotes, anecdotes, and quips all make great hooks for an essay. [1]

      • For example, you could phrase your hook like this: Nature’s life cycle is often used as a metaphor to convey ideas about the passage of life.
      • If you are writing a persuasive essay, don’t include your stance in your hook.
      • Don’t say “In this essay” or “I am going to show.” Instead, use the “show, don’t tell” technique using descriptive language.
      • It’s often easiest to come up with your hook after you write the rest of your essay. If you’re struggling to come up with one, use a basic placeholder and then create a better hook when you revise your essay.
    2. Image titled Write a Five Paragraph Essay Step 2

      2
      Include a sentence about your topic that provides more information. Your second sentence should tell the reader more about your topic, while still remaining generalized. Provide necessary background information and define your topic. [2]

      • Don’t reveal your main points yet.
      • For example, you could say something like this: While spring compares with birth, summer can symbolize maturity, with fall and winter showing a descent toward death.
    3. Image titled Write a Five Paragraph Essay Step 3

      3
      Write another sentence about your topic that leads to your thesis. Continue to provide background information, but start to narrow down toward your thesis. The reader should begin to see the focus of your essay start to take shape. [3]

      • This sentence depends on what type of paper you’re writing. If it’s an argumentative paper, introduce both sides of the argument. In an informative paper, mention the central idea and focus.
      • As an example, you could narrow your topic like this: Writers often use nature metaphors in their work to show themes about life, such as the blossoming of youth.
    4. Image titled Write a Five Paragraph Essay Step 4

      4
      Finish the introduction with your thesis . Your thesis should be the last sentence of your introduction, setting up the rest of your essay. Your thesis should contain your stance, your supporting points, or the theme for your points. Each of your paragraphs will connect back to your thesis, so think of it as a road map for your paper. [4]

      • For example, your thesis could read like this: In the poem “Raspberries,” the author shows youth through the ripening berries, summer blossoming, and blushing color of the fruit.
      • Each of the three examples provided in the thesis will become the topic of a body paragraph. For the example thesis, you would have body paragraphs about ripening berries, summer blossoming, and the blushing color of the fruit.

    Part 2

    Developing Three Body Paragraphs

    1. Image titled Write a Five Paragraph Essay Step 5

      1
      Arrange your points to sandwich your weakest. You should have three points, and you want your reader to view them as being strong. Starting off with your strongest point will show the reader that your stance is right, and ending with your second strongest point will create strong support for your thesis. This means that your weakest point needs to be in the middle. [5]

      • You should include three body paragraphs, one for each supporting point.
    2. Image titled Write a Five Paragraph Essay Step 6

      2
      Begin each body paragraph with a topic sentence. A topic sentence will state your point and connect it back to the thesis. This shows the reader why your point supports the idea(s) you presented in your thesis. The topic sentence will control the rest of your body paragraph, just like your thesis controls your essay. [6]

      • Your topic sentence is like a mini-thesis for just that paragraph.
      • Use a quote related to your thesis and analyze it in the body paragraph. If you use a topic sentence, put the quote next.
      • For example, your topic sentence could look like this: Ripening berries show youth in the poem “Raspberries” by reaching maturity and becoming ready for picking.
    3. Image titled Write a Five Paragraph Essay Step 7

      3
      Provide your evidence or examples. Depending on the type of essay that you are writing, you may pull evidence from a text or research that you did about your topic. Alternatively, you may use examples to back up your points, especially if you’re writing your essay in class. [7]

      • Each paragraph should contain two to three examples or pieces of evidence.
      • If you use research, cite your sources in the appropriate format that your instructor specifies.
    4. Image titled Write a Five Paragraph Essay Step 8

      4
      Add your own commentary. Your commentary is where you show your reader how your evidence or examples support your points and connect back to your topic sentence and thesis. Explain in your own words how your example or evidence proves your ideas, making your stance correct. In your mind, it may seem like you’ve made your point with just your examples. However, commentary is essential to a successful essay. [8]

      • Include two to three sentences of commentary for each example or piece of evidence.
      • Depending on the type of evidence or examples, it’s often best to alternate your evidence and commentary throughout the paragraph. For example, provide one example, then provide the commentary.
    5. Image titled Write a Five Paragraph Essay Step 9

      5
      Conclude your paragraph by linking back to your thesis. Summarize the points you’ve made in this paragraph, connecting back to your topic sentence and thesis. Show the reader how the points you expressed in this paragraph provide support.

      • For example, you could wrap up your paragraph like this: As the girl plucks the ripe raspberries from the bush and eats them, her actions represent her own youth and readiness to be “plucked” by someone.

    Part 3

    Drafting Your Conclusion

    1. Image titled Write a Five Paragraph Essay Step 10

      1
      Restate your thesis. You should start your conclusion with the ideas you expressed in your thesis. Don’t just copy-and-paste your thesis. Instead, rewrite your thesis with the weight of your argument behind it. Your reader has now read all of your points and evidence, and your thesis should reflect this. [9]

      • For example, you could restate your thesis like this: The poem “Raspberries” provides an allegorical representation of youth through a metaphor of ripening berries, summer blossoming, and blushing color of the fruit.
      • If you’re a beginning writer, it’s okay to start your conclusion with “In conclusion.” However, if you’re an advanced writer, avoid starting your conclusion with statements like “In conclusion,” “To conclude,” or “In the end.”
    2. Image titled Write a Five Paragraph Essay Step 11

      2
      Summarize how your points supported your thesis. Include a review of how each body paragraph supported your thesis, reminding the reader of your arguments. You should write two to three sentences that briefly explain what you’ve said. [10]

      • Use an authoritative tone as you restate your arguments so that your reader walks away knowing that you are correct.
    3. Image titled Write a Five Paragraph Essay Step 12

      3
      Avoid introducing new information. Providing new information in your thesis can result in lost points on your essay. This will cause your reader to walk away with questions instead of confidence in your ideas. In a conclusion, you should only be restating what you’ve already said. [11]
    4. Image titled Write a Five Paragraph Essay Step 13

      4
      Tie up your essay with a concluding sentence . Your concluding sentence should leave the reader with a lasting impression of your topic. Use this statement to ensure that your reader keeps thinking about your essay after they have finished reading it. The following are great ideas for writing a good concluding sentence: [12]

      • Include a call to action.
      • Provide a warning about what could happen if your stance is ignored.
      • Create an image in the reader’s mind.
      • Include a quote.
      • Make a universal statement about life.

    Part 4

    Revising and Editing Your Essay

    1. Image titled Write a Five Paragraph Essay Step 14

      1
      Use spell check. Spell check can easily save you lost points for misspellings. This should be your first step in editing your essay because you can have your word processor do your spell check and then take the provided suggestions.

      • Always reread your sentence to make sure that the word processor is suggesting the right word. If you’ve misspelled a word that is similar to another word, then it’s possible that your spell check could suggest the wrong spelling, such as “then” instead of “than.”
    2. Image titled Write a Five Paragraph Essay Step 15

      2
      Proofread your essay. Take a break from working on your paper. It’s a good idea to give your mind a break, so consider taking a walk, stretching, or taking a bath. Then reread your essay looking for misspelled words, grammar errors, or typos. [13]

      • Look for errors that your spell checker missed.
      • If you can, ask someone else to proofread your paper. They will usually spot errors that you overlooked.

      Revise your essay to improve the flow. As you reread your essay, make sure that your ideas flow well. You may need to add additional commentary or rewrite sentences to make it flow better. You may also decide to add in additional transitions, such as “additionally,” “also,” “at the same time,” or “similarly.” As you revise your essay, double-check that you’ve addressed your thesis throughout. [14]

      • Combine choppy sentences.
      • Breakup long, convoluted sentences into shorter sentences.
      • Rewrite fragments and run-on sentences.

      Fix your formatting. Consult your assignment sheet or syllabus to see what formatting conventions your instructor prefers. Adjust your margins, font size, and spacing accordingly. Add your heading and page numbers.

      • If you have cited sources, make sure that you include a reference page in the style chosen by your instructor.

      Quick Summary

      To write a five paragraph essay, start with an introductory paragraph that includes a hook to capture your audience’s attention, and a thesis that explains the main point you’re trying to make. Then, use the next 3 paragraphs to explain 3 separate points that support your thesis. As you explain each point, use evidence from your research or examples in the text you’re discussing. Finally, conclude your essay with a paragraph summing up the points you’ve made and telling the reader how those points support your thesis.

      Tips

      • Never plagiarize an essay, which means copying someone’s work or ideas without giving them credit. Your teacher will deny you credit for the essay, and you may also get a discipline consequence.

      A five-paragraph essay is a prose composition  that follows a prescribed format of an  introductory paragraph , three  body paragraphs , and a concluding paragraph , and is typically taught during primary English education and applied on standardized testing throughout schooling.

      Learning to write a high-quality five-paragraph essay  is an essential skill for students in early English classes as it allows them to express certain ideas, claims, or concepts in an organized manner, complete with evidence that supports each of these notions. Later, though, students may decide to stray from the standard five-paragraph format and venture into writing an  exploratory essay  instead.

      Still, teaching students to organize essays into the five-paragraph format is an easy way to introduce them to writing literary criticism, which will be tested time and again throughout their primary, secondary, and further education.

      Starting Off Right: Writing a Good Introduction

      The introduction is the first paragraph in your essay, and it should accomplish a few specific goals: capture the reader’s interest, introduce the topic, and make a claim or express an opinion in a thesis statement.

      It’s a good idea to start your essay with a really interesting statement  in order to pique the reader’s interest, though this can also be accomplished by using descriptive words, an anecdote, a striking question, or an interesting fact. Students can practice with creative writing prompts to get some ideas for interesting ways to start an essay.

      The next few sentences should explain your first statement, and prepare the reader for your thesis statement , which is typically the last sentence in the introduction. Your  thesis sentence  should provide your specific assertion and convey a clear point of view, which is typically divided into three distinct arguments that support this assertation, which will each serve as central themes for the body paragraphs.

      Explaining Your Thesis: Writing Body Paragraphs

      The body of the essay will include three paragraphs in a five-paragraph essay format, each limited to one main idea that supports your thesis.

      In order to properly write each of these three body paragraphs, you should state your supporting idea, your topic sentence, then back it up with two or three sentences of evidence or examples that validate this claim before concluding the paragraph and using  transition words to lead to the paragraph that follows — meaning that all of your  body paragraphs should follow the pattern of “statement, supporting ideas, transition statement.”

      Words to use as you transition from one paragraph to another include moreover, in fact, on the whole, furthermore, as a result, simply put, for this reason, similarly, likewise, it follows that, naturally, by comparison, surely, and yet.

      Pulling It All Together: Writing a Conclusion

      The final paragraph will summarize your main points and re-assert your main claim (from your thesis sentence). It should point out your main points, but should not repeat specific examples, and should, as always, leave a lasting impression on the reader.

      The first sentence of the conclusion, therefore, should be used to restate the supporting claims argued in the body paragraphs as they relate to the thesis statement, then the next few sentences should be used to explain how the essay’s main points can lead outward, perhaps to further thought on the topic. Ending the conclusion with a question, anecdote, or final pondering is a great way to leave a lasting impact.

      Once you complete the first draft of your essay, it’s a good idea to re-visit the thesis statement in your first paragraph. Read your essay to see if it flows well, and you might find that the supporting paragraphs are strong, but they don’t address the exact focus of your thesis. Simply re-write your thesis sentence to fit your body and summary more exactly, and adjust the conclusion to wrap it all up nicely.

      Practice Writing a Five-Paragraph Essay

      Students can use the following steps to write a standard essay on any given topic. First, choose a topic, or ask your students to choose their own topic, then allow them to form a basic five-paragraph by following these steps:

      1. Decide on your  basic thesis , your idea of a topic to discuss.
      2. Decide on three pieces of supporting evidence you will use to prove your thesis.
      3. Write an introductory  paragraph , including your thesis and evidence (in order of strength).
      4. Write your first body paragraph, starting with restating your thesis and focusing on your first piece of supporting evidence.
      5. End your first paragraph with a transitional sentence that leads to the next body paragraph.
      6. Write paragraph two of the body focussing on your second piece of evidence. Once again make the connection between your thesis and this piece of evidence.
      7. End your second paragraph with a transitional sentence that leads to paragraph number three.
      8. Repeat step 6 using your third piece of evidence.
      9. Begin your concluding paragraph by restating your thesis. Include the three points you’ve used to prove your thesis.
      10. End with a punch, a question, an anecdote, or an entertaining thought that will stay with the reader.

      Once a student is able to master these 10 simple steps, writing a basic five-paragraph essay will be a piece of cake, so long as the student does so correctly and includes enough supporting information in each paragraph that all relate to the same centralized main idea, the thesis of the essay. Check out these great examples of five-paragraph essays:

      • Learning to Hate Mathematics  (cause-and-effect)
      • Shopping at the Pig  (classification)
      • Watching Baseball, Playing Softball  (comparison-and-contrast)

      Limitations of the Five-Paragraph Essay

      The five-paragraph essay is merely a starting point for students hoping to express their ideas in academic writing; there are a number of other forms and styles of writing that students should use to express their vocabulary in the written form. According to Tory Young’s “Studying English Literature: A Practical Guide:”

      “Although school students in the U.S. are examined on their ability to write a five-paragraph essay, its raison d’être is purportedly to give practice in basic writing skills that will lead to future success in more varied forms. Detractors feel, however, that writing to rule in this way is more likely to discourage imaginative writing and thinking than enable it. . . . The five-paragraph essay is less aware of its  audience  and sets out only to present information, an account or a kind of story rather than explicitly to persuade the reader.”

      Students should instead be asked to write other forms, such as journal entries, blog posts, reviews of goods or services, multi-paragraph research papers, and freeform expository writing around a central theme. Although five-paragraph essays are the golden rule when writing for standardized tests, experimentation with expression should be encouraged throughout primary schooling to bolster students’ abilities to fully utilize the English language.

      Too many students have come across complicated assignments on a very tight deadline. As a result, you try to get your paper done on time, spend a lot of time and effort and get a C+ at best.

      When Write My Paper for Me is a Valid Request

      So if you can see they follow 7 important steps while essay writing. In case you’d like to do it by yourself be careful and follow next laps:

      Trust us, there is not a student in the world who has never thought “I don’t want to do my paper.” The reasons can be numerous, and lack of knowledge, motivation, and/or discipline are not necessarily among them. Here are just some of the reasons why students should start googling ‘write my paper for me’:

      essay writer
      • Wanting to focus on major disciplines: With the ever-growing amounts of homework, it gets increasingly tough to have it all done yourself appropriately without losing your sleep and sanity. It makes perfect sense to focus on the disciplines that truly matter to your future career while letting a research paper writing service take care of the rest.
      • Lacking time for personal reasons: When you are a student, it doesn’t mean that you are nothing more than that. You are also your parents’ child, your grandparents’ grandchild, possibly even a spouse and a parent yourself. If – God forbid – some emergency occurs, it is naive to expect of anyone to sacrifice precious family time in favor of another college assignment. And such emergencies may happen regardless of how bright and zealous a student you may be. In such situations, term papers for sale are a real salvation.
      • Having a part-time job: If you are an extraordinary student, you probably receive some significant scholarship. Even so, however, it is rarely enough to cover your tuition, rent, and other expenses. If you don’t have a scholarship, then working part-time and earning your sustenance is even more vital for you. Unfortunately, even the best of grades will not pay your ongoing bills, so students often have to choose whether to spend those hours on homework or work. With custom term paper writing services, you don’t have to make this tough choice anymore.

      If even one of the reasons is your case, ordering custom written college papers is a perfect solution to the problem. Now, another valid question arises — how do you choose an essay writer service that will land you an A+? After all, if you pay someone to write my paper, you’d expect nothing less than that.

      Get in Touch with Professional Essay Writers

      It is easy to get lost in the sheer amount of websites that Google will show you if you search for something like “write my paper.” It is equally easy, however, to sort out the best essay writing service which you can trust with any assignment at any time. Here are a few features by which you can tell a reputable company which will be your helping hand throughout your whole studies from scammers who are only interested in your money:

      • The website should be easy to navigate. You can effortlessly find all the necessary information, contact customer service in case you haven’t, and order term paper online when you are ready to do so.
      • The contents of the website should be not only about bold claims and promises. Pay attention that there is a Terms and Conditions page, as well as descriptions of the company’s policies.
      • What they do if you want to make changes to your term paper while it is being written or after? Are there free revisions or refunds policies? What to do if you are unhappy with the outcome?
      • What guarantees do they give? You should be able to find all this information on the website.
      • There should be reviews and testimonials from actual customers both on the website and on niche forums. People are more eager to share their positive (and negative) experiences than one might think. It is reasonable to see what others have to say about a particular company.

      Order Affordable Papers For Students of all Majors and Levels

      Keeping their expenses at bay is yet another major concern for many students. Yet, when it comes to custom written college papers, it may seem that a cheap service will not give you the desired results, while a reputable service will charge extra. In reality, there are plenty of other factors involved. It often happens that an unreliable company will inflate its prices a bit to make itself seem more reputable. Meanwhile, a fair and trustworthy business will focus on optimizing its work to make its plagiarism free affordable papers accessible to a wider clientele.
      The good news is that students don’t necessarily need to overpay for an A+ research paper. Moreover, higher prices should raise suspicion (unless, of course, your paper is extraordinarily voluminous, complicated, or urgent).

      Improve your Grades with Quality Term Papers For Sale

      Custom writing services have grown into a reputable industry, and their services are available to vast audiences of students worldwide. More and more students even from the most reputable schools choose to delegate some of their homework to professionals. In fact, the most prestigious schools happen to have an outstandingly overwhelming curriculum, making it next to necessary for their brightest students to enlist term papers writing services. It often turns out to be the only way to ensure a decent GPA – to apply all your effort to writing some of the assignments excellently and have other custom papers written by professional academic writers.

      But even if you are a regular student at a community college, it may often happen that you invest tremendous amounts of time and effort into writing term papers, and get disappointing grades. Disappointment is not the only thing here, however. What’s more is that despite all your effort, you have to endure the reputation of an average student among your professors and fellow students. You can fix it effortlessly by having professionals do your homework! You can enjoy all the A’s without sleepless nights of tedious writing!

      Our Papers and Ordering Process

      It may not seem so, but we have taken great care to make our ordering process as brief and self-explanatory as it gets. If a user doesn’t see the sophistication behind it, this means that we have succeeded. All that’s required of you is to choose your academic level and discipline and to specify the topic and volume of your paper. There is also a Comments field where you can tell us all the specific requirements that don’t fit into the mandatory fields.

      It may seem like a Ph.D. dissertation is a much more serious undertaking than a five-paragraph essay for high school. Still, when a student cannot complete the assignment on his or her own, the stress is all the same, regardless of your assignment’s complexity levels or the possible consequences of your failure to accomplish it properly. Realizing this, we do not limit the scope of our academic writing services in any way. We have the most capable online essay writers to tackle any assignment on any topic! We are there for you, regardless of what kind of help you need!

      Our Perks and Service Features

      We know for a fact that no other company does such a great job at helping students as we do. But – to convince students to get supreme assistance from us as opposed to mediocre services elsewhere, we need to make your entire experience with us exciting, not only the outcomes. As such, we have added several unique perks. Among them:

      Paper Writer Service For Successful Students

      affordable papers for students

      Too many students have come across complicated assignments on a very tight deadline. As a result, you try to get your paper done on time, spend a lot of time and effort and get a C+ at best. This, of course, is highly disappointing, which is exactly why many students choose to contact paper writers for hire when they are forced to work on similar assignments again. On the other hand, way too many frustrated students still believe they should complete all of their writing independently, even if they do not feel like it at all. So, let’s quickly debunk all myths about custom paper writing and lazy students to clear your doubts once and for all.

      When Write My Paper for Me is a Valid Request

      So if you can see they follow 7 important steps while essay writing. In case you’d like to do it by yourself be careful and follow next laps:

      Trust us, there is not a student in the world who has never thought “I don’t want to do my paper.” The reasons can be numerous, and lack of knowledge, motivation, and/or discipline are not necessarily among them. Here are just some of the reasons why students should start googling ‘write my paper for me’:

      • Wanting to focus on major disciplines: With the ever-growing amounts of homework, it gets increasingly tough to have it all done yourself appropriately without losing your sleep and sanity. It makes perfect sense to focus on the disciplines that truly matter to your future career while letting a research paper writing service take care of the rest.
      • Lacking time for personal reasons: When you are a student, it doesn’t mean that you are nothing more than that. You are also your parents’ child, your grandparents’ grandchild, possibly even a spouse and a parent yourself. If – God forbid – some emergency occurs, it is naive to expect of anyone to sacrifice precious family time in favor of another college assignment. And such emergencies may happen regardless of how bright and zealous a student you may be. In such situations, term papers for sale are a real salvation.
      • Having a part-time job: If you are an extraordinary student, you probably receive some significant scholarship. Even so, however, it is rarely enough to cover your tuition, rent, and other expenses. If you don’t have a scholarship, then working part-time and earning your sustenance is even more vital for you. Unfortunately, even the best of grades will not pay your ongoing bills, so students often have to choose whether to spend those hours on homework or work. With custom term paper writing services, you don’t have to make this tough choice anymore.

      If even one of the reasons is your case, ordering custom written college papers is a perfect solution to the problem. Now, another valid question arises — how do you choose an essay writer service that will land you an A+? After all, if you pay someone to write my paper, you’d expect nothing less than that.

      Get in Touch with Professional Essay Writers

      It is easy to get lost in the sheer amount of websites that Google will show you if you search for something like “write my paper.” It is equally easy, however, to sort out the best essay writing service which you can trust with any assignment at any time. Here are a few features by which you can tell a reputable company which will be your helping hand throughout your whole studies from scammers who are only interested in your money:

      • The website should be easy to navigate. You can effortlessly find all the necessary information, contact customer service in case you haven’t, and order term paper online when you are ready to do so.
      • The contents of the website should be not only about bold claims and promises. Pay attention that there is a Terms and Conditions page, as well as descriptions of the company’s policies.
      • What they do if you want to make changes to your term paper while it is being written or after? Are there free revisions or refunds policies? What to do if you are unhappy with the outcome?
      • What guarantees do they give? You should be able to find all this information on the website.
      • There should be reviews and testimonials from actual customers both on the website and on niche forums. People are more eager to share their positive (and negative) experiences than one might think. It is reasonable to see what others have to say about a particular company.

      Order Affordable Papers For Students of all Majors and Levels

      Keeping their expenses at bay is yet another major concern for many students. Yet, when it comes to custom written college papers, it may seem that a cheap service will not give you the desired results, while a reputable service will charge extra. In reality, there are plenty of other factors involved. It often happens that an unreliable company will inflate its prices a bit to make itself seem more reputable. Meanwhile, a fair and trustworthy business will focus on optimizing its work to make its plagiarism free affordable papers accessible to a wider clientele.
      The good news is that students don’t necessarily need to overpay for an A+ research paper. Moreover, higher prices should raise suspicion (unless, of course, your paper is extraordinarily voluminous, complicated, or urgent).

      Improve your Grades with Quality Term Papers For Sale

      Custom writing services have grown into a reputable industry, and their services are available to vast audiences of students worldwide. More and more students even from the most reputable schools choose to delegate some of their homework to professionals. In fact, the most prestigious schools happen to have an outstandingly overwhelming curriculum, making it next to necessary for their brightest students to enlist term papers writing services. It often turns out to be the only way to ensure a decent GPA – to apply all your effort to writing some of the assignments excellently and have other custom papers written by professional academic writers.

      But even if you are a regular student at a community college, it may often happen that you invest tremendous amounts of time and effort into writing term papers, and get disappointing grades. Disappointment is not the only thing here, however. What’s more is that despite all your effort, you have to endure the reputation of an average student among your professors and fellow students. You can fix it effortlessly by having professionals do your homework! You can enjoy all the A’s without sleepless nights of tedious writing!

      Our Papers and Ordering Process

      It may not seem so, but we have taken great care to make our ordering process as brief and self-explanatory as it gets. If a user doesn’t see the sophistication behind it, this means that we have succeeded. All that’s required of you is to choose your academic level and discipline and to specify the topic and volume of your paper. There is also a Comments field where you can tell us all the specific requirements that don’t fit into the mandatory fields.

      It may seem like a Ph.D. dissertation is a much more serious undertaking than a five-paragraph essay for high school.

Realizing this, we do not limit the scope of our academic writing services in any way. We have the most capable online essay writers to tackle any assignment on any topic! We are there for you, regardless of what kind of help you need!
