Underline your thesis statement and do NOT change the title of your essay (it has to be the same topic from the list)
Below are some tips to help you write your essay.
Choose your essay structure carefully. Avoid including details that do not serve to advance or complete your essay. I expect your essay to contain a strong introduction that includes your essay’s thesis, a coherent and focused body that effectively transitions from paragraph to paragraph, and a rich conclusion that provides closure for your essay.
Use all the resources you have available to complete this exam. Refer to your textbook for strategies and tips on student writing. I strongly recommend that you read chapter 10 from the textbook.
Start with an Outline
What does the outline of an exemplification essay consist of? It basically implies jotting down single or several sentences for each of the examples you’ll use in your exemplification essay. Schematically, the outline looks like this:
·In paragraph 1, write one sentence outlining your topic, and one sentence describing your thesis statement.
·In paragraph 2, give several sentences to describe the first example and prove it with facts (in-text citation required).
·In paragraph 3, describe the second example and provide a short evidence (in-text citation required).
·In paragraph 4, describe the third example and provide a short evidence (in-text citation required). ·In paragraph 5, state your thesis statement again and sum up your exemplification essay by providing the included examples. Also, express your final argument and prove the main point of your essay.
Once you have the outline, then you proceed to develop each paragraph with more sentences and details and making transitions from sentence to sentence and from paragraph to paragraph.
General Guidelines
Type your paper on a computer and submit it here in the available link.
Double-space the text of your paper, and use a legible font (e.g. Times New Roman). Whatever font you choose, MLA recommends that the regular and italics type styles contrast enough that they are recognizable one from another. The font size should be 12 pt.
Leave only one space after periods or other punctuation marks (unless otherwise instructed by your instructor).
Set the margins of your document to 1 inch on all sides.
Indent the first line of paragraphs one half-inch from the left margin. MLA recommends that you use the Tab key as opposed to pushing the Space Bar five times.
Create a header that numbers all pages consecutively in the upper right-hand corner, one-half inch from the top and flush with the right margin. (Note: Your instructor may ask that you omit the number on your first page. Always follow your instructor’s guidelines.)
Use italics throughout your essay for the titles of longer works and, only when absolutely necessary, providing emphasis.
Formatting the First Page of Your Paper
Do not make a title page for your paper unless specifically requested.
In the upper left-hand corner of the first page, list your name, your instructor’s name, the course, and the date. Again, be sure to use double-spaced text.
Double space again and center the title. Do not underline, italicize, or place your title in quotation marks; write the title in Title Case (standard capitalization), not in all capital letters.
Use quotation marks and/or italics when referring to other works in your title, just as you would in your text: Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas as Morality Play; Human Weariness in “After Apple Picking”
Double space between the title and the first line of the text.
Create a header in the upper right-hand corner that includes your last name, followed by a space with a page number; number all pages consecutively with Arabic numerals (1, 2, 3, 4, etc.), one-half inch from the top and flush with the right margin. Use this Checklist before submitting your Midterm essay in MLA format to make sure it is well written.
