I am assigned to write a formal essay focusing on the theme of "Mrs Turner Cutting the Grass". Are job is to support our argument with any of the following: plot structure, symbolism, irony, humour, pathos, style or foreshadowing.
How do I go about this?
Can anyone help me.
Follow the writing process, whether you're writing for science, history, English, or any other subject:
Prewriting: brainstorm, research, plan, outline, thesis statement
Writing: write first draft by starting with section II of your outline; write introduction after the body of the paper is written; write the conclusion last.
Polishing: revise, concentrating first on the body of the paper, then the intro, then the concl (revision = making sure ideas are logical and sequential and support your thesis); proofread (spelling, grammar, usage, etc.)
Do you have a thesis yet? Have you done your brainstorming (and maybe research) yet? Have you written an outline?
