    Let's start with your thesis statement -- something like:

    XXX Elementary School should add a pick-up lane in front of the school.

    Then think of three reasons to support your statement. Those reasons will provide the body of your argument, probably a paragraph for each.

    After you get that far, if you post your essay draft, we'll be glad to read it and comment on it.


    These sites should help you.
