Question:

How should one approach the essay-writing process?

Rose P.
Answer:

There’s no one way to begin writing an essay. I like to start by listing everything that I know about the subject, then circling areas that I want to focus on. From there, I craft an arguable thesis—I ask myself, could someone reasonably contend with this idea? If not, I go back and revise until the answer is yes. Then, I find examples that support my thesis and write them in an outline. Before I even begin writing, I run this outline by someone—I want to make sure I’m moving in the right direction. Once I tweak my outline, I start writing! I ask a teacher or friend to read my essay at least twice more before I turn it in. Another set of eyes never hurts!

Answer:

I get it. You’re gonna major in neuroscience/mechanical engineering/sociology/making-the-world-a-better-place, who gives [blank] about Shakespeare? First and foremost, English class isn’t really about Shakespeare, or Dickens, or whoever you happen to be reading. It’s about learning to read critically and effectively communicate ideas. If we succeed in these areas, people are likely to take us seriously and listen to what we have to say. Strong writing skills make us better leaders, coworkers, and human beings. Plus, if we’re lucky, reading literature might make us more empathetic and thoughtful citizens, which makes our society more equitable and just, blah blah blah…
