How do I write an editorial for a website?
Hi (Student Name), The best way to write an effective editorial for a website is to thoroughly research your subject. Start your piece by giving the reader a brief history of your subject in 1 paragraph. It's always good to begin with an interesting fact about your subject as well. You'd want to quickly grab the readers attention and make the introduction as interesting as possible so that the reader wants to continue the story. For example, if you have spent the day with a well known celebrity and are writing the piece about them, start by explaining the setting which you met them and maybe describe their essence such as if they were laid back and cool or what clothes they may have been wearing. In the remaining story, it would be interesting to add direct quotes from the person along with any supporting sentences that can validate the quote. For example, the person being interviewed may say, "I love giving to charities that I feel are close to my heart." You may then start to explain to the reader that this person has been the ambassador for a children's hospital for 14 years and works closely with the children.

How do I begin writing a thesis statement for a Contemporary Art History class?
Hi (Student Name), The best way to prepare for a thesis statement is to research examples of good thesis statements in any field. A good thesis statement is concisely written in one sentence. The intention of a thesis statement is to persuade your reader to see your point of view on a particular subject matter.Begin by using an introduction to your thesis with two or three sentences. Your thesis statement, which can typically come at the beginning or end of the first introductory paragraph, gives your reader a scope of what they can expect to gain from your research. During your class, you will probably be given ample time to research your subject matter, but it is best to write down 3 to 5 topics that you'd like to explore. With a thesis paper, you will be explaining why you side with a particular topic and give evidence to support your thesis. A thesis is more in-depth as opposed to a broader topic. For example, Contemporary Art will have specific dates in which art movements occurred such as Digital Art. Since Digital Art is a broad topic, your thesis, for example, can explore why the preservation of more obsolete media is necessary. During your initial research, you may look for ways in which obsolete media is currently being preserved. Once you have your thesis approved by your instructor, then it is ok to go ahead and perform thorough research on your topic. The rest of your paper will be supporting your thesis with examples, prominent people, events ect.
When composing a letter of complaint to an establishment, what is the best verbiage to use to achieve effective results?
Hi (Students Name), I am happy to help you. The most effective complaint letters are those in which best describe the particular situation with as much detail as possible within 1 to 2 paragraphs if possible. Begin the letter with a formal greeting to the person in contact and, what I like to suggest is to, open it with a nice sentence such as, "I hope that all is well." Then go into a bit of detail regarding why you are writing this letter and state the date and times in which the situation occurred. Let the establishment know whether you are a regular patron or if they were recommended by anyone who you may know. If you are a regular patron, please explain why you like the establishment and then explain why you were disappointed. It is wise to always sandwich a negative situation with a positive. For example, explain that you are a regular customer because you like the friendly staff and good , but on Thursday, September 7th, you were greeted poorly by a server or if the food was not up to par. Then, explain that you would really like to visit again and would hope that you could enjoy a future visit to their establishment. Always avoid using vulgar language and remember to place yourself in the shoes of the person receiving the letter. This will achieve positive and effective results.
