Tips for self- analysis
- Introduction. Introduce the topic. What is the essay about?
- Body. Choose a few of the talking points provided in the prompt or consider your own. Develop the essay by providing examples, narrating events, comparing and contrasting one idea to another, etc.
- Conclusion. Sum up your ideas. Why is the essay important?
- You are not writing a narrative. You may retell events to support your analysis, but the majority of your essay should not be a story.
- Always use paragraphs. Paragraphs help organize your essay but most importantly your thoughts. Figure out which ideas connect with what. Related ideas should be in the same or neighboring paragraphs.
- Original title. Create a unique title that hints at the main idea of the essay.
