Hi Liz. In your essay example above, you state your opinion (positive/negative) and give the reason for the opinion in the introduction. What if the question ask for the cause of some issue and also the trend? What should i state in the introduction? Both or just one? And how do i arrange the content in the paragraphs? For example: what is the cause for this issue? Is it a positive or negative development?
Parker begins the essay with the Ethos technique giving the reader her political perspective, when she states, “…I think of myself as a libertarian” in the first paragraph....
Each paragraph must have a central theme. Keep ideas logically organised. If it is an opinion essay, the whole content of the essay explains your opinion and nothing more.
If am writing a positive /nigantive essay like this one above, do I write about only negatives if I think that the negatives are more or do I write about both of pros and cons and then say my opinion?…
Do I say my potion in separate paragraph, or I say it in the paragraph that I agree with?….. Plz answer me I really need this?…..
I just wonder that whether we should use chat online instead of chatting online in 2nd paragraph of this essay since it can be a verb to present second action after “people prefer to”.
5 paragraph essay topics are not limited to anything, as anything can be discussed in this type of essay. You can choose the essay topic that you know the most about, for example:
Dear Liz mam,
Here the question is, is it a positive or negative development? . Author likes to answer as negetive deveopment and gives detail description why is it negative development.
My question is, why does he not write a paragraph on its positive development? is it necessary? is it only acquired in both view discussion question?
Thank you for your good job.
Heyy lizz i want to ask u , you said previously that we shoud write in the body paragrapgh (1 para) explaining the oppsite side : actually am a little bit confused because it’s really like the advantages and disadvantages essay , can u tell me the diffrence between them so i can be aware while am writing.
In Martin Luther King’s essay “Letter from Birmingham Jail,” the paragraphs that have the most emotional appeal are, just as the critics say, paragraphs thirteen and fourteen.
Students need to be very careful that they don’t change an opinion essay into a discussion essay. You are right the instructions ask “OR” which means to choose. With these essays, the easiest way to deal with it is to choose one side and have a main point for each body paragraph. As you can see , in my model essay above, I have chosen one side.
Hey LIZ I made a big mistake today. I forgot to put the disadvantages in the “do the advantages outweigh the disadvantages?” Essay . I just kept discussing the advantages in the body paragraphs. How bad did I goof ?
In the first sentence of the fourth paragraph (third paragraph in the body), "one blind eye" is used that hooks into the previous paragraph. This first sentence also lets the reader know that this paragraph will deal with descriptions of people: ". . . what the old man looks like . . .." Once again Poe is quoted and discussed. The last sentence uses the word "image" which hooks into the last paragraph. (It is less important that this paragraph has a hook since the last paragraph is going to include a summary of the body of the paper.)
exactly. Having your advantages in 1 paragraph and disadvantages in another paragraph make your the essay more orderly, thus, you will have a better score in your cohesion and coherence. 🙂
1The reader does not know much about what the old man in this story looks like except that he has one blind eye. 2In the second paragraph of "The Tell-Tale Heart," Poe establishes the young man's obsession with that blind eye when he writes: "He had the eye of the vulture--a pale blue eye, with a film over it." 3This "vulture eye" is evoked over and over again in the story until the reader becomes as obsessed with it as does the young man. 4His use of the vivid, concrete word "vulture" establishes a specific image in the mind of the reader that is inescapable.
