CREATIVE WRITING TRICKS
A Manual For Composing A 3-Paragraph Essay On Soccer
This type of essay is for beginning essay writers that are just learning how to compose an essay. It is actually a visualization of the three components of an article and it forces the writer to organize their thoughts into the proper sequence of events.
The introduction is where you where you explain what your thesis is and your statement of purpose. In this instance, you already know your subject, now you have to create a thesis statement about soccer. Once you have the statement you have to create one more sentence to reel the audience in so they will have an interest in continuing to read the article.
Here is where you elaborate on your thesis statement. You need to come up with three points to substantiate your thesis or make your argument. Depending on what your thesis statement was on soccer, this will guide you on what is included in the body. Remember, find three points to back what your statement is saying. Don’t stray beyond those three points.
In this paragraph, you need to remind your reader what your thesis statement was and also leave the reader with something to think about. It is a good idea to restate your three points briefly that you elaborated on in your body.
