IntroductionThe purpose of the introduction is to make clear to the reader what the topic of discussion is, what your position on the topic is, and to give an outline of how your essay will unfold. Therefore, an introduction typically has the following features: 1. A thesis statement that answers or responds to the essay question or topic by giving your position, or stating your argument, clearly and concisely. The thesis statement tells the reader what to expect from the essay. 2. An outline that sets the sequence of arguments or issues for discussion in the body of the essayBodyThe purpose of the body of an essay is to support the claim made, or position taken, in the thesis statement. The body of the essay should flow directly from the introduction and be divided up into paragraphs that develop and support your thesis statement through to the conclusion. Each paragraph should include a topic sentence that presents the main idea of the paragraph (typically the first sentence) and supporting sentences that explain and elaborate on the main idea of the paragraph. These may include examples relevant to the topic of discussion and quotes or paraphrases from other sources to back up the claim made in the topic sentence.Each paragraph should develop one main idea at a time and be structured logically. The structure of your paragraphs will depend on the main purpose of your essay. An essay which discusses the historical development of an idea may have paragraphs which are structure chronologically, whereas an essay which is arguing a specific position may be organised into sub-arguments or reasons. If a particular sequence of discussion is outlined in the introduction, then the structure of the body should adhere to this sequence.In some cases, diagrams, tables and charts may be useful in conveying information in a structured format. However, if you use them make sure you refer to them and discuss their meaning and usefulness for your argument.Critical analysis and problem solvingWhen critically analysing a problem or issue, you need to use appropriate theory and/or research to analyse the problem or issue and to come up with solutions where relevant.Your essay should also reflect awareness that the topic can be analysed in terms of different, sometimes conflicting theoretical frameworks.ConclusionThe purpose of the conclusion is to draw the main arguments and concepts of your essay together and to show how these arguments and ideas support your essay’s thesis. Therefore, the main features of a conclusion include: 1. A summary that briefly restates the main issues or arguments covered in the body of the essay. 2. A thesis restatement that shows how the main arguments or issues discussed confirm your position. A conclusion should not introduce any new ideas or draw conclusion that are not supported by the body of the essay.Academic writingEnsure that your writing is as clear, concise and precise as possible. When writing your essay, use simple English to express your ideas where possible. Avoid using big words or flowery language. Instead try to write clearly by using simple language and sentence structures to express complex ideas, and incorporate specialised or technical terminology when it’s needed. Qualify your statements to ensure they are reasonable and express precisely what you mean. Avoid making sweeping statements or unwarranted generalisations. When evidence could be interpreted in many ways, phrases such as arguably, the evidence suggests, it seems and it is likelycan be used to modify, limit or adjust your claims so that they are more correct.Ensure that you proofread your writing and that it is free from spelling and grammatical errors. You will lose marks for poor spelling and grammar and for essays that have not been adequately proofread and edited.REFERENCING
