Supporting Details In Your Essay

Introduction is a major change that has occurred that has occurred in the Western family is an increased incidence in divorce whereas in the past divorce was a relatively rare occurrence in recent times it has become quite commonplace this change is borne out clearly in census figures for example 30 years ago in Australia only one marriage in turn ended in divorce nowadays the figure is more than one three in this essay I will seek to critically examine so look at what the writer is doing is establishing the context here therefore the subheading you should not be writing this way please avoid giving such kinds of subheadings in academic essays so the context in this essay what is that a writer trying to do he states that he will seek to critically examine a number of sociological explanations for the divorce phenomenon.

And also consider the social policy implications that each EX explanation carries with it it will be argued that I have left it here it will be argued that so this is how you construct a paragraph or introductory paragraph introduce the main idea the thesis what is the problem he has given some examples how the rate of divorce is increasing particularly in the Western world and then establishing the context what am I going to do here what is his intention to do here let me take you to another example please look at the slide this is a sample text for the body of the sentence look at the topic sentence and then look at the supporting details I’ll read it out for you academic performance is another key factor that was consistently cited as a factor that influences a student staying in school and graduating now see this is a part of an essay where the writer is trying to understand various reasons for high school dropouts you know when children don’t complete their higher studies higher academics so what what are the reasons so this is from the body these are not the introduction the introduction is for that you will have to read the entire essay I have given the source if you may wish you can look at the complete essay Here I am just trying to explain how one argument is constructed so then you look at the supporting detail.

This is not the way you have to write again please pay attention to these facts you don’t have to write topic sentence and supporting detail in your formal essay I am doing here or – just to make you understand things better so several research articles cited that the road to academic success starts early in the education system both school readiness and 3rd grade reading proficiency have been cited as indicators of future academic success after the 3rd grade children are no longer learning to read but are now reading to learn helping struggling students in the 3rd grade to read at or above reading proficiency will help be more prepared for success in the future research has also indicated that success in middle school is a key indicator of whether a student will drop out of high school in middle school.

Your Research And Opinion

Your research what reflects what you learn in class did something that you learn change your opinion if so why so ultimately what have I learned what spoke especially to me these the kinds of things that you want to ask yourself and then write about entertainment section don’t make a really solid development section a couple of other things on development it’s really important to write in your own words here a lot of writers will fall down by starting their development sections off with a sense of their own and then using huge chunks of direct quotes from their source material then i’m going to give another sense of their own then another huge chunk this is not the way you want to write your paper paper’s like that are praying it down why because we’re not seeing your work here it’s easy just to pick out a couple of sentences from a book and reprint them that’s not the point of a term paper we want to see your work what you think what you learn so you can use a few quotes but use them very judiciously the point is we want to see your writing what do you think what we do is if you like what somebody else has said you can paraphrase the writing put it in your own words. Find out more at Edusson.

But your own words on the point another thing is please do not use footnotes in the development section paper and something is important enough to include just write about in the body of your paper footnotes in this case are really extraneous and we have a lot of papers to read so we don’t want to have to go back and forth the footnotes so if you are not using we really appreciate that the point is whatever’s in your development section should be important it’s not secondary information you’ve only got X amount of words in the development section so you want to pick the things that are the most important that have the highest quality quality level usually footed footnoted material and no material is not of that level it’s an aside it’s an addition so that’s my that’s my suggestion dinner now let’s look at the summary conclusion for me this is the make-it-or-break-it part of the network writers with weak conclusions just regurgitate the development section.

They’ll just say exactly what they said the development in the conclusion that’s not what we want to see you want to draw a conclusion above your research you’ve done all this research you’ve gotta pendants we want to know what they are what successful writers do the trick is to create conclusions that reflect their research while giving their opinions on the subject and assessing its first since future status you want to summarize your main points that ask yourself what have I learned from my research what kinds of things are my subjects doing correctly for example if you’re writing about a successful company what have they done that’s right to make them successful conversely what are they not doing or what have they done one that’s allowed them to a downward spiral what could they in your opinion differently.

Liar by Justine Larbalestier

LIAR by Justine Larbalestier: Larba Larba Larbalestier~ I love the sound of the author’s last name.

LIAR was a very confusing book. It’s about Micah, a girl, a boy, a werewolf, a liar. We’re never sure whether or not anything she says is true. If everything she says is a lie, then wouldn’t her calling herself a liar be a lie? Thus everything she said would be true? My head is spinning.

LIAR was written to confuse, I think. It’s never confirmed whether or not the protagonist is telling the truth about her life (or if she’s even talking about her life at all). I kind of like it that way. I’d like to imagine this crazy girl telling her story to the police and then being sent to an asylum. I digress.

I was a fan of Justine Larbalestier’s Magic or Madness, so when I heard she had this new book out, I decided to read it and write my essay about it. I wasn’t disappointed. The narrative is well-written; it sounds exactly as if Micah is telling the story. The story is broken up into little bits of Before, After and little bits of Family History, among other less-used headers.

The book starts out with a seemingly-normal scenario, until the narrator admits she hasn’t been telling the complete truth. And then, about 150 pages later, she admits that again, she’s been lying. So it’s really hard to keep the story straight, if it’s a story at all. But I think that’s the point.

Johannes Cabal: The Necromancer by Jonathan L. Howard:

Johannes Cabal was fantastic! It was so full of humor (which in turn contradicted the dark topic) that I was smirking almost the whole time I was reading.

I’m not sure why this book ticked me so much. Perhaps it’s because the writing was lovely and the characters (especially Johannes) were quite amusing. Undoubtedly my favorite part of reading it was the humor.

I definitely, definitely recommend this. But only to those who have a taste for British humor. If not, it won’t quite hit the spot, because I believe the comedy was a big part of my enjoyment.

I’m definitely on the lookout for the sequel! I look forward to reading more of Johannes’ quirky adventures.

Have you read one of these books? Did you like it? Feel free to share your opinion!
