In this video I will give you two essay writing examples.
Let’s take a look.
Here is our first topic: “Should children aged 13 be allowed to drive?”
So in step one, we’re going decide if it’s yes or no. So let’s decide and say, “no.”
In step two, we will write out the thesis.
And here it is:
“Children as young as 13 should not be allowed to drive.”
Now in step three, we will use the Power of Three to divide this topic, meaning we will find three reasons why children should not be allowed to drive.
Here’s our essay structure.
Children should not be allowed to drive.
Number 1: It’s because they are not serious enough. Right? They are still children so they are not quite serious enough.
Number 2: They are too small physically. They might not be able to see very well from behind the wheel.
Number 3: They need too much supervision.
Okay, let’s take a look at another essay topic.
Is marijuana very dangerous?
Well, let’s see.
Step 1: Again we’re going to decide yes or no. And let’s decide and say “no.”
Step 2: We will write out the thesis.
And here it is:
“Marijuana is relatively safe.”
Step 3: We’re going to use the Power of Three again to divide this topic.
Let’s see how this works in this essay.
So, we were saying that marijuana is relatively safe.
We’re going to say:
Section 1: It has healing properties.
Section 2: It is not as addictive as other drugs.
Section 3: It can improve some cognitive processes.
Now, I’m not sure if this is exactly correct but I’m sticking with this right now because I just want to give you an example of how you can divide a topic into three parts.
