In this video you will learn how to write an essay in English.
Now, let’s say that this is our essay topic:
“Should children age 13 – 17 be allowed to vote?”
In step one, we’re going to decide – yes or no. And let’s decide and say “yes.”
In step two, we’ll write out the thesis.
And here it is:
“Children age 13 – 17 should be allowed to vote.”
Now in step three, we’ll use the Power of Three to divide this topic. Which essentially means that we’re going to find three reasons why children age 13 – 17 should be allowed to vote.
Now let’s go:
Reason 1: Children’s rights are protected by the government, and they should have a say. Meaning, children should have a say in how the government represents them.
Reason 2: Many children are more rational than adults, and rationality should drive the elections.
Reason 3: Children are often better educated because what they learn in school is still fresh in their minds.
And here’s our essay structure:
Children should be allowed to vote. (And we’re going to have three sections.)
Section 1: Children should have a say about their rights.
Section 2: Children are often more rational than adults.
Section 3: Children are often better educated.
