Academic papers, in general, intimidate even the most acclaimed students due to their in-depth nature and demand for informative content. Throughout your high school career, you’ll have the dubious honor of writing many high school essays, many of which will need personal opinions, researched content and many pertinent points to help convey your point. In this segment, we’ll cover the proper way to write a perfect high school essay for any class which requires this fine-tuned piece of writing.
Early high school teachers, mainly freshmen, have little expectations for how the completed essay looks provided five paragraphs are present with three sentences in each. This doesn’t mean you can’t write like an all-star. Starting off with proper collection of materials, you will need to collect yourself a pen, scratch paper, your computer and spare time to research through Wikipedia or Google. Setup your Word document for 12 point Times New Roman font with full justification. Remember to indent every paragraph using tab key.
Sculpt The Outline
Your outline is perhaps the easiest way to write the remaining content, requiring only five main areas where your research and words go. These five areas should be outlined as such:
- Introduction – where the opening remarks of your essay goes. 3-5 sentences.
- Paragraph 1 – should contain an opening point/fact related to topic. 3-5 sentences.
- Paragraph 2 – again, should have another point or fact. 3-5 sentences.
- Paragraph 3 – make your final point here. 3-5 sentences.
- Ending conclusion – wrap up the entire essay into one nice package. 5 sentences.
