The organization of essays

 

All essays have three parts:

 

 

 

1)  The Introduction  

 

 

 

 

 

 

2)  The body      

 

 

 

 

 

 

3)  The conclusion 

 

 

 

 

 

 

1) Introduction

 

The introduction to a persuasive essay

 

The introduction of a persuasive essay presents the writer's position on a topic and lists the points that he will use to support his position on the essay topic.

 

The introduction of a 300 word (CXC length) persuasuve essay is one paragraph long.

 

 

The introduction to a short story

 

The introduction of a short story introduces the characters, setting and plot of the story. Since a short story has a main plot or event that it is talking about and since it is short, then the short story will introduce the plot of the story immediately- in the introduction.

 

The introduction of an approximately 450 word (CXC length) short story is usually one paragraph long.

 

 

 

The introduction to a descriptive essay

 

The introduction of a descriptive essay begins the description of a scene, character/s or an event. A descriptive essay may take the 'point-of-view' of a character in the scene. 'Point-of-view' means that the description is being told through their eyes.

 

The introduction of a 300 word (CXC length) descriptive essay is one paragraph long.

2) The Body

 

The body of a persuasive essay

 

The body of a persuasive essay develops and expands on the points presented in the introduction. It expands on points supporting the writer's position or statement. Points against the writer's position may also be presented and dismissed in the body of the persuasive essay.

 

The body of a 300 word (CXC length) persuasive essay is usually three (3) to four (4) paragraphs long.

 

The body of a short story

 

The body of a short story develops the plot of the story that was presented in the introduction. It is important that the body of a short story moves the "action" of the story along quickly to a conclusion. The body of the short story  uses the 'action' of the story plot to develop the characters in the story. That is, it shows the personality of the characters by describing their actions in the plot of the story.

 

The body of an approximately 450 word (CXC length) short story is usually four (4) to five (5) paragraphs long. Please check the CXC annual best short stories to verify.

 

 

The body of  a descriptive essay

 

The body of a descriptive essay develops the description of scenes, events or characters by providing more details, and using literary devices to capture the imagination. Literary devices used may include metaphors, figurative language, and imagery.

 

The body of a 300 word (CXC length) descriptive essay is usually about three (3) to four (4) paragraphs long.
