These are training wheels. You do not (should not) need to follow this to the letter. The best essays do this implicitly, and do not follow a format blindly. Heading: Name, Due Date, Class, Teacher Title: indicates focus, is creative, unique; same font and format as rest of essay, centered Introduction Attention grabber: Position statement: a strong stance toward the theme or topic; generalized view of the situation Generalized commentary about the novel/play/literary work – the big picture & why it matters Question or quotation (these are most prone to being clichéd and/or boring) Personal anecdote (make sure it’s relevant and don’t get overly sentimental or cute) Creative description—like the anecdote, but it’s your own invention Introduction of literary work and author (book/play/major work titles in italics; chapter titles, poems, articles in quotes) Transition/ lead-in to thesis Thesis: must specify the position you are taking toward the topic and indicate how you will prove that position.

What students are saying

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
