In baseball, you have to follow bases as you run.
Likewise, when you write an essay, each step is important to make sure what you write is effective. Follow these four steps to make sure you’re off to a good start.
1. CHOOSE YOUR TOPIC:
Brainstorm some ideas of barriers in your life. Choose one that you overcame, or are overcoming, by using one of Jackie Robinson’s Nine Values.
2. WRITE OUT YOUR MAIN IDEAS:
Make sure they relate to your topic.
3. CREATE AN OUTLINE:
Remember that each main idea needs details to support it. Use the outline to help keep you on track as you write your essay.
4. WRITE YOUR TOPIC SENTENCES:
Use the details from your outline to help you. Try writing practice sentences to get to the topic sentence you want. Now you’re ready to begin writing your essay!
