ECPE: Writing

Writing an essay

Organization and development of ideas are extremely important in an essay. You should read the topic carefully and decide what the main question is, what the purpose is and what style of writing would be appropriate in the given situation.

Brainstorm first, think of as many ideas a you can and write them down.

Select the best ideas and think how they can be linked together in paragraphs.

Decide on a thesis statement and the logical order for the paragraphs.
