How to Write an Essay
In an introduction you need to grab the readers attention by adding your hook.
In your introduction state the point of what you are writing about.
Indicate your topic.
Set a foundation for the structure of each paragraph.
It is best that you do not give your whole story in just one paragraph.
Hold your information and give a few details.
Make it interesting so the reader will want to keep reading.
To wrap up your introduction you need a thesis statement.
MLA Format
The conclusion is where you sum up all your ideas.
It is the last opportunity to hook your reader
Try not to add any new ideas to your conclusion.
Restate your thesis differently in your conclusion.
Double Spaced
One inch Margins

In the MLA format you also cite where you got your information for the essay but, that depends on the type of essay you are writing.
what is a "Hook"?
When you are writing an essay, it is good to start off with something interesting to catch the reader's attention and make them want to read more of your essay.
People refer to this interesting fact at the beginning of your essay as the "hook".

Starting an Essay
State your thesis: make it direct and clear
Avoid using "this essay is about.."
you can start off with a question just make sure it is something the reader can relate to.
state an interesting fact about your subject.
You can try to "hook" your reader with a funny quote, riddle, or joke. Make sure the "hook" is related to the subject of the essay.
Lastly, make your essay fun to read, no one wants to read something boring.

*Body Paragraphs are to support the thesis statement or main idea of an essay.

*First paragraph is a clear topic sentence to tell the reader what the paragraph is about.

*Second paragraph is the Strong supporting details to fully explain the writers essay and what it is trying to tell the reader. The writer also explains its points of view.

*Third is the Weakest argument, it is where the writer tells you its least important ideas. It gives you its argument and moves on.

Thesis Statement
The thesis statement is always found in the introduction of a essay.
The thesis tells the reader how you will interpret the significance of the subject.
The thesis will tell you what to expect throughout the essay.
The thesis statement can be only one single sentence.

Details About The Body Paragraphs
*1st Paragraph should contain a significant example or an obvious beginning point to tell the reader what they are reading.
*2nd paragraph contains an argument that follows up to the first body paragraph. This topic should relate to the thesis statement in the introductory paragraph.
*3rd paragraph weakest statement, weakest example. the last sentence of this paragraph should include a transitional concluding hook that signals the reader that this is the final major points in the essay
emphasize the importance of your essay
again make the conclusion fun to read !
