Introduction  Brief introduction to the essay topic with background information  Thesis Statement  Main idea of paper + transition word + 2 topics/reasons of paper.  Example:  You may either write a clear one thesis sentence introduction or write a short introduction paragraph that ends with the clear thesis as the last sentence. Prompt: Write an essay explaining how emotions affect judgments. Emotions can affect an individual’s judgments by blinding the person’s sense of reason; in contrast, emotions can also drive an individual’s passions.

Thesis Statement = Roadmap  Prompt: Write an essay explaining how emotions affect judgments. Emotions can affect an individual’s judgments by blinding the person’s sense of reason; in contrast, emotions can also drive an individual’s passions. ¶ #1 Topic Sentence When an individual’s sense of logic is blinded, he or she will be tempted to act rashly. ¶ #2 Topic Sentence Nevertheless, emotions might have positive influence on a person’s decision-making as emotions can help an individual achieve a goal.

Body Paragraphs 1 and 2  Topic Sentence  A sentence that reveals the main idea of the one paragraph. You need a new topic sentence when you start a second body paragraph.  Example  Historical  Literary  Personal  Analysis  The “so what” portion of the essay. Why did you choose that example? How does it prove your point? What is its importance?  Connect back to the prompt and your thesis.

Emotions might also have a positive influence on a person’s decision-making as emotions can help an individual achieve a goal. In Homer’s Odyssey, Odysseus is consumed by the love he has for his wife and son. The passion he feels for his family aids him in resisting the temptation of the sea-nymph, Calypso. Emotions drive this hero’s 20 year journey to get back to Ithaca, helping him finally achieve his goal at the end of the epic. Emotions can give a person the motivation they need to keep pressing forward, even when situations get hard. Without the emotional drive to succeed, mankind is left lacking a sense of urgency. Lackadaisical attitudes such as these can greatly hinder the achievements of a society. It’s only when people use their passions for a purpose that true change can take place.

Conclusion  Connect back to the idea of your thesis.  Cannot just rewrite your exact same thesis sentence from the introduction.  If you have the space, don’t just write one sentence!
