The Essay

Your English 101 class will be made up of analytical essays. Whether you choose one topic or several, there are a steps to follow for every assignment.

  • What are you writing about?  Choosing a topic can be difficult in itself, so how can you pick an interesting one?
  • What's the history of your topic? You will need some background information to give you and idea of how the topic started and what's important about it.

This guide will help you with these steps. Each assignment has a tab that addresses the specifics of that assignment (based on your textbook readings). 

And, as always, contact me if you have any questions about research.
