The essay should consist of an introduction with a well-developed thesis statement, supporting paragraphs that support the thesis statement and make up the body of the essay, and the conclusion. Each supporting paragraph should have a well-developed topic sentence and details to support the topic sentence. The essay should be unified and coherent with specific supporting details or examples for support. It should provide sentence variety (simple, compound, and complex sentences). The paragraphs should be clear, concise, and arranged in a logical order. Transitional words and phrases should be used to provide coherence. Choose one point of view: first, second, or third person.
NOTE: the 3- pronged thesis statement should be in sentence 2.
