How to write essays — conversational outline plus examples

Writing essays can be tough.

If you start out with a conversational one page outline, known as an essay abstract, you can jump start the writing process and show your thinking process more clearly. Students will benefit from this approach and teachers can comment on the student’s thinking prior to any essay drafts.

This guide includes two examples of essay abstracts about literature: Romeo and Juliet & The Scarlet Letter.
