how to write a good essay it said the witching
0:04
question and it’s one I’m going to answer 18
0:08
approximately two minutes and then we’ll go on to something else which is
0:12
dependent on that which is how to use a good quotation
0:15
and essay is about a presentation well not only
0:18
your ideas but also the ideas
0:21
that you’ve acquired which prove the two
0:25
understand the subject when we’re thinking about the essay
0:28
with particular thing about these brief essays which we write in examinations
0:32
which going to last what three cause an hour but the same principles
0:36
will also work by extension simply by expanding
0:39
I what here we’re going to refer to as paragraphs
0:42
so an essay is made up policy reserve units let’s say five units
0:47
we’re going to write them down 12 3
0:50
fall 5 and we might call these paragraphs
0:54
unit 1 would be the in true road
0:58
duction and unit 5 would be the
1:02
con from you con
1:05
collusion but units 2&3 para nos 2&3
1:10
are those paragraphs where you were going to demonstrate to the reader
1:14
but you know what you’re talking about these paragraphs
1:17
a need to establish that everything is balance
1:21
so for example in an argumentative essay maybe paragraph a2
1:24
part of two would be the reasons for the proposition in paragraph 3
1:30
would be the reasons against
1:33
the proposition on
1:36
but to %uh the certain um leeway
1:40
here maybe paragraph 2 would be your main reasons for annual main reasons
1:44
against in paragraph 3 would be awesome century reasons for
1:47
and against now there is only
1:51
one a way to write an essay and that is to plan it
1:55
and the plan be important to the plan I’m
1:59
is not necessarily about everything that is in the essay i’ve seen some plans
2:03
where people have written so much so much as well written the essay
2:05
anyway the plan is about what
2:09
you don’t say about what you’re not going to say at the beginning
2:12
the plan is like getting your main idea is your best ideas on paper and in
2:16
saving them in saving them four
2:18
the crunch paragraph for
2:21
paragraph 4 is whether you establish very clearly
2:26
that maybe some other point in parent of two or three are not points you agree
2:30
with
2:30
you also maybe add you own special breed information is that
2:35
with him information which is so important which is so vital to your
2:38
essay
2:38
I’m which is vital to your getting the good mark at the
2:41
end paragraph 4 the crunch
2:44
is probably going to be your longest paragraph
2:48
is going to be the paragraph when you back up your facts
2:51
with good quotations gonna be the paragraph way you present your argument
2:56
in a clever logical ordered
3:00
way now a point about term
3:04
about 9-10 just very quickly paradise Juan para ghost
3:08
five-a probably going to be quite brief paragraph 1 you establish
3:12
how you intend to answer the question
3:16
paragraph 5a follows naturally from
3:20
crunch paragraph 5 is exactly what it says on the bottle
3:23
it is the conclusion all this discussion
3:26
if you want to start in paragraph five making
3:30
a new discussion if you want to start a new idea you want to write a new essay
3:34
it’s a wasted your time to add anything new to the parapet to paragraph by
3:39
paragraph 5
3:40
concludes what you been writing it follows
3:43
naturally paragraph or issue argumentative
3:47
paragraph paragraph 4 is what you’ve been waiting for
3:50
now look it’s exactly like the situation
3:53
when you get into an argument with one of your friends or indeed maybe not love
3:57
your friends
3:57
you want to say there’s no point in going to an inning going on to defensive
4:01
back to the beginning
4:02
and a battering someone meddling with the
4:06
not know the ridiculous childish say
4:09
you listened very politely to what somebody else got to say oh yes I
4:13
understand
4:14
and you reason with them how how how how clever your points up
4:18
how why is is your is your position
4:22
but paragraph or
4:25
123 reasons why opposition is wrong and I’m
4:30
you floored them you’ve destroyed them you establish your own point of view
4:35
very calmly and very brilliantly by conceding
4:38
that they also had a point to view to but that it was wrong
4:43
now as a
4:46
I am as in addition to this talk
4:50
a here we’ve got our are five paragraph system for the essay
4:54
we’ve also got to consider how we defend
4:59
and how we back up points and we do this with the quotation
5:03
up
5:06
now the quotation is something which has been
5:09
routinely misused in the past
5:13
today we are told that we must not plagiarize
5:19
this would have been a nonsensical concept to a first-century
5:23
a Greek or a first century Roman they routinely
5:27
adopted somebody else’s name to give I’m
5:30
credibility to their to their writings
5:34
I’m this is something that we’re not allowed to do wheels as opposed to
5:38
attribute
5:39
quotations with a poster tell people where we got them from
5:43
now that’s the that’s the legal business out of the way
5:49
what you got to do is to use a quotation the cutaway no
5:52
imagine you got six brilliant quotations
5:56
you’ve got 35 or 40 minutes in which write your essay
5:59
you’re probably not going to have time to use all six of those quotations
6:04
you have to choose very carefully because a quotation by definition
6:08
requires 3 sentences
6:13
ascendance to establish
6:16
the quotation to use the quotation to quote
6:20
and then to explain up
6:24
the quotation it’s like taking a Joule
6:28
from airing looking at a ring and you
6:31
you look at the ring you think August what a wonderful ring
6:34
how how Brighton glistening it is how’s house partly his
6:38
and then you take the June out at the ring if you’re a jewel up
6:41
and you look at that again you can you can turn it round you can see it by many
6:44
different facets
6:45
well in your essay you’re only interested in one or two facets you not
6:49
interest in the whole thing
6:50
so you have to apply your quotation you have to apply
6:54
that Joe put it back into its setting in the ring
6:58
arm now I’ll if you get your quotation right
7:02
the you got yo yo yo you’re going you’re going to win with you
7:06
essay you can’t
7:09
you can’t use every quotation that you got in your head
7:13
now not only can you use quotations a course
7:16
you might um be over to a mmm
7:19
refer two characters or events um
7:23
without necessarily explicitly quoting
7:27
this is useful to but the
7:30
the are to the quotation requires these three points
7:34
these three sentences establishing using the quotation explaining the quotation
7:39
there is no point in making your quotation longer
7:43
the things that you are writing I have seen essays where the quotation
7:47
is twice the length all the
7:50
a of the original works written by the student
7:54
this is absurd your quotation should be brief
7:58
and add RAM to the point
8:02
if you follow these steps you will you will
8:06
right a brilliant essay there’s no question
