Next Faculty Meeting: Tuesday June 8, 2021

Before starting work on an essay, you need to clearly formulate the thought that you need to prove. Then, based on a statement requiring argumentation, a plan for future creative work is drawn up.Essay-reasoning scheme

1. Introduction.
2. Thesis.
3. Arguments: arguments, proofs, explanations, justifications; examples, cases, facts, figures; opinions of authoritative people, statements, quotes …
4. Conclusion.

The introduction to the essay-reasoning is a short introduction to the topic. It can be formulated as a question or contain a quote. The thesis put forward will become the starting point for subsequent reasoning, and most of the essay will be argumentation – at least 2/3 of the total volume of the text. It is believed that the optimal number of arguments for an essay-reasoning is three.
