Narrator: It is not necessary to start writing an essay from the beginning and write 

straight through to the conclusion. It is, however, necessary to plan the entire essay 

before you start to write. A simple outline will have an introduction with several 

supporting paragraphs followed by a conclusion, so let’s look at the 12-point essay.Slide 5

Repeated in narrative

Narrator: The 12-point essay is actually a miniature outline of a five-paragraph essay, 

except it only has 12 sentences. Each sentence is a small part of the overall essay.

There is one introductory sentence, one thesis statement, nine support paragraph 

sentences, and one conclusion sentence.

• Second support of A

• Second support of the thesis (states B)

• First support of B

• Second support of B

• Third support of thesis (states C)

• First support of C

• Second support of C

• Conclusion

Narrator: As you can see, the first sentence is the introduction. The second sentence is 

a three-pronged thesis statement. Sentences 3 through 5 are for your first support 

paragraph; sentences 6 through 8 are for your second support paragraph; and 

sentences 9 through 11 are for your third support paragraph. Sentence number 12 is 

your conclusion. Sentences 3, 6, and 9 are your topic sentences. From this short

outline, you can develop your entire essay because you now have a plan of attack.

start with support paragraphs; some write the introduction and conclusion first. There is 

no one system. Sometimes it’s easier to write the introduction and conclusion after you 

have written your support paragraphs. Regardless of how you choose to write your 

essay, you will accrue numerous drafts.

There are several sections to your drafts: the first draft, the middle draft, and the final

your transitions through words, phrases, repetition, and parallel structure. Sentence

If possible, the final draft should take place at least 24 hours after the middle drafts are

completed. This way, you will look upon it with a fresh set of eyes. The final draft 

involves making changes that improve not only what your essay says, but how it says it.

Proofreading is checking for grammatical mistakes, errors in spelling, typos, and other 

superficial elements.
