Whether you use Microsoft Word, WordPerfect, or some other word process to create your essays, save them as .rtf (rich text format). Doing so ensures I will be able to open and read them.

Exemplification Essay

Write a 500-750 word essay using exemplification as a method of development. Include an APA style title page and outline with your essay. Use the APA resources in the Papers/Projects link to make sure you format your title page correctly. Be sure your outline covers all the points you will discuss in your essay in a logical, streamlined fashion. This is your only essay wherein you will use APA style and citations. Make sure you format them properly.

Writing Approach

Determine exactly what point you are going to make and write it down in precise terms. Think about why you want to make this point. Develop a thesis statement (pages 47-49 in The St. Martin’s Handbook). Then choose examples and details that count for something, those that move the reader toward some goal.

Choose the best examples that honestly reflect the group or class they represent. Do not pick examples that do not support your thesis. Also, make sure that your examples display all the chief features of whatever you are illustrating.

Do not give your examples and their details in a haphazard manner; give some real thought to arranging them in the best possible order. You may use order of familiarity, climax, importance, or some other order.

If an essay develops a single example, try to have at least three important things to say about it–three areas of discussion.
