Earlier in the school we wrote the dictionaries and consisted of an introduction, a discussion with several paragraphs and a conclusion, or an introductory, a lot of water casting and a short story ending with an hour from the hour. However, it seems that around 2000, it was increasingly replaced by the Western entrant – the essay, more precisely, its structured essay, its business-like subspecies.

As the name implies, it differs from the usual one by a rather rigid form. On the one hand, it facilitates the presentation and perception of content, and on the other, it cuts down on a free and unlimited flight of thoughts. Admittedly, while writing an emotional message in this form might be difficult, it is the most appropriate to present a reasoned opinion.

So, what is a reasoned or structured essay?


Introduction. The first sentence should tell the reader about the essay. The next few sentences in the first paragraph should include the scope and sequence of the arguments. Input length is about 4-5 sentences.

Discussion. Paragraphs 4-5 are devoted to developing the main idea or argument. Ideas should be logically arranged.

Conclusion. In this section, you summarize your ideas (the main idea of each paragraph) to make conclusions, a summary.


1. Read the question, evaluate its goals and requirements to be followed.

2. Detect the keyword (s) to answer only what is required.

3. Plan and organize ideas in order of importance. Before drafting an essay, create a draft with all the ideas you put in the essay. Write all the facts, numbered in order of importance, concentrate all known information, sort it in logical order.

4. The essay begins with a thesis that briefly and accurately focuses on the essence of the answer. In the rest of the work, add to the statement expressed in the thesis with the material of theory, facts.

5. Complement information with specific details, information that will allow the reader to judge your competence.

6. Use terminology adopted in the field.

7. Watch out for wordlessness, uncertainty, unspeakable thoughts, repeated return to the already established.

8. The conclusion should relate to the introduction.

9. Before you submit your job again. Make sure the essay’s essay is comprehensively explained. Check if you have missed words or left some thought unfinished. Maybe some very important detail, fact, quote can be inserted somewhere that can significantly improve your essay.
