Essay 2

After you have written a free essay, it's time for you to write an academic essay.

The essay you'll write has to be an argumentative essay. That is, it has to have a thesis statement with your point of view about a given subject and you must defend your point of view with supporting evidence along the text.

When writing your text, keep the following features in mind:

  • Don't forget to put a heading in your essay.
  • Don't forget to give your essay a title. Remember that essay titles (and discussions) should not be too narrow or too general.
  • Paragraphs are expected to be organized in terms of a topic sentence and the development of that argument (and/or evidence/examples that bring support to the argument).
  • Each paragraph should revolve around ONE idea and have between 8 and 12 lines, preferably.
  • You can chose from 2 topics to write about: Free will or Gender issues. Both topics are too general, you'll have to limit your essay to something related to one of these topics.
  • The text should be aligned on both sides, with a paragraph indentetion of 1cm. The font must be Times News Roman size 12, with a 1,5 spacing between lines.
  • The length of the essay should be between 450 and 600 words.
  • Don't use contractions or colloquial language.
  • Make sure you develop your argument(s) in a logical order.
  • Check spelling, punctiation, and grammar.
