Periodically you will see a question listed as a freewrite. I use these as an informal method of seeing
what my students know or how they feel. They are not
graded for correct grammar and punctuation. I give
students about five minutes to answer the question by
writing down everything that comes to mind…
Never ignore facts and claims that seem to disprove your original idea or claim. A good essay writer either includes the contrary evidence and shows why such evidence is not valid or alters his or her point of view in light of the evidence.
Analyze some well-written essays. In your research, you'll probably come across some really well-written (and not so well-written) arguments about your topic. Do some analysis to see what makes them work.
