    How to Write Better Essays: 5 Practical Tips



    |

    199 comments


    For many such students, each essay brings with it the challenge of making it that little bit better than the last one. The problem is that when you write essays regularly, it’s easy to get stuck in a rut of repeating the same formula each time – particularly when you already receive good feedback from the teachers who read them. So how do you take your essays to the next level and go from great to brilliant? Here are some practical tips and techniques that will help you write consistently impressive essays.

     

    1. Read other people’s essays

    Just as the books you read subconsciously help mould your own writing style, so reading other people’s essays can help you develop and build on your own essay-writing style. Try to read a range of other essays, including those of your peers and of academics. Read essays on a wide variety of subjects, not necessarily just those that you’re studying; different disciplines might apply different kinds of arguments or styles, so the wider you read, the more possible techniques there are for you to pick up and use in essays of your own.

    As you read other people’s essays, don’t just take them at face value. Be critical: what do you like about them? What don’t you like about them? How persuasive do you think they are? Is the argument a balanced one, with points adequately supported with evidence? Has the writer used any techniques you’ve not seen before?

    Another good source of essays is the broadsheet newspapers. Read the opinion pieces and dissect how the writer has supported their points with evidence, and again, be critical; note where they’ve left things out to try to persuade you to a particular opinion. Essays should be balanced, so you can learn from the best of these writers and pick up some techniques to help you shape a balanced piece.

     

    Dictionaries

    Using accurate language helps a lot.

     

    2. Build your vocabulary and use it properly

    A good vocabulary will allow you to express exactly what you mean, as clearly and concisely as possible. Economy with words is a characteristic of all good essays, because readers (and essay-markers) don’t like having their time wasted with long, rambling points that could have been expressed in half the number of words.

    One way of ensuring that you can communicate clearly and to the point is through accurate and effective use of advanced vocabulary. A good essay writer should never rest on their laurels when it comes to vocabulary; it’s something you should be working on continually, as there are always new words to learn that could help convey a point more effectively. What’s more, deploying a good vocabulary displays intelligence and allows you to be more persuasive in your essay-writing. Here are some ways in which you can build your vocabulary:

    – Subscribe to a ‘word a day’ email (such as this one from Merriam-Webster). Create a folder in your email account for new word emails, so that you can file each email away and have them all in one place ready to flick through and learn from in an idle moment.

    – Read widely, and refer to a dictionary for words you don’t know as you go along; this way, you’ll learn the new word as well as seeing it in context so you know how to use it properly. Read different genres of fiction, and non-fiction covering a range of topics, and you’ll have the added bonus of widening your general knowledge as well as your vocabulary.

    – Use a thesaurus – if you find yourself using the same words over and over again, add variety to your language by looking up those words in a thesaurus and finding other words that mean the same thing. A word of warning: words you find in a thesaurus can’t always be used interchangeably; even words with similar meanings can differ subtly in a way that makes them inappropriate in certain contexts, so find examples of a word used correctly before you use a new word for the first time.

    – Learn prefixes, suffixes and roots – it sounds boring, but this shortcut will help you learn a great many more words. Many roots come from Latin and Greek words, such as “bene” in Latin, meaning “good”, which gives rise to words such as “benefactor”, “benevolent” and “benefit”. It’s often possible to deduce the meaning of a new word if you know its root and read it in context. Prefixes are added to the beginning of a word to change the meaning, such as “semi” or “ante”, while suffixes are added to the end, such as “-able” or “-ance”.

    – Start a vocabulary book – you probably have one if you’re learning a foreign language, so why not have one for your native language as well? Buy yourself a nice notepad and use it to collect new words and their meanings. The act of writing down the definition will help you remember it, and you could include an example of how the word is used to increase your chances of memorising it for use in essays. It may help to have different sections for words on particular themes; you could have a general section, and then further parts of the notebook could be dedicated to words of use in history essays, science essays and so on.

     

    3. Elevator pitching your essays

    We’ve probably all had it hammered into us that we should write an essay plan before we start writing, but before you even do that, you need to know what the argument you’re going to make actually is. Only then can you start writing the structure for an essay that builds up to your overall conclusion. To condense what you’re trying to say into a short, snappy summary for you to work from, try making an ‘Elevator Pitch’ style summary of what you intend to write and why readers should be interested in it.

    The Elevator Pitch is a technique used by salespeople when condensing the arguments for buying a product into the shortest possible summary of why a customer should consider a purchase. The salesperson is told to imagine themselves in a lift; in the time it takes for that lift to reach the desired floor, they should have given a compelling argument in favour of that product that would result in the customer buying it, or at least wanting to know more. Your Elevator Pitch for your essay should sell the idea of it to a reader, leaving them wanting to read the essay in question. This is quite a tough exercise, as it forces you to be ruthlessly concise in your thinking and choice of words; but you can use this summary to help you write your introduction, and it’ll help you achieve clarity in what you’re trying to say.

     

    4. Tell the reader what other people say

    We’ve mentioned this on a previous article on essay writing, but it seems pertinent to mention it here too. Essays are a chance for you to show off how widely read you are, so make sure you quote other people’s opinions, and original sources, on what you’re writing about. For example, if you were to write a history essay on early religious practices in Britain, you could quote original texts on that topic (such as Bede’s Ecclesiastical History of the English People) and also mention what a range of modern scholars have to say about the topic. Contrasting views should be sought; it’s unlikely that everyone agrees on the topic, so show you’ve looked at all the possible angles.

    For each of the subjects you’re studying, start a page in a notebook for important people in that field, with a summary of when they lived and what their views are. That way, you’ll have something to refer to when you’re writing an essay and want to consult appropriate scholars or other writers whose opinions you might wish to include.

    Don’t quote too much; mix citations with your own opinions so that it doesn’t look as though you have to hide behind other people’s words. It’s fine to disagree with a scholar you quote, provided you can give evidence and reasoning for doing so. This shows that you have thought about it and made your own mind up, rather than blindly accepting what that scholar has said; this demonstrates strong critical reasoning skills, one of the hallmarks of brilliant students.

     

    Placeholder

    Essays aren’t always exciting! Writing lucidly is a valuable skill.

     

    5. Syntax, punctuation and tone of voice

    You may not consciously realise it when you’re reading, but sophisticated sentence structures make the world of difference to how intelligent you sound. As we’ve already said, the most important consideration when you’re writing is making yourself easy for readers to understand; but you can still do this and utilise a range of interesting syntax at the same time. Employ a variety of sentence structures, long and short, but don’t let your sentences become too long and rambling, or they become difficult to read. Effective punctuation is vital in conveying your arguments persuasively; the last thing a teacher or lecturer wants to read is an essay riddled with poor grammar. What’s more, the reader shouldn’t have to read a sentence more than once to understand it.

    You probably already have a tone of voice you use for writing essays, but is it interesting and engaging? Read through some of your old essays and ask yourself honestly whether you find them absorbing. If they’re not, it could well be because you’ve not established the right tone of voice. Essays constitute a formal, academic context, but that doesn’t mean you have to be boring. A confident tone of voice will help show the reader that you know what you’re talking about and reassure them that they’re in safe hands.

    Writing in the active rather than the passive voice is a well-known trick of the trade that writers use to give their writing a sense of immediacy and make it more compelling; you too can deploy this technique in your essays by steering clear of the passive voice (for example, rather than writing “Much work is being done to…”, say “Scholars are putting a great deal of effort into…”). Over the course of an entire essay, you’d be surprised what a difference this makes to your tone.

      Nice article. I think there should be a friendly environment in the classroom so that students don’t feel any fear or hesitation while asking their doubts from teachers. If teachers will assist them properly how to write essays in an effective manner without taking too much stress then it would be very helpful for students to do their homework on time. Many students don’t have adequate skills and some find it difficult to write because of poor grammar. If any student is taking too much homework stress then it’s going to affect their physical as well as mental health. Parents should also take care of these things. If required you can get assignment help from online sources as well.

      I like your post. Your tips are quite useful for any student to improve his/her writing skills. But I want to add one more thing that sometimes students are given assignments on topics that are very complex and require in-depth knowledge. In that case getting help from online assignment writing services is also a good idea for the students who find it difficult to write assignments. It is not necessary that the only reason of getting external help is lack of skills or knowledge, in many cases students don’t have time to complete their assignments. So it is better to get assistance from other external sources.

      I agree that A levels are no preparation for university writing, BUT, surely they should prepare students for such matters as writing in sentences, not plagiarising from the internet and basic time management? This is not a rant about hopeless students, but a plea to 6th form and FE teachers. I’m happy to spend time with students on university level academic skills, but I’m simply not qualified to teach remedial writing. We also face an uphill battle teaching students the difference between paraphrasing and copying, which I am sure that I was taught as part of my English O level…And finally, when you talk to your students about making a revision timetable, could you please emphasise that the night before the deadline is not a good time to start? !

      The tragedy is that we have many talented students who don’t have the basics and so struggle much harder than they should. It’s not the non-traditional students who cause the most headaches but those straight from school with poorish A levels who seem to be missing the skills they need to shine.

      OK maybe it was a bit of a rant, but as class sizes get ever bigger, the opportunities for intensive support become ever fewer.

      I think everything published was very reasonable.
      But, what about this? what if you added a little information? I ain’t suggesting your information isn’t solid., but what
      if you added something to possibly grab people’s attention? I mean How to Write Better Essays:
      6 Practical Tips is a little plain. You might peek at Yahoo’s
      home page and watch how they create news titles to get viewers to click.
      You might try adding a video or a pic or two to grab people
      excited about what you’ve written. In my opinion, it might make your website
      a little bit more interesting.

      Arch Supports are most commonly known to provide support and relief for plantar fasciitis.
      This is due to the positioning of the muscle in the foot and how
      when this becomes inflamed or painful, it is the arch of
      the foot that is the most affected. Wearing an Arch Support
      helps to aid the muscle, taking some of the strain away from it.

      This in turn provides a relief from the pain and discomfort felt.

      However, Arch Supports can be used to treat a number of different conditions, not just plantar fasciitis.
      Anything that affects the arch can be aided by the use
      of an Arch Support.There is a range of Arch Supports available on Shoe Insoles.
      The different types available means you can find the right level
      of support that you require to help aid the condition that you are suffering from.
      Shoe Insoles work closely with the manufacturers
      to ensure the high quality of the product in question, so you receive the best support
      you need to aid your arch.Arch Supports can be adjusted to suit
      the size that you need. If too lose, the Arch Support
      loses it’s supportive properties due to not being able to give the muscle the support it needs.If you
      require any further information, please contact our support team on 020

      I’ve received help from it. But still I have problem in vocabulary. The thing is I do memorize new words a lot. But when I come to write something they stay out of my mind, I can’t use them. So enriching vocabulary power is therefore of no use. How I can get rid of it? To use what I’ve learned.
