by Becton Loveless As you progress through school, you'll be required to write essays.
And the farther along in school you get, the more complex and demanding the essays will become.
If you've already selected an essay topic, and developed an outline or diagram, you now can decide what points you want to communicate through your essay. The first component is the topic, and the second is the point(s) of the essay.

It's important that you learn early on how to write effective essays that communicate clearly and accomplish specific objectives.
An essay is a written composition where you express a specific idea and then support it with facts, statements, analysis and explanations.
When you first start writing essays in school, it's not uncommon to have a topic assigned to you.
However, as you progress in grade level, you'll increasingly be given the opportunity to choose the topic of your essays.
