 Chart ("dry" recording)

1. Start the chart with a circle or a horizontal line or whatever shape you like in the middle of the page.

2. Inside the shape or on the line, essays reviews the topic.

3. From the center shape or line, draw three or four lines to the outside of the page. Make sure there is some distance between them.

4. At the end of each of these lines, draw another circle or line or whatever you drew in the center of the page.

5. On each new shape or line, write the main ideas you have about the topic, or the main points you want to emphasize.

- If you are trying to persuade write your best arguments.

- If you are trying to explain a procedure, write the steps to be followed. You will probably need to group them into categories. If you have trouble categorizing try sorting them by the "beginning, middle and end" rule.

- If you are trying to update, you should list the major subcategories under which the set of information you provide can be divided.

6. From each of the main ideas, again draw three or four lines.

7. At the end of each of these lines, again draw another circle or line like the one you drew in the center of the page.

8. On each of these new shapes, write the facts or information that support that main idea.

When you are finished, you have the basic structure for the essay and you are ready to continue.

 Outline (Flowing Record)

1. Start your outline by writing the topic at the top of the page.

2. Then write the Roman numerals I, II, and III, leaving several blank lines between them on the left side of the page.

3. Next to each Roman numeral, write the main ideas you have about the topic, or the main points you want to highlight.

- If you are trying to persuade write your best arguments.

- If you are trying to explain a procedure, write the steps to be followed. You will probably need to group them into categories. If you have trouble categorizing try sorting them into beginning, middle, and end.

- If you are trying to update, you will need to write down the major subcategories under which you can divide the set of information you provide.

4. Under each Roman numeral, write a, b, and c on the left side of the page.

5. Write the facts or information that support this main idea.

When you are finished, you have the basic outline for the essay and you are ready to continue.

 Compose a "Thesis Statement"

 Now that you have decided, at least tentatively, what information you intend to present in your essay, you are ready to write your "thesis statement."

 The "Thesis Statement" tells the reader about what the essay will talk about, and what point you, the writer, want to emphasize.

 You know, of course, what you are going to essaypro about. That was the point. Now you need to look at the outline or diagram and decide which point it emphasizes. What do your primary and secondary ideas have to say about the topic?

 The "thesis statement" has two parts:

 - The first part states the general theme, e.g.

- The first part states the main theme, which is the main topic.

- The construction of a model train

- The model of a model of the Kenya model.

- The second part states the content of the essay, e.g., The modeling of a railway car.The first part states the content of the essay.

- It has a rich and varied history

- requires time and patience

- can solve some of our city's most persistent and pressing problems.

 Once you have formulated a "position statement" that fits this pattern and with which you feel satisfied, you are ready to proceed.
