In constructing the essay, we will address the following objectives:
- stating a specific problem in the controlling idea
- explaining how the problem was solved
- providing specific details to describe each attempt to solve the problem
- using transition words to link ideas
- using concrete verbs
Start by brainstorming a list of possible topics. Narrow down your choices and create a web or idea map to generate ideas for your essay. If you are to write this effectively, your essay must adhere to a specific structure that lays out your problem, explains different attempts to solve it, and finally describes the ultimate solution.
