Before writing such a type of essay, you should know all the details of your assignment. You should clarify the length and font size.
So it’s time to choose the topic of your essay. Try to make the right choice. Some pieces of advice:
- Don’t choose too narrow or too broad topic. For instance, the topic “The history of rock music” could be too broad. It will be hard to present your thoughts clear enough. At the same time the topic “The history of X band “could be to narrow. The best variant would be “The history of American Rock music”
- Topic should be interesting to your audience.
- The perfect variant is when your topic is interesting to you. It will make the writing an informative essay much easier because writing will be exciting for you.
Then you should research your topic well. Use only objective sources and try to look into your topic. Note what you have found. A notebook will help you not to forget the most interesting things and systematize your ideas.
Brainstorm. An ideas map will help you to distribute all the information into groups. Write your topic in a circle in the middle of a paper and then take down the most interesting ideas in circles near the topic. Then connect them with the lines. Write as more details as you can around each idea. Put these details in circles and connect them with the lines too.
