1. The Topic
The topic of your essay is the general category
your essay is about. Either write the topic your teacher has assigned or
the topic you have chosen in the space provided. What do you have an opinion
about? What are some things that interest you? Topics are just general
categories--school, fishing, parenting, hunting, cars, womens rights,
racial issues, the law, etc...
Type the topic of your essay in the box below.
2. The Position
What is one thing about your topic that you believe to be
true, and that you wish to argue?
You may already have a position in mind, or you may just have
a general topic you know you wish to work with.
