When reading the essay prompt, identify exactly what the question that you need to answer in your essay is. For the first sentence of your introduction, describe the topic in a way that will grab the reader’s attention. You should then write three sentences, each describing one of your three points about the topic that you’ll discuss. Your final sentence should sum up exactly what your answer to the question is. The rest of the essay is going to be supporting that thesis statement and proving your opinion (using the three points you mentioned already).
