Introduction: Possibly open with a personal anecdote, observation, and/or rhetorical questions on your topic.
Be sure to Define and explain your broad topic, and then prepare to narrow down. “There are many, many ways to _______. Here are just a few.”
Middle: 3 (or more) classifications/categories of your broad topic. These are not simply equal parts of a whole. You need to rank or rate them. Maybe order them from minimum to most important. Or harmless to most severe.
For Each classification/category:
Label/Title in bold (subheading)
Quote / Epigraph (set the tone of the broad topic or each classification) Define (you decide where within the section)
Possibly compare/tie back to your previous classifications
Be sure to sum up your overall topic and what the awareness of these classifications can bring to the reader. Or, your reflection on this topic’s impact on society.
Possibly refer back to your opening anecdote, observation, or rhetorical questions. Possibly include a final quote (as epigraph or embedded quote)
If you do not include a final quote/epigraph to off-set your conclusion from your last classification, use some other visual cue (final subheading, extra space, ***)
5 paragraphs minimum, TYPED, MLA format
