    Start with a strong short opening sentence to entice the reader into your article. This is a great chance to use hyperboles and superlatives to get your point across.

    Main body:
    Choose a suitable number of points to cover for the amount of time you have. (6 should be a minimum)
    Each point should have a separate paragraph.
    The opening sentence of each paragraph should get the point of the paragraph then followed by textual evidence. (P.E.E)
    Eg. Of mice and men
    Steinbeck’s use of zealous descriptions to describe Slim, such as divine phrases like, “god like eye” and “see through George and beyond” display Slim’s......
    After the end of each paragraph always look back and check to see if you referred to the question.
    Start with one off your strongest point and end with a strong one.
    Don’t over do it on Textual evidence depending if it is open book or not.

    Conclusion:

    Round your essay off with a conclusion that summaries and exaggerates your main strong point. (Make sure to refer to question!!!)
