Read the list of topics carefully before deciding which one you will be narrowing further (consider how you are specifically categorizing the topic) and then categorizing. 1.  The INTRODUCTORY PARAGRAPH should consist of a strong, specific hook (attention-grabber) and a thesis statement. There should also be a smooth transition or linking sentence from the hook to the thesis statement, which is the last sentence of your introductory paragraph.Also, the thesis statement should indicate your narrowed topic (whatever it is you’re SPECIFICALLY categorizing) and a list of your categories/groups. Watch your phrasing within your thesis. Make certain you are classifying/categorizing your topic— “Ways,” “reasons,” or “methods,” for example, aren’t correct terms to include in your thesis statement (they tend to signify a cause and effect OR a process essay’s pattern of development). “Types,” “groups” or “categories” are all correct classification thesis terms.2.  The BODY PARAGRAPHS introduce each category from the thesis statement and then provide an explanation and/or details/example(s) about the category. You may incorporate subcategories, too.Remember to also follow your thesis’ pattern of organization! Whatever category comes first in the thesis should be the first body paragraph and so on.3.  The CONCLUDING PARAGRAPH will effectively summarize the essay’s premise (you may repeat your list of categories) and provide a good “clincher.”4.  Do not forget to use correct, natural transitions and/or linking passages/sentences whenever necessary.5.  You may use first person POV (I, me, my, etc.), if it’s necessary. Third person POV works well in an essay like this. That aside, you know by now that NO SECOND PERSON PERSPECTIVE (you, your, you’re, yours) is permitted! I will take off a point for every instance of second person I see in your essay.
