Choose a person, event, or thing that is part of popular culture. Write an essay outlining the reasons the event, person, or thing has become part of popular culture. As you develop your essay, use the following process:
- Write a brief outline stating your position on the topic. Jot down notes for three or four arguments that support your thesis.
- For each point in your outline, write one or two paragraphs providing supporting details and examples.
- End you essay with a concluding statement that reflects your opening paragraph.
- Assess your essay. Did you clearly state the thesis in the introductory paragraph? Do the supporting paragraphs contain evidence (facts and details) proving the thesis? Is your argument reasonable and persuasive? Is your conclusion clear? Revise your essay.
