When you write your next essay, imagine you’re a lawyer (shudder). You have a thesis: my client is innocent, which you tell the jury along with how you intend to prove it in your opening statement. During the trial, you show the jury your evidence for this claim explaining each time how it supports your clients innocence. This is followed by a concluding summary statement that reiterates what you have accomplished with your evidence. The essay is similar. You introduce a thesis, explaining how you intend to prove it, and in the body of the essay you show us the evidence, frequently referencing your thesis. Conclude by summarizing what you’ve accomplished and what it means, again referencing your thesis.
