Put those mediocre B-minus essays on the trash pile and level up to A-plus quality. Hopefully, with a little bit of guidance, you can successfully transition from a good writer, to a fantastic one. So put a bit of thinking into your projects, work a little harder, and don’t be afraid to try a few new strategies to turn your essay into a piece that will impress your teacher.
The illustration essay is one where you present to the reader your thoughts or opinions with sufficient backing from data. When you are tasked with crafting an excellent illustration essay on childhood obesity, you should follow the tips below.
The purpose of the illustration essay is to present your perspective, or an opinion you have and support it with sufficient evidence.
When crafting a paper on childhood obesity, you should make one statement about the topic. You could pick something such as “childhood obesity should be considered child abuse by parents because they are slowly killing their child” or “high sugar consumption in processed foods has contributed to rising rates of childhood obesity”. Whatever the statement is that you make, you have to be able to support it with evidence the same way you should back up any other academic essay.
So, if you take one of the example statements from above, that would constitute your thesis statement. From there, you would need to further expound upon your thesis and then use evidence to support it.
If your thesis is that childhood obesity should be considered child abuse, you would need to explain what child abuse is, with evidence from things such as medical or psychological journals, and then explain the damage being caused by obesity using science or medical evidence, and finally perhaps conclude by stating what the roles and responsibilities of parents are such that allowing a child to suffer from diseases or die falls outside of those responsibilities. For this final statement you could turn to legal definitions of parenting or parental requirements as evidence.
This same procedure needs to be followed for the thesis pertaining to high sugar consumption too. No matter the thesis you make, you need to back up your opinion with facts and data.
Once this part is done, you also want to present any other points of view and from there reiterate the evidence you have on your side. This shows the reader that you have done your homework, so to speak, and that you understand all sides in the argument but you still have enough support for your side.
If you need help getting organized, you can create an outline to keep all of your research and ideas in one place. This is a great way to craft a thorough and comprehensive illustrative first draft as well.
