Essay #1: Definition

 

Directions:  The first essay you will undertake in ENG 111 will be a definition essay. You will compose a 5 paragraph essay and must follow all the rules of MLA format. The essay should be 2 pages in length, and include 1 credible outside source of information. Please adhere to all the rules of MLA format when writing your paper; you may check both RMU Rhetoric and ‘course documents’ for MLA format examples.

 

 

In a 5-paragraph essay, include an introduction that provides background on your subject and most importantly, a thesis statement. For the body paragraphs, you will provide three aspects to your definition, and develop these aspects in depth, using examples to support and clarify your definition. Remember that you are educating the audience about your definition and you must provide all the necessary details and information so that they can fully understand. The conclusion will restate your thesis, emphasize your main points, tie up any loose ends that remain in your paper, and synthesize your topic.

 

 

Here’s a sample of a general outline for a definition essay:

 

I.        Introduction

II.      Defining characteristic  #1 (listens)

III.    Defining characteristic  #2 (respects)

IV.  Defining characteristic  #3 (leads by example)

V.    Conclusion

 

 

Here’s a sample thesis statement for a definition essay:

 

A great leader can be defined as someone who listens to all viewpoints, respects others, and leads by example.

 

 

Other definition essay topics: Global Warming, love, faith, verbs, philosophy, effective or ineffective communication, ethics, morals, employee motivation, humanity, literature, poetry, music, motherhood, fatherhood, technology, etc.
