Essay Organizational Help

You do not have to organize your paper in a standard 5 paragraph essay. I taught that form just to teach the basics, but once you have grasped the basics, feel free to break from that habit. These resources teach you how.

A part of organizing your essay is effectively inetegrating your quotations into your paper. I created this guide to show you how to do that.

  • Integrating Quotations

If you are not ready for the more complex essay structure and need help with basic organization, you can use my organizational guide. It follows the typical essay structure, but also shows ways to break out of the five paragraph essay.
