How to write an informative essay

Most of the work on an informative essay is done before you actually sit down to type.

  1. Select an appropriate topic.
  2. Research and gather ideas about the subject. See what you already know about the subject as you uncover other areas you still need to research.
  3. Make a list of these important facts. Be sure all the facts are accurate. This is a good time to craft your thesis statement as well as a topic sentence for each fact you'd like to include.
  4. Create an outline that will organize your facts in a logical way. After this, you'll be ready to make your first draft.
  5. Write your essay based on the outline you've created. Ensure that one section naturally flows into the next.
  6. Proofread and edit your work. Editing is an important step for any writing project. Reading your essay out loud will help you notice areas where your writing may be unclear or awkwardly worded.
  7. If possible, have someone else read your essay and offer their ideas for improvement. Of course, don't forget to pay attention to grammar, punctuation, spelling, capitalization, and other errors as well.
