Classification Essay

Assignment: Write a five paragraph, 500-word classification essay on one of the topics below.

Guidelines: Keep the following in mind when writing this essay.

  • The essay must be written in third or first person, depending on topic choice.
  • The essay must be 500+ words in length.
  • The essay must be typed and double-spaced. This is to allow the instructor space to type comments on your paper. If the essay is not double-spaced, the instructor will not put comments on your paper.
  • The following file formats are the only formats accepted. If you submit a file in a format not listed below, your paper will not be graded and will result in a zero for that paper.
    • .doc
    • .docx
    • .rtf
    • .pdf
  • Your paper should have an introductory paragraph with a thesis statement, three body paragraphs, and a concluding paragraph.

Steps: The following steps will help steer you through the writing process for the classification essay.

  1. Make sure that you have read through all of the material in Module 4. This is extremely important for your understanding and the success of this essay.
  2. Choose a topic from the topic list below. (Papers submitted on other topics will not be accepted.)
  3. Use the attached worksheet to answer questions about your topic and to help you with prewriting and organization.
  4. Write a working Thesis Statement. Navigate to the discussion board and post your thesis to the Thesis Statement for Classification discussion. Make sure that you give at least two of your fellow classmates feedback on their thesis statements.
  5. Write a sentence outline using the Classification Outline attachment in this assignment folder. (See Constructing a Formal Outline in your text book, Patterns for College Writing.) Save the outline and upload to this assignment folder.
  6. Write a first draft.
  7. Navigate to the Classification Essay – The Writing Process discussion board and post your concluding paragraph. Make sure to follow the directions for the discussion and that you give at least two of your fellow classmates feedback on their concluding paragraphs.
  8. Revise and Edit your first draft for organization, development, and grammar.
  9. Write and type your final draft of your paper. When typing your final draft, make sure that it is double-spaced. I do not put comments on papers that are not double-spaced. (This means between lines, not between words.)
  10. Submit as separate, labeled files the worksheet, outline, first draft, and final paper through PAWS Assignments (Classification).
  11. Instructions for accessing feedback once your essay has been graded may be found in the Getting Started Module under Content. Feedback takes time and is not instantaneous. Please be patient.

Submit through PAWS Assignment (Exemplification): Each must be separate files and labeled with the names below.

  • Worksheet
  • Outline
  • First draft
  • Final paper

Use of outside sources: We have not yet discussed MLA documentation, so you do not need to use outside sources for this paper. However, you may want to quote, paraphrase, or summarize from one of the essays from the textbook. If you do so, you must quote, paraphrase, and summarize correctly by using MLA documentation. See your handbook for directions. Do not quote more than three lines. Again, using outside sources is not necessary for this paper.

Topic Choices (You may narrow the topics):

  1. Write an email (in the form of an essay) to your professor explaining why your English assignments have been late, presenting three or four kinds of original excuses for your tardiness in submitting assignments. Before you present your own superior types of categories of excuses, be sure to acknowledge the inadequacies of the excuses Segal lists, quoting a few and including parenthetical documentation and a works-cited page. (See Chapter 18 for information about MLA documentation.)
  2. Write an essay identifying three or four categories of legitimate excuses for handing in work late. Use anecdotes (narrative examples) from your own life as a student to explain each category.
  3. Using a humorous (or even sarcastic) tone, write an essay identifying three or four different categories of teachers in terms of their shortcomings – for instance, teachers who do not cover the assigned work or teachers who are more interested in their Facebook account than teaching in class. Be sure to give specific examples of teachers in each category using anecdotes (narrative examples) as evidence.

Please complete all 4 of the files that are said to be completed, attached the files that need to be filled in.
