Exemplification Essay Requirements & Guidelines

Exemplification Essay Requirements

Whether you use Microsoft Word, WordPerfect, or some other word processing software to create your essays, save them in one of the following formats: .docx, .doc, or .rtf (rich text format). Doing so ensures I will be able to open and read them.

Exemplification Essay

  • Write a 500-750 word essay using exemplification as a method of development.
  • Before you begin writing, please review the Papers/Projects link in the menu to the left.
  • Do not forget to turn in an outline in the SAME document as your essay (having it at the end of the your essay is just fine).

Writing Approach

Determine exactly what point you are going to make and write it down in precise terms. Think about why you want to make this point. Develop a thesis statement (pages 47-49 in The St. Martin's Handbook). Then choose examples and details that count for something, those that move the reader toward some goal.

Choose the best examples that honestly reflect the group or class they represent. Do not pick examples that do not support your thesis. Also, make sure that your examples display all the chief features of whatever you are illustrating.

Do not give your examples and their details in a haphazard manner; give some real thought to arranging them in the best possible order. You may use order of familiarity, climax, importance, or some other order.

If an essay develops a single example, try to have at least three important things to say about it--three areas of discussion.

For additional resources, review the following links: "Writing to Illustrate (The Exemplification Essay) Workshop".

music, and send and receive directions. In a cell phone device, one can literally do everything.

others. In a nutshell, cell phones have enhanced proper communication between people in
different locations hence, in turn, bringing about positive impacts on human life.
In the ancient society, communication was a major headache for human beings. Since
people relied on traditional methods that were prone to information distortion, very expensive,
and less flexible, the introduction of cell phones has made it easi...
