It is to be written in a serious tone rooted in realism. It is the most important part of the essay. Here, the main theme is revisited and loose ends are tied up.
Test-takers summarize the essay thoroughly and energetically. If the people are already rich, how can it stand to reason that the ruler alone is poor? The implication was that the Duke's proposal to increase the taxation was due to the insufficiency of his revenues for state expenditure; to insure the sufficiency of state expenditure, then, what could take precedence over measures to insure sufficiency for his people? With inexhaustible supplies, what anxiety is there for lack of preparedness in emergency?
Even if these were insufficient, the people will naturally supply them in full. Remember that you need to gather all related information before you start writing.
Start asking yourself questions about your topic and your title and see if you can answer all of the questions. If you cannot--or you need to fill in some missing information in the history or background--use these questions to guide your research.
Look for the answers in peer reviewed journals or books. Write down key information while you are taking notes and be cautious when using internet sources. Conclusion Specify this with restatement of thesis once more. One sentence for each body paragraph, surmising its assertion. Rewrite hook and thesis into a conclusion sentence. Last sentence must transition to general statement about human nature.
You can see why this frees you up as a writer; essentially, the format requires just six original sentences and the rest is nothing more but reiteration and support. It works for a paper of words just as much as it does for one of pages. It's self-generating, self-reinforcing and self-fulfilling. Could you ask for anything better? Just like the tactics of the great generals, by laying out the square in advance with clear, orderly lines, you insulate yourself from the chaos of improvisation.
You mark the boundaries now so later you don't have to. Each paragraph is given a singular purpose and its only duty is to fulfill it. No longer is the professor or teacher grading you in terms of the prompt, because you have redefined the dynamic on your terms. By marking the boundaries out early, excellence is achieved simply by filling them in with your sentences. You take the prompt and make it your own. You place the reader in the middle of the square, protected by all sides, and methodically move them forward, defending doubts and objections as they arise.
With the strongest thoughts at the introduction and at the conclusion, you make it so that the reader -- or the soldiers, as historian VD Hanson pointed out -- "might be led by the former and pushed by the latter. The middle is just details.
The thesis is the entire paper-as it is, and always should have been. Write the body paragraphs This is the part of the essay that you are supposed to explain, describe or argue the topic.
The main ideas you wrote down on your outline becomes separate paragraphs. Each paragraph carries the main idea. The paragraph begins with an introductory sentence which carries the main idea.
Supporting ideas follow suit in sentence format backed with relevant information and examples. Direct quotes must also be cited using the required format style. Write the concluding paragraph This part must be given much importance as the introduction part.
But history narrates awe-inspiring stories of advanced civilizations and their contribution to art, music, science and many other areas. This will be the meta-theme of the paper. Test-takers summarize the essay thoroughly and energetically. You can see different introduced ideas and how the writer has supported their points with evidence.
If you cannot--or you need to fill in some missing information in the history or background--use these questions to guide your research. Your thesis statement must state the topic and the main argument of your essay. Because one rejects indiscriminate love, one may be thought to be escaping for the error of Mo Zi and heading towards righteousness. The middle is not an extreme: but if one holds on to the middle without applying the proper measure, then this is also an extreme. That is why it is difficult to understand that Zi Mo was holding on to an extreme. Each paragraph is given a singular purpose and its only duty is to fulfill it.
You have the chance to restate your thesis statement and once again support your stance. Food and delicacies, beefs and drinks are abundant for entertainment of state guests; carriages and horses, arms and equipment are enough for the preparation of wars and defense. For you find a strong thesis statement, you can look your schema.
The point of a paper is to make an assertion and then support it.
It's self-generating, self-reinforcing and self-fulfilling. Thus there was Zi Mo who understood the errors of Yang Zi and Mo Zi, and thereupon mediated between the two in order to grasp the middle course.

This will help keep you on task for turning your paper in on time and will help you to avoid the night-before-panic. And if you object too much to rigid structure, consider the freedom this truly allows you none of which is ever permitted in the horrible " Schaffer Method ". If one understands that one should not sacrifice oneself for others but cannot give to others on an individual basis, then there is no danger of loving indiscriminately, but on the other hand those who follow the Way and strive to perfect the whole Empire will also be seen as approaching indiscriminate love and consequently one will not be willing to act in like manner. I discovered these tactics myself as a student, reading in awe of the mastery of ancient military masters and put them to good use. Thus there was Zi Mo who understood the errors of Yang Zi and Mo Zi, and thereupon mediated between the two in order to grasp the middle course.
So your conclusion part begins specific and moves to the general.
Isn't that what is truly important? Final Argument This part is used to go over the main theme of the essay again. What Was My Secret?
