Basic Directions On Writing An 8th Grade Descriptive Essay

A descriptive essay is exactly what it sounds like. It is an essay that describes something to your audience. You can write it on any subject but you would likely want to choose a topic that is a little complex so that you have enough things to write about to meet your length requirement. You will want to give your reader a picture of what you are describing with your words.

Here are some basic directions on writing a descriptive essay:
  1. Choose a topic
  2. The first step in the process is to choose a topic to write your paper on. It is important to make sure that you choose a topic that you are interested in. That way it will be easy and more enjoyable to write your paper.

  3. Create a thesis
  4. Your thesis is the main point of your paper. It should be the focus and all sentences and ideas should focus on proving your thesis statement. You should make sure that you take your time and work to make this statement perfect. It may change a few times along the way as you gain more and more information.

  5. Get an example
  6. Get a sample paper to use as a guide. It will allow you to know how to format your paper, explain to you how your paper should sound, and give ideas of what to write your paper on.

  7. Explain using five senses
  8. You will need to paint a picture with your words and the best way to do this is to write using your senses. Explain what things sound like. Explain the things that you smell and what it smells like. Try to appeal to all of the senses in your writing. This will help the audience understand what you are writing about.

  9. Create an outline
  10. The next thing that you can do is create an outline that will help you organize your ideas so that you can present them in a logical order. It will help you determine whether it will be better to discuss one supporting topic over another.

    6. Structure your paper

    Make sure that your paper follows a specific structure. You can use a common five paragraph to write this paper. Include an introduction, three body paragraphs each expressing a different supporting topic, and a well thought out conclusion.
