Overall Structure

The plan below helps to explain the overall structure.

  1. Introduction (the subject or topic,problem, etc. Comments on the way it is to be treated).
  2. Main part (analysis,argument,reasoning and discussion (advantages and disadvantages):

1 main idea (+examples, details);
2 main idea (+examples, details);
3 etc.

  1. Conclusion (summary of the main points in MAIN PART. Own views/opinions and decisions).

An important step in the process of writing an essay (report, project) is the introduction. The introduction, especially the introductory paragraph, is important for a number of reasons. If it is clearly constructed, it will introduce the subject, perhaps with a definition and indicate the structure of the essay by giving an overview of the content in sequence.
