How to write a nuanced essay
Order of paragraphs / examples when writing essays
Abstract: In an essay that aims to convince the reader and make an impact on it (which also includes a logic flow), is it more effective to use the larger social example in the first paragraph and the smaller, more personal example in the third paragraph?Or the other way around?
Using the following essay format (which I am instructed to follow):
- Paragraph 1 (1st argument, including 1st example, counter-argument, counter-argument)
- Paragraph 2 (1st argument, including 1st example, counter-argument, counter-argument)
- Paragraph 3 (1st argument, including 1st example, counter-argument, counter-argument)
Example 1 becomes a be a great social or historical example relating to a significant event or phenomenon, e.g. B. World War II, colonialism events or any other emotional event that affected many people.
Example 2 is about one smaller / more local example based on how X occurred in our country / community. This is supposed to show the reader how important it is to our lives.
Example 3 is a personal Example showing how X influenced me. This aims to connect with the reader on a personal level.
Is it more effective:
Do you have the larger / social example in the first paragraph and work up to a more local example and then the personal example in the third paragraph? Or
Do you have the personal example in the first paragraph and the larger social examples in the third paragraph?
The larger social examples are arguably more powerful , but the guides suggest we do the smaller ones as well as the more personal ones so that we can 1) make them more relevant to the reader and 2) connect with the reader (as mentioned above). .
What I believe are the pros and cons of each method:
- Option 1 has the benefit of starting strong and building the rest of the essay.
- Option 2 has the advantage of being very concluding (and hopefully affecting the marker by making the last thing you read is the best part of your essay).
What would be more effective in convincing the leader of my argument (which also includes making it flow logically) and influencing the leader (giving him a takeaway message)?

Based on personal experience (I've written a lot of English essays on how x writer shows the y topic in z extract) I would say write the large-scale example first, then limit yourself to specific examples. This is a very logical sequence that the reviewer / reader can follow very easily, and it shows that you understand the subject on both a general and a very nuanced level.
