Process Analysis Essay
For this assignment, you’ll prepare an 1,100–1,200 word process analysis essay that incorporates narration and description, using elements from your process analysis prewriting assignment.
You may not submit this essay until you’ve received your grade and instructor feedback on your prewriting exam.
While you’re waiting for your prewriting to be evaluated, you should do the following:
Review the reading assignments.
Prepare a rough draft of your classification and division essay so that you’re ready to revise when you receive feedback on your prewriting.
Assignment Objectives
For this essay, you must do the following:
Use prewriting, drafting, revising, and editing to write a formal, college-level essay.
Distinguish among different patterns of development.
Apply an appropriate pattern of development to a specific purpose and audience.
Write an effective thesis statement.
Develop paragraphs using topic sentences, adequate detail, supporting evidence, and transitions.
Apply the conventions of standard written American English to produce a correct, well-written essay.
Topic
Your purpose is to illustrate the process you use to manage your time to successfully balance your home, work, and school responsibilities. You should identify and describe the steps you’ve taken and illustrate to your readers how these steps have worked for you.
Tip for Success: Be sure to check out the resources available to you in the Learning Resource Center for videos and worksheets to help you complete this assignment.
You’ll be writing in the first-person point of view because this is your process. Your audience is other Penn Foster students. The goal is to show your readers how you manage your time, not to instruct them on how to do it. Don’t use second person or use “you” to address your readers. While the audience is other Penn Foster students, focus on explaining how you manage your time.
Writing Your Essay
In your prewriting, you focused on what’s happening in your life. For your formal essay, you’ll revise and reorganize your prewriting to create an essay that shows other students how you manage your time when taking online courses, maintaining a job, and focusing on family responsibilities.
You’ll use your prewriting as your foundation, but it will require major reorganization and revision to include the following:
An introductory paragraph with a thesis statement that addresses the purpose of the essay
Three to four body paragraphs that each begin with a topic sentence that identifies a step, tool, or technique you included in your second prewriting paragraph. Each body paragraph should then build on that step, tool, or technique with the narration and description from your first prewriting paragraph. Each body paragraph should fully describe how you implemented the step and the benefits of this step. These steps should be discussed in the same order they’re mentioned in the thesis statement.
A conclusion that reinforces the thesis statement and purpose of the essay.
Note: Use the Process Analysis Essay Worksheet on your student portal to help you organize your essay.
