I’ve always liked templates, guidelines, and proper ways to do things. One Proper Way is the formal essay. One thing we should all learn in school is how to construct a five-paragraph essay:

  1. Introduction
  2. Strongest argument
  3. Second-strongest argument
  4. Weakest argument
  5. Summary

There’s more detail, of course, at the link.
