Questions & Answers
What do you think of the topic, “What career can I do when I grow up?” as an English essay topic?
Here are some other versions of this question:
1. What should I do to prepare for a career?
2. What is the best career for someone like me?
3. What are the top career choices for a person in high school to consider?Helpful 53
Would “Is growing up a trap?” be a good essay topic?
Your question is interesting but somewhat unclear. This would actually make a good title for an essay but the topic question needs to put your ideas into context. A good question could be:
Children all think that only grown-ups have fun, but is growing up really as good as it seems?
Then your thesis can be something like:
Growing up is really a trap because adulthood is not only privileges but also many responsibilities.Helpful 29
How do I write a position paper on this topic, “Do nurses care in this country?”Start with a story about a…Helpful 3
What do you think of, “What rules should parents have for their teenagers?” as an English essay topic?
You can start this essay with a great story about a conflict between parents and teenagers over rules. What would be a really good strategy for writing on this topic is to point out that both sides really want what is best for the teenager and are wanting them to grow up to be a responsible adult, but they have different means for how they think that should happen.
Here are some other topic ideas:
1. How can parents best adjust their rules to let their children learn adult responsibilities and choices?
2. How should teenagers most effectively talk with their parents about changing rules?
3. What is the difference between rules that keep teens safe and rules that are not really necessary?
4. How can parents best instill their own values on their children?Helpful 19
What is the best topic for a quick essay?
To write a quick essay, you need to choose a topic you know a lot about or a subject that you believe strongly in. It helps if you have spent a lot of time thinking or talking to people about that topic. That will let you easily think of things to say. To find that easy topic, follow these steps:
1. Read my list of easy essay topics (these are divided by subjects to help you scan quickly: sports, healthy living, women, education, business, environment): http://hubpages.com/humanities/Essay-Topic-Ideas…. Or my list of Easy Argument topics (obesity/dieting/food, recycling, families, and relationships, technology, aging and retirement): http://hubpages.com/academia/100-Easy-Argumentativ…
2. Find a couple of topic questions you like or know a lot about.
3. Copy these on a Word document.
4. Set a timer for 5 minutes.
5. Just start writing everything you know about that topic.
6. When the timer goes off, look at what you’ve written. Do you have enough ideas to write a whole paper? Do you think you have a lot of examples you can use just from your head? Do you want to write on this topic? If so, then just get started and use my guidelines for How to Write Your Essay Fast: http://hubpages.com/humanities/How-to-Write-Your-C…
7. Not sure you like this topic? Try another topic and do the same 5-minute writing test until you find a topic you know you can easily write on.
I find that when students do this test, they usually are much less frustrated and write a lot more easily. It only takes 5-15 minutes total out of your time, so it is worth it.
Want to know the top 5 easy topics? Here is what my students say:
1. Is technology changing us for better or worse?
2. Is procrastination really a bad thing?
3. How can students best be healthy while in school?
4. Should standardized testing be changed? If so, how?
5. Should you pay attention to what other people think about you?Helpful 12
