It’s always better when you get to choose your own topic for a piece of writing, but it can be a bit daunting if you don’t know where to start. Luckily, this handy guide can help you choose an interesting topic for your opinion essay for high school.
Before you can choose a good topic for your opinion essay, you need to know exactly what this type of paper entails. Basically, it’s a formal piece of writing in which you’re required to give your viewpoint on a particular issue, with supporting facts and examples. In addition, you need to provide a counter-viewpoint. If you need a more detailed explanation of this type of paper, try looking on the Internet or in your English textbook.
Once you know what you’re in for, you should find a list of potential subjects for your essay. You can look on the Internet, or even in your English textbook. If you can’t find a decent list, try asking your teacher if they can help you find a nice list of potential subjects. If you’re lucky, your teacher will actually give you a list of potential subjects when he or she gives you the assignment.
Now that you have a decent list of potential themes for your essay, you need to narrow it down. You’ll find it much easier to choose a theme from a short list than from your original, long list. Start by eliminating any subjects that you find unpleasant for some reason, such as those that remind you of bad memories. You don’t need to force yourself to write about something you find too upsetting. Next, get rid of any themes that you’ll find difficult to research, because you can’t write a good paper about something if you can’t find any information about it. Finally, cross out any themes that don’t have any meaning for you, or are very boring, because you definitely won’t do your best work if you can’t relate to the topic at all.
Finally, it’ time to choose your topic! Spend some time looking through your short list, and keep whittling it down, like you did with your long list. If you’re lucky, one particular subject will keep drawing your attention, and you’ll know exactly which one to choose.
With a bit of luck, you now have the perfect topic to write your high school opinion essay about.
