During college I had a professor, Dr.G, who helped me understand what the teachers in High School failed to teach. This way of writing an essay was not crated by Dr. G, but he inspired a way to write an essay faster. Dr. G pointed out the main problem with essays is organization. Hopefully this will help anyone in high school whom has yet to write a proper essay. Also I wrote this because most of my teachers said an essay is "beginning, three topics, end." I find it to be useless and a waste of time. If you get this as an answer from a teacher this ible is like a breath of fresh air.
