Created specifically for Ms. Bielecki's ENC courses, this page provides a brief introduction to the parts of an academic essay. (Click the tabs above for help with other aspects of writing, including process, audience, purpose, style, tone, rhetorical modes, research, citation, and grammar.) Scroll down to find supplemental resources on thesis statements, introductions, support (body paragraphs), transitions, and conclusions. Also, find links to online writing labs (OWLs) and embedded videos, as well as information on how to get HCC's free tutoring in person or online.
This page is designed to be a helpful supplement to the course instruction and Canvas materials, not a replacement for them. For specific details on assignments, see our Canvas course.
