Tips: How to write a Response Essay
A response essay is to provide the reader with to provide the reader with your personal thoughts and feelings on the subject. Therefore, you will use the word "I" while writing the document.
When you write a response essay to tell if you agree or disagree, or you like or dislike with a topic, your introductory paragraph will contain a thesis statement that asserts your point-of-view. The body of the essay will then serve to support your thesis. In other words, your essay will not rely on facts because it focuses more on your opinions. At the same time, you will utilize facts that you know or your own observations to help support your opinion. For example, if you are writing a response essay to something you have read, you might say "In my opinion, the story was very confusing because the author used too many words that were unfamiliar to me and she changed the point-of-view too often."
The conclusion is used to summarize what you have said and to once again state your thesis, or opinion. Be sure to state your thesis in a different way than you said it in the introduction.
