Definition Essay

Who? What? How? Purpose? and Who?

Definition is a rhetorical style that uses various techniques to impress upon the reader the meaning of a term, idea, or concept. Definition may be used for an entire essay but is often used as a rhetorical style within an essay that may mix rhetorical styles. For example, you may need to use definition in order to fully explain a concept before you make an argument about that concept.

A definition essay is structured around the goal of defining a term, concept, or idea. While you may start off with a simple dictionary definition, your essay will, ultimately, contain an extended definition. There are many techniques you can use to extend a definition in a definition essay (to be discussed further).

An Introduction to Essay: Its Parts and Kinds

Cecilia Manago

An essay is a short non-fiction work about a subject that can be formal or informal in tone and style. It has an introduction that introduces the topic and thesis, body paragraphs that provide evidence and support the thesis, and a conclusion that restates the main idea without introducing new information. There are different types of essays including descriptive, narrative, expository, and persuasive essays. Effective essays have clearly defined elements like audience, purpose, subject, point of view, theme, mood, tone, and style. Read less

Descriptive writing creates a picture of a person, place, thing, or event through details that appeal to the five senses. Good descriptive writing uses sensory details, figurative language, establishes a dominant impression, employs precise language, and is carefully organized. It paints a vivid picture for readers through comparisons, specifics details, and unified themes.

- The document provides guidance on writing a 5-paragraph essay, including the typical structure of an introduction, body, and conclusion. - The introduction should include a hook to engage the reader, a transition sentence, and a thesis statement. The body should have 3 or more paragraphs with a topic sentence, details and examples, and concluding sentence in each. - The conclusion should summarize the main points of the essay and include a "clincher" final thought to leave the reader with. Revision is encouraged throughout the writing process.

The document discusses the key elements of a paragraph including the topic sentence, supporting sentences, and concluding sentence. It provides examples of each and explains that a topic sentence expresses the main idea, supporting sentences develop and explain that idea with facts and details, and a concluding sentence restates the main point. The document also notes that paragraphs should focus on one main idea and have a clear structure with an introduction, body, and conclusion.

This document provides tips for writing a successful essay. It recommends choosing an interesting topic you are passionate about and sticking to the scope. The essay should be planned with a clear structure and flow of ideas. The introduction should capture the reader's interest and indicate the overall purpose and structure. The body should develop the main ideas in a logical, persuasive manner using facts and examples. The conclusion should summarize the main points without introducing new ideas and leave the reader with a clear takeaway. Proper reviewing and proofreading is important to create a cohesive, well-written final draft.

The document provides information on four main types of writing: the basic writing process, descriptive essays, narrative essays, and persuasive essays. It outlines the key steps for each type of writing, including choosing a topic, outlining, drafting, revising, using vivid details for descriptive writing, recreating an experience over time for narratives, and providing supporting points and addressing opposing views for persuasive essays.

This document provides guidance on essay writing structure and format. It discusses introducing a topic and thesis statement in the introductory paragraph. The body should include multiple paragraphs with a topic sentence, proofs, and comment for each point that proves the thesis. A concluding paragraph should restate the thesis and return to a general perspective. An optional rebuttal paragraph can acknowledge alternative arguments. Outlines should include the thesis, rebuttal points, topic sentences, proofs, and conclusion. Body paragraphs should be organized logically using principles like chronology or cause and effect. The document concludes with tips for writing strong essays like avoiding first person and contractions.

Summarizing is an important reading strategy that improves comprehension and retention of information. When summarizing, the key steps are to keep only the main ideas and important details while deleting extra supporting information and paraphrasing the text into your own words. Summaries should be between 10-25% as long as the original text and include the who, what, where, when, why and how of the passage. Improved football helmets were designed by studying woodpecker skulls for their tough, spongy structure to better protect players' heads from injuries.

This document discusses different types of nonfiction essays. It explains that an essay is a brief work that discusses a focused topic and includes the writer's opinions and experiences. It notes that an essayist's style reflects their personality and that the tone or attitude is also important. It then lists different types of essays, including narrative essays that tell stories, descriptive essays that build impressions using sensory details, expository essays that provide information or explain processes, persuasive essays that try to convince readers, and reflective essays that express thoughts and feelings on personal experiences or ideas.

The document discusses paraphrasing, summarizing, and provides examples of each: - Paraphrasing is restating a text in your own words to show you understand the meaning, while summarizing reduces the text and focuses only on the key points and most important ideas. - An example paraphrases how newborn kangaroos crawl into their mother's pouch after birth and stay there nursing until 8 months old. - A summary of tiger sharks notes that they will eat just about anything using their senses of sight and smell to hunt, and their sharp teeth and strong jaws help break shells and bones, making them more aggressive than great white sharks after biting.

Teaching argumentative writing can help develop students' critical thinking skills through inferences, arguments, facts and critical analysis. This powerpoint presentation provides: a definition for argumentative writing; examples of everyday arguments; elements of argumentative writing; ideas about how to organise an argumentative essay; practice prompts and much more!

This document provides information on how to write an effective review. It notes that a review should include an introduction that summarizes the key background information, as well as two paragraphs discussing the plot without revealing the ending. It also recommends including a conclusion with an overall assessment and recommendation. Additional tips include knowing your subject and audience, having a strong opinion, and providing context without using first-person language. The goal is to concisely analyze the content and suggest if others would appreciate it.

This document discusses essay structure and outlines the typical parts of an essay: introduction, body, and conclusion. The introduction should contain a general statement about the topic and a thesis statement. The body should have multiple paragraphs, each with a topic sentence, supporting details, and a concluding sentence. The conclusion restates the main points and leaves the reader with final thoughts. Formal outlines use Roman numerals, capital letters, numbers, and small letters to systematically organize essay content.

Transition words and phrases help connect ideas between sentences and paragraphs smoothly, making text easier to read. The document provides examples of transition words for various purposes, such as providing more information, examples, causes or reasons, results or effects, purposes or reasons, comparisons or contrasts, sequences, summaries, and conclusions.

An essay is composed of an introduction, body paragraphs, and a conclusion. The introduction contains general statements about the topic and a thesis statement. Body paragraphs each have a topic sentence supporting the thesis and concluding sentence. The conclusion restates the main ideas.

This document provides guidance on creative writing. It defines creative writing as expressing thoughts and feelings in an imaginative way.

Definition Essays English 9 Genre Study

For Group Discussion • Think about a situation when you and your parents disagreed about how to define a term (perhaps curfew, good grades, respectful behavior, appropriate language). How did you resolve this disagreement? What kind of evidence did you provide? • Be prepared to share your story and your definition of the term in question with the whole class.

Notice that your definition of a given term may differ based on your: • perspective • interest and/or motivation • personal experience In other words, many terms are defined differently by different people. Who you are, what you want to say, and what you have experienced can provide you a unique definition of a given term.

For Group Discussion • What is the purpose of a dictionary? • Why do they exist? • What is the purpose of Wikipedia? • Do we need it? Why/why not?

Dictionaries provide general agreed upon definitions of commonly used words. • However, some words have many possible meanings and can even have personal significance based on a person’s experiences, interests, and perspective. • Wikipedia provides a larger and more in-depth source of information on people, places, events, and concepts and can even be updated regularly to accommodate new meanings, further examples, and catalogues of information.

For Group Discussion • What are some terms (keep them appropriate) that exist now but didn‘t when your parents were kids? • Are there some words that your parents know but that now have a completely different and unknown meaning between you and your friends?

Language is constantly evolving. For example: • New words are regularly introduced to represent new concepts and technologies. • Existing words often take on new meanings. • Words fall out of use when enough people begin using new vocabulary to represent the same ideas or objects. The fact that language changes so rapidly can also sometimes accelerate or accentuate differences in the way terms are defined.

Read the “Hacker” Essay • What is the central theme/term being defined? • What makes it an extended definition? • How is the text structured? Why? • What is the thesis of the text? Where is it found? • How do we approach issues, ideas, and/or topics differently based on our point of view ? • How do writers use historical, cultural, and/or literary knowledge?

Read the “American Patriot” Essay • What is the central theme/term being defined? • What makes it an extended definition? • How is the text structured? Why? • What is the thesis of the text? Where is it found? • How do we approach issues, ideas, and/or topics differently based on our point of view ? • How do writers use historical, cultural, and/or literary knowledge?

Read “Poverty” • What is the central theme/term being defined? • What makes it an extended definition? • How is the text structured? Why? • What is the thesis of the text? Where is it found? • How do we approach issues, ideas, and/or topics differently based on our point of view ? • How do writers use historical, cultural, and/or literary knowledge?

Always/Sometimes/Never • With a partner: • Add Characteristics from these 3 essays to “Always” • Add Characteristics to “Sometimes” • Add Characteristics to “Never”

What is a definition essay? • A definition essay does just what its name implies: it defines. • The subject is frequently an object, a concept, a type of person, a place, or a phenomenon that requires uncovering or that the writer believes needs to be re-conceptualized (Nadell 428).

Not Just a Dictionary Definition • Unlike a traditional dictionary definition or encyclopedia definition, the definition essay makes clear in a more complete and formal way the writer‘s own understanding based on his/her personal experiences.

Going Beyond the Dictionary • Though dictionary definitions may serve as a starting point, an effective extended definition doesn‘t end there. • As Nadell, Langan, and Comodromos explain, extended definition allows you to apply a personal interpretation to a word, to propose a revisionist view of a commonly accepted meaning, to analyze words representing complex or controversial issues (428).

Learning in the Process • Writers might think that they fully understand a concept when they begin, but as they continue to write, this definition changes: a new meaning is discovered and shared.

Your Definition Is a Unique Representation of Your Perspective • Definitions are also unique to an individual writer. • By selecting particular details and ignoring others, by incorporating stories or anecdotes, and by carefully determining how to analyze their subject, a writer puts forth a definition that is distinctive and specialized.

Adjusting Your Way of Thinking • These essays should be answering questions like: • What does _____ mean? • What is the true nature of _____? • How can _____ mean more (or something different) than people usually think?

Organizational Patterns • Good definition essays incorporate 2 or 3 of the following: • Showing it in relationship to another idea/term (comparison/contrast) • Telling a story that demonstrates the idea/term (narrative) • Divide an idea/term by separating it into parts (classification)

Adding to Our Always/Sometimes/Never • Based on this new information, what else can be added to the chart we began after reading the three model texts?

Topic Selection • For this essay, you will need to choose a topic from a pre-approved list of topics. • The topics that are available for selection are terms and ideas that have been explored in the literature that we read during English 9. • Therefore, you should choose a topic with which you have had personal experience and that you can defend with the literature we have read.

Topic Selection • New concept or terms: What are new concepts or terms im-portant today that may not have existed in the past? What do you see as being a defining issue in the future? • Commentary on society: What is something that people around you frequently misunderstand? (e.g., that popularity isn‘t easy, that families include more than blood relatives, that ―respect‖ is more than what people think it is). • Debate: what are issues that you like to debate, over and over again. What is the major ―unpinning‖ of the debate?

Suggested Topics • Prejudice • Justice • Friendship • Loyalty • American Dream • Success • Wealth • Education • Alienation • Love • Equality • Culture • American

Other Topics • If you have an idea or term that you would like to explore and define that is not on the previous list, you will need individual approval from your teacher. • The main requirement is that you choose a topic that you can support with examples from both your personal experience AND evidence or events in at least one piece of literature that we have read during English 9.

Topic SelectionUnderstanding How Topics Can Be Extended • How might a definition of “life” contribute to the debate around abortion? • How was the definition of “torture” germane to the debate on Guantanamo Bay? • How do different definitions of the word “citizen” influence the immigration debate? • How did definition of the term How do differing ideas of “fidelity” influence relationships? • How do definitions of “truth” and “lies” influence our legal sys-tem? Our political system? Our relationships?

Research • Evidence has to include details outside of your own experiences. This should be a deliberate broadening of your perspective to reach past a common definition. • Consider a variety of texts (articles, books, TV shows, and movies), conversations with others, and other anecdotal details as pieces of evidence.
