How to Write a Perfect Consideration Essay

Usually, the key to success in writing an academic essay is to make sure that it has an argument, which is being consistently proved throughout the paper. However, this is not the case when you are tasked to write a consideration essay. For this type of papers, a strong argument is simply not enough. There should be a story that can captivate attention of the audience. It should make a reader want to finish reading as soon as possible. Of course, not boredom should be the reason for such a desire but rather an interesting plot and intrigue about its development.

In the film Amistad, the reason for a story being needed is vividly explained. Theodore Joadson, an ardent abolitionist played by Morgan Freeman, attempts to convince John Quincy Adams, performed by Anthony Hopkins, of necessity to take the case of Amistad slaves. Trying to assess the case, Adams asks, “What is their story?” When Joadson does not understand the question, Adams explains that the successful outcome of the case is not possible if it is based merely on laws and facts. People behind it should have a story in order to appeal to the jury. In other words, people cannot relate to the facts. Therefore, a story is always necessary.

Luckily, if you have a good argument, it is not difficult to turn it into a story. All you need to do is to organize the ideas properly. There was a case when students had to write an essay about eating habits, which are prevalent in their families. Among a number of papers that looked more like the lists of what people eat, there was a single radically different essay. It was a story about a family moving to another country and trying to preserve its eating habits or, better to say, traditions. The student told about a conflict between generations, i.e., those who were not ready to accept changes and those who were tempted to plunge headlong into a new life. There is a strong argument about changes in eating habits being detrimental to family unity. The student managed well because understood that discussing any topic, there is always an opportunity to disclose a problem, explain conflict and its resolution, or, in other words, tell a story.

Surely, there are those who think that there is no room for stories in an academic setting since they are more appropriate for entertainment purposes, in belletristic writing, to make kids fall asleep, etc. If you are one of those who consider that stories no longer fit modern realities, only one word may convince you of the opposite, and it is “money.” Dollars, or any other currency, are, in fact, just the pieces of paper with some ink on it. Nevertheless, everyone believes in money being valuable simply because we have been told a story. Just a declaration made by a government called to attach value to something would never worked as it, for example, happened with the German mark after the World War I. It works with US dollars only because of the story. What is more, the world economics functions only because most people believe in one tale.

Another example of stories being omnipotent is the stock market. Many people assume that it operates only because it is based on mathematics and impeccable logic. However, it is nowhere near the truth. The stock market is fully dependent on stories about making money. Basically, someone presents a detailed description of an idea about a product or service and the way he/she is going to turn it into profit. The bright examples are Amazon, CRA, eBay, and PLUG that managed to compose a compelling story, thus attracting investors. The fact that these companies became so prosperous does not mean that they did much better than others do. It only implies that they are skillful storytellers. Moreover, stock market crashes once people stop believing that it works well. Then, with the help of another story, they are persuaded that everything is fine. As a result, the market works well again, and stock increases in value even though the numbers were the same a moment ago. v

Literary essays are also stories from a certain perspective. Their authors tell about reading or writing a book. The first approach is conspicuous in the works of Richard Rodriguez and Ralph Ellison. Reviewing Adventures of Huckleberry Finn by Mark Twain, they both tell the story about own experience of perceiving the novel as well as associating and comparing themselves with main characters. They reveal their understanding of what Twain wrote assuming that someone else had the same thoughts. The second approach implies reading several texts of the same author in order to notice some patterns and parallels between different literary works. Once these commonalities are spotted, essay writers tell the story about the writing process. The authors of the texts under the analysis might not even know about the patterns and read the tales about themselves. In such a way, a literary essay may even become a session of psychoanalysis.

Stories are around us. They are the start and end of everything that happens. What is more, the life itself is a story. It is unavoidably present in everything, and if your consideration essay is an exception, a good grade is not likely to be obtained. Try to show that there is something more behind the text than just a desire to get an A.
