Writing the Informative Essay
Let’s look at the drafting Guide
Use the guide to ensure you have all of the information.
Write each paragraph separately so that you do not blend points or major components.
Introduce the essay/belief (briefly)
Provide a definition of the belief. This may be more descriptive than a definition. You could define each major word if you think others will not know the meaning or understand how you are defining it (i.e. boot straps, cringe culture, self-reflection, happiness)
In these paragraphs, you seek to provide answers to the Journalist Questions: Who, What, Where, When, Why, and How
In this paragraph, you compare and contrast what you found to your experience.
Wrap up the essay by creating a call to action for others. Should they consider putting this into their belief system? How?
Example Introduction Paragraph
The United States was founded on beliefs from a multitude of cultures. These beliefs are enriched further by our own experiences and history, creating unique beliefs related to the citizens of the United States. The belief that anyone can move past his economic class can be found in common quotes, such as “Pull yourself up by the bootstraps,” “The strongest man in the world is he who stands most alone,” and “Our lives are entirely up to us”. This belief, while common in the United States, is not as commonly believed across other cultures nor does it represent the common experiences of most United States citizens. Pulling yourself up by the bootstraps is not possible nor has it ever been, even in the United States.
Note: All examples are from a student paper. While they are not perfect, they establish a basis for discussion.
Example of a Definition Paragraph
A belief is an acceptance that a statement or idea is true or that something exists. Beliefs come to us through experiences, family, and other outside influences. No one person has a single belief. Everyone has a belief system, composed of many beliefs. The belief system affects our values, attitudes, and behaviors, meaning it forms our decisions. Beliefs can be changed based on new information. Beliefs are not just words; they are part of our biochemistry. While beliefs are based on our own experiences, they are also formed based on what we are told is/was/will be true by an outside “authority.” The belief “pull yourself up by the bootstraps” is a belief we are told is true, few of us have experienced it.
The term “bootstraps” refers to the type of shoes worn when the belief “pull yourself up by your bootstraps” became common. While many of us do not wear boots, we do understand what the term and belief means: we are responsible to make our own way, to change our economic status through our own, individual efforts.
The idea that a man is individually responsible for his well-being is not special to the United States. In fact, the phrased, now belief, began in Britain in the 1800s with the popularization of a fictional story about a German nobleman (Bologna). However, this belief found its current wording in the history of the United States. The belief began as the phrase “pull oneself up by one’s bootstraps,” and referred to pulling oneself over a fence or that someone has proposed a “ludicrous task” (Zimmer). During the Western Migration, the phrase and belief changed meaning. Most men wore boots because they were rugged enough to handle the rough terrain of the newly founded settlements. Men were responsible for the well being of their family, thus, they were responsible for its economic standing. Many Americans, and the many immigrants who made up the migration, believed that by moving west they could improve their lives, especially economically. Pair this with the distrust of government, which was in place at the time, it is easy to see how Americans believed they were individually in control of their futures.
The term became associated with self improvement, over time. In 1927, Britain’s Sunday Times published an editorial ridiculing the headstrong American belief in self-improvement as exemplified by “the American bootstrapper” (Bologna). In the early 20th century, the phrase and belief became pervasive in the American culture and was found in scientific journals, political speeches, criticism, and pep-talks (Zimmer). Over time the belief began to mean that anyone could elevate themselves without outside assistance. The meaning, then, shifted from relating to an absurd task to something that was accessible. In the late 20th century, the phrase and belief is commonly associated with conservative discourse related to self-reliance. The belief and phrase is a common idiom used to express the ability to make one’s way by one’s self.
This history of this belief does not match my own experiences. When considering how careers are paved in the 21st century, it cannot be said that any one person is responsible for his or her own improvement in economic status. While a single person may have a desire to “pull themselves up by their bootstraps,” the reality is that they need to network, make connections, and depend on currently established persons and institutions. Without this network and series of connections, the desire has no path to maturity. In the 20th century, many a person believed they moved up their corporate ladders by their own efforts; however, when you look closely at how promotions worked, you find they were based on number of years with a company or institution. The most talented or best qualified individual might never see a promotion simply due to lack of tenure. Today we see individuals getting political positions where they have no experience simply because of who they know. “Pull yourself up by your bootstraps” simply cannot be true, based on anyone’s experiences.
Americans should not forego the idea of improving their own economic existence as something they have control over. If they do not believe they can improve their circumstances, they are left without hope. They need to consider that improving their circumstances relies on others just as much as their own desires. Furthermore, they need to let go of the idea that they don’t need others to make their way in life, and they need to understand this need is not a weakness. Atfer all, America was built through a collective effort.
