Writing a theme is the scholastic drama of every student, starting from elementary school and middle school, ending up in high school, where profs become intransigent in the most absolute way and it is necessary to be able to make beautiful themes.
It is in fact not only a matter of writing a grammatically correct text in a good form, but also of respecting the rules of the various types of subject and displaying good quality content, with an appropriate language.
There are various types of themes: argumentative theme, expressive theme, descriptive theme, relationship, short essay, newspaper article, historical theme, current affairs, letter, diary, review, text analysis.
For each type of track it is necessary to write an appropriate theme and according to the right rules. Do you want to know these rules and above all want to know how to write a perfect theme? Don’t miss this guide: we’ll explain everything in detail!
THE RULES FOR WRITING A PERFECT THEME
Let’s start with the main rules, and let’s start talking about how to write a simple theme, which is the basis for being able to carry out the different types of themes that will be assigned to us:
Reading the track: before starting to write we read the track well and memorize what is asked of us. If necessary, we read several times, because with just one reading we could miss something.
Scheme of work: once the trace has been read, we prepare a diagram, a ladder in which we will insert everything we will talk about within our theme.
Introduction: it’s time to start writing! We briefly present the topic we will discuss, in a precise and clear way.
Central body of the text: it is the actual theme, the part in which we develop everything that the trace requires. Therefore, following all the directives, we argue the topic, give examples, insert links, investigate, insert some personal considerations (if needed and if the typology allows it).
Conclusion: finally, we conclude our text briefly summarizing everything we have been talking about.
HOW TO WRITE A THEME: GRAMMAR ERRORS
So far we have seen how to write a theme from the point of view of the structure, now, instead, we must absolutely know how to write our text correctly, so as not to make grammatical errors and therefore avoid taking a bad grade!
The first thing to do then is always to go over the grammatical rules, and if we don’t remember something, let’s look at it. Then, we always use the vocabulary, because we may have doubts about how to write a word, or we may simply want to use a synonym.
Furthermore, we pay attention to punctuation: if we are not very good at writing, we use simple and short sentences, taking care to put the commas in the right place (never between subject and verb if there is not an engraved!) And to use correctly the semicolon, dot, question marks and exclamation marks.
HOW TO WRITE AN THEME: STYLE
Finally, the theme style: which to use? We remind you that each of us must have a personal style, but this will have to adapt to the various types of tracks that we will have to carry out.
Therefore, for an expressive text we will use a more subjective style, for an analysis of the text we will use a more scientific style and so on.
THEME OF: REVISION
A passage that should not be underestimated is the revision of the theme, namely the correction or modification of some parts. If the greatest writers correct and modify their texts, why should we write directly in good copy? Therefore, we always remember to write our theme first in bad copy, then we correct, modify, remove or add, and finally we can copy it in good copy.
Now let’s see how to write a theme based on the type of track that the professor has assigned us.
