How to Write a Problem Solution PTE Essay with Template

we’re back to writing essays now I took a survey last week and you guys voted for problem-solution essays then let’s make it happen now we’ve already covered the agree/disagree essays we’ve already covered the two views essays and if you’ve missed that I’ll link it below now you might actually feel a little lost following along with my essay template videos because you might not have seen the outline video or the brainstorming video so I’m just gonna link all of the essay related videos below so you check that out and if you feel a little bit lost that’s gonna help you understand what I’m talking about now I’m also gonna link the document that we’re going to be using in this video so if you want to print that out and follow along feel free to do so now if you want a copy of the actual templates hit me up on my Instagram I’m gonna link my Instagram right here just hit me up send me a message and I will send you all of my Pte structure essay templates free of charge now the structured templates they’re suitable for those people who are comfortable with writing sentences or they don’t feel like memorizing a whole lot of things right and that’s perfectly suitable for that but if you are more comfortable with memorizing everything and having the entire essay pretty much already written out and you just got to memorize it well I got a solution for that as well that is called my for essay template now that is actually only available in my courses so if you’re interested in that you gotta check out my website now with that said y’all ready for this let’s get into it [Music] all right so let’s jump right into the essay template because you already know how to get a copy of these templates you have seen these before I’ve done the structure and then the brainstorming so let’s jump straight into it this is what the template looks like we will structure it in a very similar way as the previous essays and again this is more suitable for people that don’t like to memorize too much and they want to write by themselves so as you can see here you will write your own simple sentences I won’t be asking you to write anything that’s out of your comfort zone and once you are done with that again you just insert it into the template the template is not something you complete not something you read and complete the rest of the sentence it’s not that kind of template so before we even go to the first step what do we do first before we even think about the essay itself what I want you to do first is type the template out first so let me show you what that looks like and here it is as you can see the essay template has already been typed out now this is what you want to do on the actual exam before you start even writing the essay you type the template out first and you just start filling in the information afterwards you should spend about five minutes typing out the template now some of you might be thinking well how do you even know what kind of essay you’re going to be getting well that’s the reason why if you compare all of the essay templates that I created depending on the topic because you see I have already talked about agree or disagree two views and this one is the problem solution how do you know which one you’re gonna get well first of all most of the essays will be agree or disagree sometimes you’ll get something different like this one is problem solution so what if you get that well the only thing that ever changes is probably three sentences at the most so if that’s not the essay you get you can just change three of those sentences now I ask for myself every time I take the exam I don’t rely on the essay to help me get to 79 so I don’t really care about the essay score because I can get my writing points from the listening and the reading I always write agree or disagree I don’t actually care if they ask me agree or disagree I will always write agree or disagree and sometimes I get a really bad essay score but I don’t get under 79 I will Oh get over 79 because of my listening and reading and that’s why I say I don’t really rely on the essay to get my points but if you need the essay to get your points then you want to try and answer the question a little bit on topic cuz usually I am completely off topic now what that’s it you have the essay template typed out and now we will go to step 1 and what is step on we want to identify the essay topic in order to identify the body topic because this is the brainstorm so let’s read the essay topic and it is what problems can be created when people spend too much time on work than their personal life and that is the question they’re asking us now down here they’re asking us to solve that so again this is a problem-solution essay but we do need to create the noun the essay topic and by reading this what is that noun normally I would just take one word like time or even work but that really doesn’t tell you much about the essay topic so this one right here I might have to take the phrase because the verb is also part of that topic so I will go all the way up from work to spend and I’ll use this I’ll highlight this for you I’ll use this as the essay topic now spend is a verb so we can’t use that as a noun so hopefully you know how to change a verb into a noun this will require you to know a little bit about parts of speech but I’m talking about right now if you ever have a verb and you need it to be a noun because now we’re gonna create a phrase a noun phrase what do we do we would change this to ing spending too much time on work now that becomes a noun phrase so we can use this later on once we have the essay topic established it is time to create the body topics body one body to body one is the problem body two is the solution that is the topic that they want us to talk about as you can see here for the topic I don’t need you to write sentences we just need to create a noun a noun will be enough to create that topic for the body so we need to create a problem that comes from spending too much time on work I just think of a word like I’ll say exhaustion just type it right done exhaustion is the problem that comes from spending too much time on work all right and then now let’s just finish off the topics let’s create a solution for exhaustion what is something we can do to solve the problem of exhaustion let’s think of another noun let’s say I’ll take this we’re taking breaks all right now I’m not trying to write anything compelling I’m not trying to be printed in a newspaper we’re not going to impress anybody with our writing we just want to fill up the word count with good grammar right and as you can see here that is the topic sentence or the topic of the body and every time we write you can see by now every time we write we will have four sentences in the body all right we will be writing four sentences but the first one is already written for you you will see so now we go to the supporting reasons inside the body the supporting reasons right now I’m still just going to write down some words to give me ideas right it’s the structure of it right now you want to be familiar with the structure so when you get to the real exam you don’t need to think about boxes and stuff like that so right now we’re just practicing step by step you will not do this on the actual exam you will just start writing the sentences but by then you will already know what the sequence is so now I always ask you the same questions if you compare the past essays you’ll see it’s always the same questions so here how or why does it happen what is that referring to exhaustion so why or how why I was thinking why so I said that first I’ll give you the why let me think I’ll say a lack of sleep right why are they exhausted well they have a lack of sleep I will create a sentence later for now that’s my idea and then next what is the result you can either say a result of exhaustion all right you can say for this or you can say as a result of a lack of sleep it doesn’t really matter what you write so for me I’ll just say poor performance done do you agree I’m not using anything compelling right no difficult vocabulary words think you know all of these words if you have a lack of sleep you have poor performance at work right we’re talking about work so that’s the first thing that I thought of and then now here example I always tell people to write a specific example it doesn’t have to be true just name something you can name a country if you don’t know anything else but since they’re talking about work talking about businesses well I always use these big names or I’ll say something about Apple and then now let’s talk about solution taking breaks well then ask the question how do we how do we take breaks or why do we take breaks oh how do you take breaks is that something somebody has to teach you I hope that so let’s just say what we can do how we can do it let’s say we set a break let’s set a break when every hour I think that’s something that we should do right I’m not sure next we after we set break what is the result what is the result either of taking breaks or setting a break what do you think what can be a result of that I would say we take break we can rest reset reset I’ll say reset I said type reset and I was thinking rest I don’t know what the hell I was thinking but reset is good reset the mind I was gonna say rest of mine but hey either way I don’t care and then the next one example again we still talking about work companies so let’s talk about the end of me let’s talk about Google whatever you say whatever you make up doesn’t matter again who’s gonna read this nobody and that is our brainstorm we have created the ideas that we want to talk about and the next thing we want to do would be step two what do we do create sentences with these ideas and that’s what I want to do now but because I’m just gonna be typing out sentences this is where I’ll fast forward it alright you don’t need to hear me think out loud because I talk a lot of when I’m thinking but yeah I’m just gonna type out the sentences hopefully you can see me type out a simple sentence and then I’ll go in and add some adjectives or maybe adverbs but I’m not trying to write a complex sentence one verb all right I’m not gonna link any sentences if you want to you can but remember I’m trying to show you how to do this the easiest way as possible without trying to overwhelm yourself by writing difficult sentences so let’s get to work and done that was step two I created sentences from the words that we brainstormed all right and as you can see here for the first sentence I didn’t write a sentence I just used that noun you will see it later because in the template all you really would want to do is put the noun into the first sentence and then I created sentences from the words that I thought of in each body right as you can see here we talked about a lack of sleep and that’s here I created a sentence for that I went in and added adverbs and adjectives to to increase the word count all I care about is the word count here we talked about poor performance and then I talked about that here poor performance and then I added productivity just in case just to increase my work count a little bit all right and lastly I’ll talk about Apple and I made up something about Apple does this have to be true hey you’ll know and then we move into the second body the second body here taking breaks same thing and then set a break every hour and I established that right here and remember a verb becoming a noun at this setting and then here says reset the mind and I wrote the breaks will reset the mind and then I made up something about Google and that is it that is the second step where we created the sentences now we can go into the third step and the third step is to take each sentence I’m gonna scroll down I’m gonna take the sentence and the words that we have created and we’re gonna put them into the template that we have already typed out and as you can see here just that noun right so we know what we’re gonna put here now and now from the topic we already know that as well the noun from the topic is spending too much time on work and then we’re gonna put the noun from the body topic and you’ll see I’ll put it in step by step so what I’ll do first is I’m gonna insert the sentences that I created along with the noun for the body so what I’m gonna do is basically finish off the body while I’m doing that I’m gonna speed up the video again as well basically I’m gonna be copy and pasting and formatting you don’t need to hear me talk to myself again for that and then when I’m finished I will slow back down and we’re gonna talk about the intro in the conclusion y’all ready let’s do this and we are done hopefully you notice that what I did was basically take all the sentences that we wrote as part of the brainstorm and the sentence creation and then I took it and copy and paste it in the bodies there’s gonna be four sentences each sentence is already spoken for and as you can see I didn’t really care whether or not the sentences worked grammatically when I put these sentence in here because it’s supposed to work if you write your own sentence a complete sentence and you put it in here that’s gonna be enough I didn’t make up a sentence in race half of it and ask you to complete it that’s the other templates that you find on on the Internet we’re not required to do that here and once you have that body remember I separated the sentences so it’s easier for you to read but we should put this into paragraph form so I’ll do that for you right now and you can see that this is going to be our body 1 and body 2 and once I finish with this I will show you how to do the introduction and the conclusion and there it is so even though the introduction is first I’m gonna do the conclusion first all right and the reason is because most of the information is already there so for example right here I ended in the previous tutorial about the two views essay I always write the same thing here it is expected that this trend we’ll continue to increase in future doesn’t matter if it makes sense or not that’s what I always write so you don’t actually need to create your own sentence there at all and then here do you see paraphrase body one body two well we already have those sentences created so let’s just copy and paste that now here I need a pic is it a cause or problem we’re writing about problems so let’s copy this sentence right here right because we need this sentence and then we need to put it here now I’m not gonna use the whole thing though I’m not gonna use the whole sentence I am gonna shorten it as we look at it but right now it’s a complete sentence and then you see here are we writing something that’s similar or opposite or it’s a solution so it should be opposite so I’m gonna take I don’t need your opinion here just take this this is the complete sentence itself we’re gonna copy it and we’re gonna paste it here but remember we’re not gonna keep the whole thing it’s just for the time being I’ll put it up here and then now let’s start cutting it down so the main problem related to spending too much time on work is exhaustion let’s change this let’s say the set of problem let’s just say the main issue okay the main issue related to spending too much time on work is exhaustion let’s just leave that well we don’t need a paraphrase it too much just change words around if possible now here we have but the best is the best approach to overcome spending too much so this whole thing this whole thing is connected to this right here right it’s the same noun if we have the same noun we don’t have to write it twice what can we do pronoun just put that and now extraordinaire that arm completely we’re not trying to overwrite this we don’t need to write 299 words or anything like that so there you go so the best approach to overcome that which is this spending too much time I work is and I’m just gonna cut that out as well and just say breaks and now we have these two sentences created and the last one we need is right here okay and it’s the same up here so first of all there are three words that you want to choose from and which one is that I usually just pick the first one who cares whatever you want alright so we need to pair phrase the topic sentence and we’re gonna grab that real quick but first let’s just finish this off which one is it a problem world cause it’s a problem so let’s just get rid of that and then this right here we need nouns from the topic we already know that it’s this right it’s this I’m just gonna copy it every time you see the yellow you see that with writing the the noun from the essay topic so in the following essay I will discuss right here I’ll read it for you in the following essay I will discuss some of the biggest problems associated with spending too much time on work before suggesting possible solutions complete sentence no grammar mistakes all we did was just put it nouns I don’t want you to think too much all right so now the last part let me just make the paragraph smaller the last part it’s this right here we need to create our own sentence and what is that sentence it is this okay but if you don’t like to paraphrase most people don’t okay they don’t like to think of their own sentences basically so now we can basically copy their sentence right but right here it’s a question no doubt about it it’s a question so how do we change a question to a sentence okay it sounds like a difficult question right how do we change this to a sentence well first of all what makes this a question this word right here the what the what makes it a question so what if we just removed the what what if we just said problems can be created when people spend too much time on work than their personal life damn that’s a sentence that you know is that easy just by removing the who what where when that creates your sentence so let’s move that down we’re gonna copy that and paste it right here alright there’s the sentence I’ll put everything together afterwards so here we have a complete sentence I am NOT asking you to complete the template once again don’t look at the template like you need to complete something you don’t just put a complete sentence afterwards and you are good to go now this is quite long so let’s see if we can shorten it so problems maybe we can say once again Isis for issues just a paraphrase issues can be created let’s say issues occur okay when people when workers they say workers right um spend too much time on work let’s just leave that let’s just get rid of this done let’s just say that okay one of the most controversial issues today relates to how issues occur when workers spend too much time on work there you go no grammar mistakes right so now let’s move this up and make it a paragraph and same thing here let’s move this up and we have a paragraph right and then the last thing is here we need to paraphrase another sentence the thesis where is it it’s right here it’s the same one all right so let’s take this down here and see if we can change some words around so I’ll paste it right here issues occur let’s say arise issues arise when let’s say staff I just changed some words around no we use staff earlier let’s just change it around use it here since spend too much time spent too much time instead of saying I work I’ll say at the office how about that something related to work right and there is your paraphrase I basically copied their sentence and try to change a couple words around or deleted some words that is okay now let’s put this into a paragraph and what do we have here what do we have that is your si orale si how many words do we need to write in the PT academic essay do you remember we need to write between 200 to 300 and I try to keep it as low as possible and as you can see here we have 220 220 I wasn’t worried about the word count I just tried to write single simple sentences and then I input it into the template one by one I didn’t even read this I’m not even sure if this makes sense but I know I’m on topic I’m talking about the things that they asked me to talk about am i making a compelling argument I have no idea am I gonna try to write 290 words to try to prove a point hell no and that’s how I write the problem/solution essay all right ladies and gentlemen and that was the problem-solution essay and I used my structure template to write that essay once again if you want all of my structure essay templates just go to my Instagram send me a message and I’ll send you all

APA Annotated Bibliography

hey welcome to Robert’s library this is Amy and I want to talk to you guys about doing an annotated bibliography in APA style first thing I want to do is show you my contact information so if you have any questions during this assignment or project anything related to research or formatting please do let me know the first thing that I’m gonna do is go to google and I want to talk to you about the Purdue owl APA page so I’m just gonna type that in that’s how I always get their Purdue owl is a really extensive up to date resource that will tell you how to format your citations in APA style the left hand side talks about you know in your reference list how to list different types of sources so if you are citing an article from an online periodical if something that would be under electronic I think websites are probably on here as well scrolling down yeah look chapter section of a web document should be one somewhere for a here we go non periodical web documentary report you could say emails there’s lots of different options on their books of course different types of print sources other yep so interview stuff like that so that’s all available there Purdue owl APA so that is citing you know like here’s an example here just the reference entry for an item I actually went in I saw in another tab here I’ve googled APA sample annotation and this is from the Purdue owl as well but you can see here what they have is they’re gonna have the you know reference entry and then they’re going to have an annotation which is a brief summary of the work and how it might relate to your project so anyway a lot of times students want to know what an annotated bibliography looks like so here is an example of an entry for one and here I found an image of a page the where you would see multiple entries listed on a page so you can kind of see there’s the citation and then the blue section shows the annotation and I think typically about 90 to 110 words is what you want to aim for on the annotation but you do want to talk to your teacher and just ask them if they have specific guidelines for that so anyway that’s what that would look like

Introduction to APA Format

oh good day everyone this is Chris back again with the Ancients thoughts collar so today I thought I’d do something a little different than what I’m gonna do is I’m going to review a paper that I had to write as a part of some humanities courses that I’m taking and this paper of course isn’t going to be an APA format and I thought that I would go ahead and introduce everybody to that I assume that they’re probably a lot of people are already pretty familiar with APA format but I’m sure there are a lot of a lot of people that are maybe a little confused or not quite sure of some of the the formalism that APA dictates and I’m certainly not going to be able to cover all of it but at least I can do a basic introduction then this is a paper that got very high remarks it was accepted and and graded very well so I’m reasonably assured that the format that I use in this paper would be fairly universally accepted this is going to be an essay there are different types of papers their papers are weak you present research there are papers where you are perhaps arguing for one point in another or making political statements and so on and so forth this is just going to be basically a general essay that that we’re talking about here so kind of a run and mill paper if you will ok so what is APA APA is a way of formatting our paper or a way of making our paper the look of it the mechanics of how how the elements put together and this is done through the APA or the American Psychological Association if you remember back in the day and I remember this back in a day when I first went to college we wrote most of our papers and what was known as MLA or Modern Language Association format however it pretty much seems like most of the papers that you’re gonna run across today will be in APA format it’s almost a universal type of format so as most of my papers of course are written in APA format so it’s it’s the one that I’m going to go ahead and introduce everyone to okay so let’s go ahead and get started okay so here we have the first page of the paper and this is called the cover page and it’s some couple things that I want to talk about here if you look at the very top of the page I have some text in in what’s known as the header so you’ll hack chily have to actually edit the header of the paper and what you’ll do is you’ll you’ll put and the font that you want to use is you want to use Times New Roman 12-point font and have that a double spaced throughout the paper obviously that won’t apply to your header but you still want the header to go like this running head with our capitalized and head capitalized and a colon and then the name of the paper and all capitalized so I have running head with only the Arden H capitalized a colon and then the name of my paper which is an eel classism a return to order and that is all capitalized and then if you can see to the very far right I have a 1 that’s the page number you won’t see the page number on every picture that I have on this presentation but your assumed that every page is numbered 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 and 8 I believe they’re a pages paper this is a fairly short paper you will need to format it that way ok so then we move on and centered in the the cover page you’re gonna have three essential types of information now some professors may require you to put more information they may require a date or they may require the the name of the class and some other additional information if that’s what they require go ahead and put that in this is what was required of me so you can see I have the name of the paper a neoclassicism comma return to order the person who wrote the paper that’d be me the author in the second line and the third line is the college that I’m writing the paper for Western Governors University you want to have one inch margins all the way around and again you want 12-point font Times New Roman and double-spaced okay so that takes care of a cover page I’m going to move on to the abstract now again this comes right after the the cover page you can see that I have my running head here I have my abstract and think Reader’s Digest think about when you when you do an abstract think about basically distilling your entire paper down to its major points and the major thesis of your of your paper and just think about giving the reader a Reader’s Digest version of basically what your paper is gonna be about this is this is what it is strip down no frills no no fanciness this is exactly what you’re gonna get if you read my paper you can see I have my abstract here and it reads this essay will explore the major similarities between classical Greek and Roman art and the neoclassical art period major characteristics of the classical Greek and Roman period the neoclassical art period and a picture of a well-known sculpture from each period will be discussed in addition the major reasons for the re-emergence of classical form spirit and desire for order and artistic creations of the neoclassical period will be described so to the point and exactly the major points that I’d be discussing in the rest of the paper again 12-point font Times New Roman you want abstract centered and then you will do your abstract paragraph you will not indent this paragraph however it will not have an indent okay so now we move on to the body of the paper I can you can see that I get into the main body and I have the name of the paper centered above the body so neoclassicism return to order and then have my first paragraph the paragraphs in the body of the paper will be indented okay so you can see that I have my first paragraph this is an introduction this should be sort of catchy and should appeal to your audience obviously my audiences is a humanities audience so I need to appeal that so my introductory paragraph is is sort of like the thesis in that you are basically introducing what what you want to introducing the topic that you are going to be presenting and and kind of trying to get the the audience involved with what you’re doing so in my introductory paragraph it reads the class claret of Greece and Rome is heavily influenced Western art throughout much of court history one period of art history however attempted to directly reproduce the form and spirit of classical Greek Roman art this period was known as a neoclassical period or sometimes called neoclassicism while the neoclassical period occurred many centuries after the fall both ancient Greece and ancient Rome the influence of these ancient cultures was clearly evident neoclassical works of art this essay will discuss the major similarities between the artistic creations of these two periods particularly particularly excuse me in the form of human sculptures and will describe several the concepts that led to the neoclassical movement so again the the thesis are the thesis was more of a rundown of the entire paper whereas the introduction is is kind of catchy and and really is a is a way of conveying of what I want to get across what I want the reader of the paper to to feel or experience or think about when they get done with this paper okay and then I move in to the body of the paper and we’ll talk about the body in a little bit so I have my first my paragraph underneath the introduction and this is where I start talking about a classical Greek and Roman art spanned a large period of time for the 8th century to 5th century so I’m giving some background information many individual styles a classical Greek and Roman art existed there are many of their amalgamations from other cultures so I’m just talking about some of the history kind of what led to it I’ll talk about to get these the early periods a classical Greek art and they focused on cons and perfecting human form later periods and Hellenistic periods focus less ideal subjects and focuses more on sensuality pain agony death people began to demand excitement from their art and here I have my first in-text citation this is a book I used and so what you do this there are two are authors for this I have the author’s their last name author and Ellora no comma 2008 that’s the date the book was published that if at all is in parentheses and then period at the end of it again this is I did not directly cite I paraphrase phrase what they said and put that in my own words but I still have to put that there now there are some bits information in here that you can see I did not cite for example up at the top it’s a I talked about the the the first paragraph underneath the introduction I talked about ancient Greece and Rome spanning several centuries from the eighth century BC to the fifth century AD and some people might say hey Chris you know that that’s kind of some specific information perhaps it you should cite that and I would agree to a point and this is where the the boundary conditions if you will of your paper come into play and part of this assignment was that I would be presenting this this paper would be read by an audience that was felt well-versed in the humanities and since that’s a case somebody well-versed named Hannity’s would know it would be very common knowledge how the how long the Greek and Roman empires influenced spanned the 8th century BC to 5th century AD would would be very common knowledge to that group of people now if I was presenting this paper to people that weren’t well-versed in humanities then I would probably look at doing a citation cite this somewhere because that would not necessarily become a knowledge to people who weren’t well versed in humanities so you need to be very careful about who your audience is and if you are presenting information that is well-known for your audience that you know the audience should know that then you don’t necessarily have to cite it so in this case I didn’t because part of the boundary conditions of my assignment was it told me that the audience that read this paper would be well versed in humanities okay so moving on to the body here so this is where I give an example of ancient Greek art and this is a bronze sculpture I would like to say a little something about keeping it simple I like to follow what’s known as a five paragraph essay format when I write my essays it’s very simple and it’s kind of like running home to mom it’s it’s safe it’s sound it’s secure and I can run home to her and she’ll take good care of me and this is taking good care of me in all my years of being a student and that is five paragraphs first paragraph is introduction three paragraphs are the body and then one paragraph conclusion and I more or less stick to that general format and that works very well for me it’s very orderly it’s it’s a very logical way to design a paper and I really like doing it that way and you ideally you do want to have a paragraph for each main point you know whenever you you change so I started out talking about ancient Greek and Roman art and then now when I move on to neoclassical art I need to start a new paragraph because I’m I’m talking about a different point as you can see I was required to have M photographs of a sculpture from H to period because I’m actually comparing them so here I have a photograph of the Greek bronze sculpture Poseidon of Artemis yon and you can see that I have the name of that sculpture I told a patent yeah in italics excuse me and if that was a book or any other work of art I would have to do that as well you can also see underneath a picture I have in parentheses France comma 2006 period what that is is that is an in-text citation for the photographer who took this picture and I’ll talk about how I cited that picture and some of the things we need to be careful about when we use pictures in our papers and actually I’ll just talk about that right now if you use a picture in a paper you need to make sure that you have the legal ability to do that now I will say that most of my photographs say there’s my Loon clock yet again most of the photographs that that I use I actually get from the Wikipedia or Wiki Commons now I do not absolutely do not cite Wikipedia as a reference for information just pictures and the reason I do this is I can click on pictures in Wikipedia and it’ll take me to a page and it’ll tell me who the photographer of of that art is who the photographer that picture is and if and it’ll tell me right there straight up if I can use that photograph or not or if I have to get some special permission so it’s very handy that I can kind of cherry-pick and find photographs that don’t have any limitations on who can use them there they’re free and they’re open for use and I’ll use those photographs from those artists that makes my life a lot easier and I don’t get any any kind of legal issues that way and obviously that’ll make your paper writing a lot better so that’s how we deal with paragraphs in text okay so I just here I’m just talking about the sculpture Poseidon Artemis alone I talk about how it basically tie that into what I talked about earlier with the ancient Greek and Romans and kind of how they how their gods at least in the early periods were kind of a perfection of the human form and you can see this this guy here is Poseidon or Zeus if you’re talking Roman you know he’s a pretty read perfect looking dude there he’s got you know all the muscles and he’s you know big and probably at one point was holding a lightning bolt or something like that getting ready to throw it you know really heroic really stoic fine chisel you know perfection of the human form there so I thought there was a good picture to represent the classical Greek art certainly early Greek art the Hellenistic art was a little different but it was still very detailed and and so on and then I a move on to neoclassical art I just say it came to prominence during the late 18th and 19th centuries again I did not I did not cite this information simply because my this would be very common knowledge to my audience and I just talked about this period was characterized by desire of artists to reproduce the form and spirit of earlier Greek and Roman classical art this desires related several concepts and then what I do is for these several concepts I actually do a list and I do 1 2 3 4 etc so you can see how I formatted that it’s indented in there’s one and then I make my point and then I move on to 2 so my first point is the underlying classical principle or the reason and resonated strongly and artists the neoclassical movement this is line the fact European society entered Age of Enlightenment or classical principles of order reasons we’re popular among many people okay and then my second point there you go again it’s indented to some people did not enjoy the newer types of art such as baroque and Rococo or gogo art was seen as elaborate decorative and whimsical which was in direct contrast orderly in fine detail characteristics of classical Greek and Roman art Baroque art focused on exaggerated motion that contrasted to the detached and often stoic artwork of classical Greek and Roman works of art so here you can see I’m tying these two concepts in I am tying this into classical Greek art which was one of my major points three ancient Roman ruins were discovered in a couple of different areas during the 1700s that led to new insights and explorations of classical Roman culture and art 0.4 a popular and influential book known as thoughts on the invitation of Greek works of art and you can see that I have that in italics written by the Europeans scholar show on John John wickel Minh was published in the mid 1700s and then I go on to a new a new point how all these concepts led to a reinvigorate appreciation for classical Greek and Roman art culture and philosophy neoclassical works of art we’re often Age of Greek and Roman subjects often portrayed the subject in a heroic setting art itself is often serious and stoic in nature the neoclassical return the refinement of ancient Greek and Roman art is clearly appreciated by looking at the sculpture and again I have that italics Perseus and the head of Medusa as shown below there we go so there I have a picture and again you can see how I really tied this in real nicely to the ancient art and you know it’s very similar to the Poseidon that it’s kind of an idealized human form his standing you know well chiseled really stoic kind of stuff going on and then just right ancient Greek form Spears clearly evident the artists focus on detail a subject represents a perfection of human form as seen in some ancient Greek or Roman works art first uses also portrayed and he wrote a stoic stance not unlike the portrayal of Poseidon in the ancient Greek sculpture that was discussed earlier in this essay so again I’m just continuing to tie these in and then I move on to the conclusion and this is where I tie everything together and I hit my main point so you know yet again so the person reading this can kind of make that just that final connection so in conclusion classic Greek and Roman art has influenced much of Western art of ancient Greeks and Romans value order and often focused fine details in their artistic creations this is clearly evident we’re depreciating classic Greek and Roman sculpture while ancient Greek and Roman heart hasn’t kind of got a little overlap here with my pictures okay so okay one art period saw artists replacing the order in fine detail of ancient Greek and Roman civilizations the neoclassical artists saw order of beauty and fine detail of classic Greek and Roman works of art ancient Greek and Roman artistic sensibilities resonated well with the neoclassical movement during the age of European enlightenment the neoclassical artists appreciated classical Greek and Roman order as a nice contrast from the newer forms of art that some thought was too whimsical and lacking in order additionally discover of ancient ruins and the release of a popular book about the imitation of ancient Greek art helped to usher in the neoclassical movement neoclassical appreciation for classical Greek and Roman works is easily appreciated by looking at neoclassical sculpture neoclassical sculpture focuses on detail order and often uses ancient Greek and Roman subjects in both serious and stoic poses and that is the end so I’m restating my thesis tie everything together and I review the main points of my paper putting them all into a paragraph form or all within the same paragraph so it’s all one underlying idea and you can see that my use of wording is interesting I try to I try to be very specific in the words that I choose and you can see in some parts where I could have taken a real easy easy path and said that the artists liked Greek or Roman heart and instead I tried to use more unique wording and and try to use a little better Burbage and that just rounds of paper out makes it sound a little more intelligent and maybe maybe a little pretentious I suppose but again I think that people people reading it you know that I hopefully that that resonates with them and that I kind of went through that extra took that extra step to to kind of put in some unique wording for example I used a resonate instead of like you know we know that they liked it but it resonated very well with them and you can just kind of see how my verbage is you know uniquely my own ultimately but I think that that really helps with the flow of the paper and kind of helps beef it up a little bit if you will okay so here we have our work cited so again work cited the very top on its own page it’s centered and then I cited three different sources so the book I will talk about the book and you do want these in alphabet alphabet achill order and this will be from author so the first thing that you’ll see an APA work site is the author so the book here at the top I have the two authors alt or comma T period and Janeiro or one narrow comma R period the authors and obviously had more authors that have to put those in or just two authors here or the editor if there’s no author and then in parentheses I have the year the date the date the year the book was published 2008 period the name of the book the art of being human : the humanities is a technique for living ninth edition period and that is in italics and then I have New York comma New York that’s where it was published and then : the publisher and this is purist Pierce Pearson laudanum publishers okay so the photographs a little interesting so what I did is I actually took the name of the photographer of the work of art so not the artist that did the work of art and in fact some of these ancient does the Poseidon of Artemis and for example we don’t really know who did that we have guests kind of what Island maybe what what three or four islands it may have come from but we don’t really know who did it but so I actually went with France are and then in parentheses I put who this France are is what what is this relation to this and in this case he was a photographer put that in print brackets with a period two thousand six brackets with a period parentheses and then brackets the name of the work of art Poseidon of Artemis Ian and then after it brackets I put well what was going on and that is photograph this is a photograph of this actual sculpture and then where I got it from retrieved the date I retrieved it September 12 2011 from : and then the web address HTTP colon forward slash forward slash Wikipedia so on and so forth did the exact same thing for the second sculpture Perseus in the head of Medusa you can see nygean M the photographer 2009 Islam has taken Perseus and head of Medusa the name of the artwork the photograph of the sculpture I retrieve that September 12 2011 , from : and the URL of the website where I got that picture from okay guys and this concludes this short discussion on introduction to writing essays in APA format hopefully you guys found this helpful take care and as always thanks for hanging in there
