Tips For Creating An Excellent Essay About School Buses
We know what you are thinking. School buses? Who writes an essay on school buses? Moreover, who tells a student to write about school buses? Can one even write about school buses?
Yes, one can.
Don’t you see? School buses: this is so different from all the other boring, bland, conventional topics that you have had to write about until now. What were they? Yes: equality, gender, peace, and so on. But, school buses: there’s one that you could do wonders with.
Really? (Scoffs) How?
Because it is such a seemingly unimportant, local topic that is what one works best with. Look at what students write about world peace, gender equality, or crime in their papers. They are all nearly the same, almost like reiterations of each other. Since the topic of school buses is so close, local, and unique to each child, what one would get would be a delightful menagerie of new perspectives.
But where do I start?
Start by thinking about what kind of essay you want to write. Do you want to narrate, critique, argue, or compare? Once you cross that line, you will see the way forward to pass many interesting topics.
- Narration: You might want to share a childhood memory about the first time you rode the bus to school or talk about the last day of riding bus home from middle school, not knowing how your relationships will change once you enter freshman year in high school. Since such memories are so personal, they will make for excellent, unique essays.
- Critique: Stereotypes exist not only in class and the school cafeteria but also in buses. There might be the rowdy seniors in the back, or the queen bee and her followers who never let anyone take their seats. Why don’t you talk about the entire dynamic of riding the bus?
- Argue: Are school buses really being maintained as much as they say? What are the issues that students encounter? Be the school journalist and talk about them!
- Compare: Public transport versus private cars: Are rides to school somehow affecting social class? Boy, you could have a blast with such topics!
So, what are you waiting for? Brainstorm and get writing! Think of the writing style that suits you best, gather information, talk to people, and before you know it, you will have a masterpiece on your hands!
