How to solve the problem of writing essay off-topic
Many children have been learning Chinese for a long time, and they have mastered a lot of writing skills, but they will inevitably encounter the problem of off-topic, resulting in low essay scores, so how to solve this problem? Come and take a look!
Review the topic carefully before writing
If you want to write an essay that is not off-topic, you must pay attention to reviewing the question before you start writing the essay. Review the question is to carefully analyze and understand the requirements of the topic, and clarify the meaning, scope and key points of the topic. Through the examination of questions, we can improve our ability to analyze and solve problems, so that the essays we write are relevant and meet the requirements.
When reviewing the question, we should carefully scrutinize each word in the question, explore their meaning, find out whether there are two meanings, and understand which meaning the question requires to write; In addition, it is necessary to clarify the requirements of the topic for the content and writing of the essay, focusing on the meaning of the "central word" and "keyword" in the essay topic.
The meaning of "central word" and "keyword" in the composition title is different. The "central word" refers to the word that expresses the central idea of the essay topic, which is the object to be described in the essay. For example, "An unforgettable event", "Pleasant vacation", "The person I admire the most" and so on. The "event", "vacation" and "person" in the essay title belong to the objects to be described in the essay, and they are the "central words" of these essay topics.
The "keywords" in the essay title play the role of modifying, restricting and influencing the "central word" of the essay topic, pointing out the focus and central idea of the essay. Words such as "unforgettable", "pleasant" and "admire" in the above titles are the most important "keywords" in the title of the article.
If we do not determine the content of the essay according to the "central word" in the essay title, the essay written will definitely be incorrect; If the essay we write does not fully reflect the requirements of the "keyword", the central idea is not right, and the essay we write will definitely not get a high score.
Reviewing the question is the key first step in writing a good essay, and it is an important step to ensure that the writing essay does not go off-topic. We must continue to practice reviewing questions, improve our ability to review questions, and lay a foundation for writing an essay that meets the requirements of the topic.
Learn to write an outline first
Many children do not write an outline, or are worried that writing an outline will waste time, choose to omit this step, but in fact, the outline is very important!
It is not difficult to write an outline, we only need to determine the beginning, middle, and end after reviewing the topic, and then we can think about what order to write, whether we need to use interpolation or flashback writing techniques, so that we can determine what to write at the beginning; The middle and ending parts are determined in this way, and the basic outline is completed.
Then we can refine the outline: pay attention to the consistency of the content of the article, and try to connect everything together. For example, the above-mentioned essay title "An Unforgettable event", after careful review of the question, we found that the essay we were asked to write was a narrative, to write a thing, and it was an unforgettable thing. Next, we can think about what unforgettable things in life, choose one of them, find the most memorable fragment, this part must need to be described in detail, generally the process of this event, the beginning and end are generally simple description, but you also need to first determine what method is used at the beginning and end, whether to get straight to the point or set up suspense, whether to summarize the full text to write the end or quote the beginning or title as the end.
The next step is to start writing, remember to use the writing skills we have learned, such as rhetoric, expression techniques, etc., through these to write more perfect, you can get a satisfactory score!
