1 2 3The Correct Way to Write an Essay
At Warrant Officer Candidate School (WOCS), essays are used as tools to help you improve by learning from your experiences and mistakes. This essay is an example of how you’re to write essays; it’s not necessarily applicable to other writing assignments. Using this format and following the instructions in this example when you write essays arecritical to your success, since not doing so could be interpreted to mean that you don’t have the ability to follow simple instructions. Such an interpretation is totally relevant to expectations of Warrant Officers’ performance in a non-training environment. For example, if you fail to follow technical manual instructions for a particular task, the results could be damaged or destroyed equipment or injured or dead Soldiers. Formatting guidance for your essays is very specific. Establish a 1-inch margin on both sides and at the top and bottom. Put the information included at the top of this page on the first page, aligning the information so the longest line is flush with the right margin (not the right edge) of the paper and other lines are flush with the left end of the longest line. If you’re using a word processor, simply tab the longest line over so it’s as close as possible to the right margin and then tab other lines so they’re flush with the left end of the longest line. Center your title on the third line below the date; include the title on the first page only. Use “title case” (i.e., capitalize the first letter of each major word). Begin the body of the essayon the 4 line below the title. Indent paragraphs, do not skip lines between paragraphs, and, if hand writing your essay, hyphenate words as necessary to ensure that margins are as even as possible. On the second and subsequent pages, center page numberson the bottom margin. Put at least least two lines on the last page of your essay. Add your signature element as shown on this example: start on the 5 line down from the last line of the essay and center the left margin of your signature block. Cadre Officers will grade your essays on format and grammar correctness, organization, and content. If your essay doesn’t meet standards in these areas, you’ll be required to correct and resubmit it. Therefore, it’s important for you to follow this format, to organize your material, and to use correct grammar and spelling. A technique that you might use in checking your grammar and spelling is to read your essay aloud. Organization of your material should aid readers by logically leading them through youressay. To be most effective, your essays should have an opening 1 2 3 4
