I know this site is to help with essays, but do you guys help with essay outlines as well? I am making for my first in class college essay, the prompt is "How does language impact society? " and unless you can think of something better, It made me think about how many teenagers are unsure what they want to do for their future career paths right out of high school and how parents and social influences pressure teens into certain fields, here's my thesis I have so far..

"Language helps teenagers navigate their comprehension of potential career paths."

Now I'm trying to think of body paragraphs.

For my first body paragraph I would like to talk about how parents influence teens career choices , I would also like to add something personal like my experiences of uncertainty in what I want to do, should I include that I personally had career uncertainty, or not ? If so, should I put it in my first paragraph about parental influences or make a paragraph about it by itself ?

Perhaps I could also talk about how gender stereotypes influence which career path teens pursue? Would that be a good idea?

Finally, I need help thinking of topics for my last two body paragraphs.

Thank you very much, I appreciate it the help! I'm sorry if I can't help for essay outline assistance, I am unsure.

Also, the outline can be used on the essay we will write in class so I would like to have something good prepared :)

"How does language impact society?

Ominous, there are a number of ways that you can discuss this essay. For your outline, I suggest that you introduce the topic as a historical, current, and future look at the way language has and will impact our world. For the body, you can discuss the basis of language development in childhood. That of the baby babbling kind all the way to saying your first word. Explain how this language impacted your relationship with your family. The baby talk is something that your parents will enjoy reliving with you and will make for an interesting example in the essay.

You can then proceed to discuss the types of formal languages a person needs to learn throughout life. From the grammar we learn in grade, middle, and high school, all the way to college where we learn field specific languages and discussions. In this part, you can include a historical look at the evolution of language. Probably throwing in some professional opinions about the way language has changed over time and how it might continue to change in the future.

Finally, you can present your own opinion on the matter, drawing upon your readings and personal experience to academically discuss the prompt. Don't forget to develop a strong conclusion that will help close the essay.

These are just some ideas I have to help you with your outline. I hope it helps you develop your essay :-) We are always here to help.

You might have to do some research on this topic because it is a little broad and maybe talk about how you've been influenced by this topic.
