The first thing you need to do is RESEARCH. You don't even know if you're for or against your topic! You will definitely have a tough time writing 6 pages on something you barely know about.
Once you've done some research and have picked a side, make a pro and con list. Use those pro's and con's to support the body of your paper.
Tips for better writing:
-Your paper doesn't always have to be the typical "intro, 3 body paragraphs, and conclusion." Spice it up, put some more body paragraphs into your essay by getting more specific and doing more research.
-Use a thesaurus and dictionary, but don't overdue it.
-Use varying sentence structures.
-Don't "try to sound smart." It usually ends up making you look dumb. Just talk as yourself, but don't talk in slang or "everyday" terms. Write as if you were writing a letter to someone really important; you don't want to look dumb.
-Use correct grammar. Make sure you know the difference between the words, "their, they're, and there."
-Never use the words, "I, me, my, you, your, yours." If you want to say the word "you," replace it with the word "one." If you replace it with the word "one," make sure your sentence doesn't look like this: "If one chooses to have a surrogate mother, they will need to make sure everything goes as planned." The wrong thing with that sentence is that "one" is singular, while "they" is plural. Make sure you match things up.
-Never use contractions in a formal essay. Write things out, for example the word "don't" will change to "do not."
-Periods go INSIDE quotation marks, no matter what. So do commas, and any other type of punctuation. Example of a wrong quotation: "I love cats". Example of a right quotation: "I love cats." Also, if you are quoting something inside of a quotation, it would look like this: My friend Billy said, "Yeah, the other day my mom was all like, 'Billy, go clean your room!'"
There is so much more I can say, but these are just a few basic things to get you through writing six pages. If you seriously take your time on this and follow my rules, you'll probably get a pretty decent grade. Good luck!
