Astronomy Essay for High School

Handling an astronomy essay for the high school level is obviously easier than for the collegiate level. Sure, it means a good deal of reading…and more reading with a side of reading and a glass of writing, but will serve well in preparing you for your possible academic writing career at that level and this is a good thing.

“I suppose so.”

That’s the spirit! With that kind of enthusiasm you’ll get this paper done quickly! There are three main areas to look at here.

Research

First thing to know about doing an astronomy essay: the subject of astronomy is ridiculously broad. Sometimes it’s assigned and left to be intentionally broad for you look for your own topic or area to write on. In other cases your instructor will be on their game and actually assign you a topic to explore. If your instructor is in group B then they saved you plenty of time researching and you can just dive right in and knock that out.

If your instructor is in group A, then you’ll have to dig for some topics of astronomy to narrow the field greatly.

Here are a few suggestions on topics:

It’s important to take notes on whatever you find out about these topics to better help you in making a thesis statement.

Reflect

You always want to reflect on the information you’ve collected and ask questions. Take note of your questions and answer them. Also take note of points raised in coming to your conclusion. It is the conclusion and the path to that conclusion—along with facts to support both—that will make up the bulk of your essay.

When handling other essays on different subjects or different kinds of essay, reflecting on the subject before researching also serves as a good way to narrow the subject to manageable topics.

Writing

This includes drafts, citations, bibliographies, and the actual point of your essay. Here you will also need to use proper formatting per your instructor’s directions and be sure to have a strong introduction and closing.

Remember: for an introduction, you want to state your thesis statement as well as a brief preview of the essay—the point that will be brought up—with the closing statement, you want a brief review and to make sure the reader knows what your point was and how everything they read related to that.

If you’re doing an essay that is mostly informative—which this is likely to be—a brief review of everything will do fine, but close strongly all the same. If the bulk of your essay stuck with the original point and showed that it was well researched, your closing should be no problem.
