You should have downloaded the 10 page Owner’s Manual, the 2-page color-coded Sample Essay & the 8-page SAT Essay Supplement with TWO color-coded SAMPLE SAT Essays. I recommend that you laminate the Sample Essay pages, or at least insert them into a protective plastic sleeve. If you have any problems, contact me at michael@essaywritesystem.com.

In the Owner’s Manual, I have provided the rationale for the individual colors used in the Sample Essay. Each particular color was chosen to make it it easy to associate the content of the sentence with the role it plays in the essay. Thus I designated blue for the first sentence of the first paragraph because blue > big sky > big picture > overall answer to the Essay Question. However, students are NOT going to color their essay papers. The colors are used to provide a framework for A) organizing your thoughts before writing the essay, and B) to ensure that you present the reasons supporting your answer in an organized, systematic manner to avoid “skipping around.”

The colors themselves are NOT etched in stone. If you don’t like the colors I have selected, feel free to choose your own. However, once you have made your color choices, stick with them. Use them in the same sequence on every essay or paper you write. Being able to follow the same format for organizing your ideas while composing the content of each new essay is what makes writing papers easy. The ColorCode System provides a road map for writing an essay. You don’t have to waste time wondering, “Duh! I’m not sure where to start. I don’t know what to say next.” Essay topics will change constantly, but this road map works for all of them. It gets easier each time you write another paper. Onward through the fog!
