A List Of Interesting Essay Topics For Middle School Students

So, you need to write a middle school essay do you? You want to choose a topic that will make your essay so triumphant that it will blow your teacher out of the water? Is that it? Or maybe you just don’t have a clue where to begin when it comes to selecting an essay title. Well, it’s easy to feel overwhelmed by the task, seeing as there are so many topics to choose from, but with a little time and thought, you are bound to pick the right one. If you select a subject that you are passionate and knowledgeable about, this will certainly help. The passion will always come across in your writing and the more you know about something, the better you’ll be able to explain it. You also need to make sure that you can back up your statements with plenty of references, so when it comes to deciding on your theme, make sure there are plenty of sources for you to use.

Make a list of different areas that you’re interested in and then detail specific topics under each one. For instance, your areas of interest may be politics and art- which you could then break down into particular subjects like: the Declaration of Independence for politics or Picasso’s Guernica painting for art. You should then whittle down those subjects into even more refined topics. Let us say you’ve decided to write an essay about Guernica- you may arrive at a narrowed down topic title of: Why Guernica is heralded as the greatest painting about war.

It’s also a great idea to research what other middle school topics have been chosen and what kinds of areas you could look into. Here’s a list of some great ideas, covering various subjects, to help you along the way:

  • Why school uniforms should be abolished in middle school.
  • Smoking should be banned in all public places.
  • Why The Lord of the Rings appeals to adults as much as to children.
