I need to know how to write a certain type of essay.

I have a essay to write that's due in 10 hours from now and she wants it in MLA format and other specifics but that's not the issue. I need to know how to write an essay like this that's not really argumentative or informative and no real evidence should be cited from trusted sources except myself. I'm essentially asking how do I write my paragraphs. The essay is about making a "Freshman Survival Guide". Since I'm a freshman she essentially wants us to state for incoming freshman what do and not to do to get by but I don't know how I would make my essay. I don't know how I'd structure my paragraphs at all. I'm not used to this type of writing.

You can use similar questions to ask yourself as you frame your paragraphs but for high school freshmen. In your introductory paragraph, you should answer the question, or something similar, for your thesis statement: What do you recommend high school freshmen do and not do to have a successful year? From there, you can frame your thesis statement to something like this: "High school freshmen should do (x, y, z). On the other hand, high school freshmen should not do (or I do not advise high school freshmen to do) (x, y, z)." Then, for each paragraph, you should explain each point—for example, one paragraph for each idea (x, y, z). For example, You should have three paragraphs for three recommendations and three paragraphs for three suggestions of what students should not do during their freshman year. I hope this helps.
