Why Construct an Essay Blueprint?

An essay blueprint is almost always written as part of an academic exercise. Although a good blueprint requires clear and concise writing, as an academic exercise, it is primarily a test of your reading comprehension skills. A blueprint demonstrates your ability to identify central arguments and key concepts and to restate theoretical concepts in your own words and around your own claims. For this reason, blueprint construction also helps to develop the reading skills you need to effectively prepare for essays and exams.
