Personal: 
Born in Evanston, Illinois, Greta Neimanas got the chance to attend the 2004 Athens Paralympic Games at age 16 when she won an essay contest through the Paralympic Academy Program with a piece called, “What Ability Means to Me.”  It was at the Athens Games that Neimanas first saw Paralympic track cycling in action, and she knew she had to try it. By 2007 she made her first world championship team, and soon she was on her way to the Beijing 2008 Paralympic Games. Now, Neimanas is a two-time Paralympian and two-time world champion who shows no signs of slowing down. 

Neimanas, who was born without her left arm, grew up in the Bucktown neighborhood of Chicago with her parents and two younger siblings. Neimanas is also an avid soccer player, as she played for 13 years before transitioning to cycling full-time. She also enjoys skiing, wakeboarding, kayaking and photography.

Classification essays rank the groups of objects according to a common standard. For example, popular inventions may be classified according to their significance to the humankind.

Classification is a convenient method of arranging data and simplifying complex notions.

When you select a topic, do not forget about the length of your paper. Choose the topic you will be able to cover in your essay, do not write about something global or general.

Consider these examples:

  • Evaluate the best to worst methods of upbringing.
  • Rate the films according to their influence on people.
  • Classify careers according to the opportunities they offer.

You should point out the common classifying principle for the group you are writing about. It will become the thesis of your essay.

It is important for you to use clear method of classification in your essay, especially when you are dealing with subjective categories such as "quality" or "benefit". Make sure you explain what you mean by this term.

To organize a classification essay, the writer should:

  • categorize each group.
  • describe or define each category. List down the general characteristics and discuss them.
  • provide enough illustrative examples. An example should be a typical representative of the group.
  • point out similarities or differences of each category, using comparison-contrast techniques.
