Quote an authority on the topic. Example:

In conclusion, costs are rising and financial aid is declining, with the result that many can no longer afford to go to college. If our nation is to prosper, increased government funding for education is essential, even if it requires higher taxes. As Horace Mann argued in his Fifth Annual Report, a nation’s economic wealth will increase through an educated public. It is therefore in the self-interest of business to pay the taxation for public education.

  1. Ending with a question(s). Example:

The fast demanding life has worked an unpleasant alchemy on our health. As changes in our diets and lifestyles became a must, people were launched into a new reality where fast -and to some degree- harmful solutions rule. Fast food and lack of exercise have made their way into our lives, weaving a sinister web of maladies, and worse, threatening of an epidemic deterioration in public health. And so it goes on; an endless cycle of turmoil. The real question is: When will it stop?

Process Essays

A process can be a series of actions, changes, steps, operations, or functions that achieve a particular end or result. A process essay focuses on the “how” rather than the “what.” If the audience is not well informed about the subject, the process will have to be detailed. If the audience is well informed, then the process will have more technical vocabulary and less detail.

Some process essays provide information (=informational), while others provide steps on how to do something (=directional).

Whether the essay provides information or tells someone how to do something, the essay must follow a logical procedure. All items must follow an order, such as what you do first, second, and third.

Since most process essays are generally organized according to time - that is, they begin with the first step in the process and proceed in time until the last step in the process, it's natural, then, that transition words indicate that one step has been completed and a new one will begin. The following signal words can be very useful in chronological descriptions of processes:
