Building Great Essays Through Preparation, Practice, Performance, and Polish!
Book with reproducible pages
Step-by-step sections titled “Preparing to Write,” “Practicing the Basics,” and “Piecing an Essay Together” equip students for structured lessons in seven types of essays: argumentative, cause and effect, compare and contrast, descriptive, informative/explanatory, reflective/narrative, and response to literature. Research paper skills are taught in an additional section. Students also learn how to evaluate essays (their own and other students’) and differentiate between high- and poor-quality writing. Includes how-to handouts, daily lesson plans, student worksheets, examples, graphic organizers, quizzes, checklists, rubrics, and more.
