Most essays are written on paper with about 26 lines.
The alphabet has 26 letters.
This poster is an amazingly easy way to remember the steps of
writing an expository essay!
The first five letters (A-E) represent things that should be included in
the introduction. (examples: brainstorming, central or controlling idea)
The letters F to U are for things to put in the body, most importantly
the R for the reason, the S for specific examples or supporting details,
and T for the TOE details, (what I use to teach voice.....the thoughts, opinions, and emotions that the writer has about the topic.
Finally, the conclusion is the letters V to Z, which can be things like ending with words of wisdom and an X-Ray....looking for editing
or revising to be done before the essay is turned in as a final draft.
