Product Description
This advanced level bundle of vocabulary for writing includes three great lists that will help your students elevate the content, description, and organization of their essays. It is appropriate and rigorous enough for 11th and 12th grade students and includes: 1) Essay Prompt Verbs which will help your students pick apart the writing prompt and determine exactly what the response requires; 2) Essay Vocabulary which includes more than 300 words that guide students in pinpointing the exact descriptive character trait, emotion, tone, or mood that they want to discuss; 3) Transitional Vocabulary which includes appropriate transitional words and phrases for 15 transition situations and will allow your students to successfully organize thoughts, sentences, and paragraphs.
Print out a class set of each list on different colored paper, slip them into sheet protectors, and allow your students to use them as they draft and revise. If you make these lists available, your students will return to use them again and again. The academic level of their writing will improve due to precise vocabulary usage and their vocabulary will grow due to repeated practice with the words. These documents have been bundled for your convenience.
