This is a three week lesson plan which is designed for students who have been introduced to essay writing but still do not feel comfortable writing essays. The lessons cover integrating and citing quotations, creating outlines, and writing body paragraphs. Within the scaffolded lessons, students work with partners intensively to improve their writing. The lesson plan is built around two short stories, both included. When the students complete the unit they will have written four outlines, discussed and analyzed literature, written three stand-alone paragraphs, two in-class essays and one typed essay. This download is 56 pages and has everything you need to help your students understand the fundamentals of essay writing. You can also purchase my powerpoint as an aide to this unit.
