Description

Essay writing is a skill that students can learn in the middle grades and will carry with them through college. While many of us teachers did not learn this skill until high school, with the CCSS, writing extensive/elaborate pieces is now a requirement of our students at all levels, specifically in the middle grades..

For this reason, I created this ESSAY WRITING 101 pack of organizers. I wanted to help my students be able to construct a thorough essay that required them to write 5-paragraphs effectively and successfully, taking the students through the brainstorm, drafting, editing, and publishing stages.

It takes my students about 7 class periods to complete the entire process, depending on how quickly they are able to word process. It may take your students more or less time.

Included in this organizer pack is:
• Day-by-Day Agenda for teaching the essay writing process
• Brainstorm organizer
• Introductory paragraph and conclusion organizer
• Three body paragraph organizer
• Writing Topics
• Editing checklist
• Pictures of my students taking on the essay writing process: drafting, editing, and publishing
• the 3 CCSS standards listed for grades 4-7 Writing

Your students can be effective essay writers in just 7 class periods!
