Essay Writing

This daily, scaffolded approach to essay writing is perfect to help get your students writing good, solid, detailed 5 paragraph essays. Students will write one essay a school month (20 days), focusing on the organization and format of the essay itself.

There are 20 separate writing prompts in this 300+ page file. Prompts cover the genres of:

Personal Narrative
Imaginative Narrative
Informational Writing
Opinion Writing

All of the prompts are student-centered so that they will not get bogged down on the topic but rather focus on writing the essay itself. The beginning of the month is heavily scaffolded with graphic organizers, resulting in a nice, solid rough draft. The second half of the month switches focus to revising and editing, producing a good, solid 5 paragraph essay.

There are samples of completed paragraphs, rubrics for each genre (in two sizes for you to choose), revising, editing, and peer editing checklists, and even final draft paper for you to use. There are also blank templates for you to create your own writing prompts to better suit the needs of your students.

I have designed this to accompany my Paragraph of the Week, however if your students have not done POW, that is OK! They will be able to follow this format with ease.

You can also try Fictional Narrative Paragraph of the Week which, is a fantastic product for your classroom!

This is for use by one teacher in one classroom. If you would like to share with your colleagues, PLEASE purchase a multiple license. This really was a lot of work for me and I would appreciate it.
