Description

Teaching essay writing can be a daunting process, but these lessons guide students through a step-by-step process of writing a personal narrative, literary analysis, and expository essay. Each lesson can be used in class or assigned for distance learning as independent student work. The instructional videos with writing tutorials can also be presented as whole class instruction or assigned for students to complete at home.

These lessons demonstrate the entire process of writing a narrative essay, literary analysis, or expository essay using the elements tailored to the specific essay such as narrative: a short story to develop a plot. The videos, PowerPoints, graphic organizers, worksheets, and rubrics allow students to practice and develop their writing skills. The detailed lesson plans make implementing the lesson easy for teachers.

All aspects of writing are covered in these lessons: brainstorming ideas, developing a thesis, introducing main ideas, writing an essay hook, while incorporating the 6 Traits of Writing.

Your learners will enjoy the rigor and creativity of these engaging lessons built from best teaching practices. The idea is to keep your lesson planning journey easy, so you can focus on your expertise.
