PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Writing doesn't come easily to many students; so to effectively teach writing we often need to GUIDE learners through the process. 


This comprehensive pack contains:
- 5 step-by-step lesson plans (each one guides the teacher in the most effective way to teach the concepts of the lesson, and provides helpful tips and hints for effective practice).
- A variety of attractive worksheets and hand-outs which accompany the lesson plans. 
- Two beautiful posters on 'Discourse Markers' to brighten up your classroom and remind learners of the many useful transition works/phrases they can use in their writing.


Lesson 1: The Discursive Essay - Many literary essays are discursive. Students will be asked to discuss characters, themes, plot etc. Therefore learning the structure of a discursive essay is imperative, and that’s what will be accomplished in this lesson. 


Lesson 2: Poetry Essay Part 1 - Ideally, you should teach the literary essay in the context of the literary work you are studying. As we can’t cover essay lessons on every novel/play out there, this lesson will look at studying a poem and writing a literary essay from there. 


Lesson 3: Poetry Essay Part 2 - Having studied the poem in detail in the previous lesson, this lesson students will be guided through the process of planning their poetry essays, and then writing them. 


Lesson 4: Essay on a Short Story Part 1 - Over two lessons, students will study the short story Thank you Ma’am by Langston Hughes and then plan, draft and write an essay based on the story. 


Lesson 5: Essay on a Short Story Part 2 - In this lesson we will build on the students’ understanding of the short story Thank You Ma’am, by planning and writing an essay on the text. Students will also learn how to incorporate quotations in their essays.
