Product Description
Just as the pieces of a place setting go in particular spots on the table, the elements of an essay's document need to be formatted just so!

Use this easy simile to teach your students why essays need to adhere to a certain "look", plus easy ways to remember what to do where. This handout can be used as a full 45-minute lesson, an activity for a mini-lesson, or a writer’s workshop tool just to differentiate for the students who need it.

This handout (both PDF and editable PPT files) is applicable to argumentative OR informative essays and was designed as an introduction for students who have not been taught this content before, but it also serves as a great review lesson for older students, or for any learner who just needs to hear something multiple times.

{Check out the PREVIEW for close-up images of the different steps of the lesson!}
