An introduction for writers, and a refresher for students who need to take their writing to the next level. It includes tips and tricks and things to avoid when writing. I made this PowerPoint when I had 12th graders who were still writing like 5th graders. I also used it in my Middle School classroom when I walked students through writing their first paper ever. After using this in my classroom, I saw the quality of writing improve drastically, which was better for me and for my students!
