PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

The Skeleton Essay is a scaffolding/chunking structure I use in my classes to help students craft a process essay.

The "skeleton" idea is a metaphor to explain to students how essays are not simply random ideas written down stream-of-conscious style. The skeleton structure helps students learn how the parts of an essay work together to make coherent and cohesive structures to explain an argument.

This doc currently uses wording for To Kill a Mockingbird, but can easily be edited to work with any piece of literature. I use this with several different literature pieces throughout the year.

This guide walks students through the process of writing a thesis, crafting an intro paragraph and topic sentences, then gives a graphic organizer for collecting quotes from the text and organizing student ideas. Finally, the packet has a sheet that reminds students of MLA format and how to properly cite quotes according to MLA format.
