This unit of study creates a lock-step instructional process to help elementary students begin mastering the science of essay writing. By using graphic organizers, a visual guideline provides students with a framework to organize thoughts before writing begins. From composing quality paragraphs with supporting details to preparing quality essays, this unit guides students through the steps of writing. Although seemingly over-structured, creativity comes into writing after these initial practices occur. The instruction page provides teachers direction into the use of the organizers.
