Product Description
From start/introduction to finish/conclusion, this entire unit takes both teacher and student through the entire writing process in composing an expository essay. As tedious as the task of essay writing can be for students, this unit breaks down every vital step from identifying a strong thesis, how to craft strong arguments through the body paragraphs, and then securing a thoughtful conclusion to wrap it up. The unit includes step-by-step strategies for students (and teachers!), samples, rubric, peer editing tables, checklist of progress, outlines and how to do simple referencing/quoting.

Here are screencasts to help students review how to write each section of the expository essay:
