Category Description for Elegant Essay:

Suppose your junior or senior high student has been through Level B or C of the Student Writing Intensive (SWI) seminar and has a good understanding of how to write a paragraph using topic and clincher sentences. He may even have a little bit of experience with essay writing but you feel he needs more instruction and practice with essays. This course is for you! Focusing specifically on the structure and content of essay writing, it's an extension and refinement of IEW's Unit VIII (the formal essay). Utilizing a four-step teaching strategy which includes preliminary instruction, modeling, practice with help, and "on your own" work, this ten-week course by Lesha Myers takes the student step-by-step through the essay-writing process. Teaching units include thesis statements, essay organization, transitions, introductions, and conclusions and end with descriptive and persuasive essay practice. Revised for 2011, the Teacher's Manual is now separate from the Student Book and includes additional teacher material specifically useful for co-op classes - class schedules and more information on teaching methods. Student Books contain the student pages from the previous edition with additional pages for taking class notes. The two books are designed to be interactive, and both are required to complete the course successfully.

It doesn't get any easier than this when it comes to teaching the parts of an essay. With a solid foundation in the structure of essay writing, my students are able to focus on the most important part, what they actually have to say. Thanks!

Brigitte Y on Jun 7, 2020
Is this curriculum designed for a full year or just a semester?
A shopper on Jul 23, 2019
BEST ANSWER: My son completed it in a semester, but my daughter used it in a coop setting for an entire school year. When it was used for a year, the students had extra writing assignments. I think it can be used in either time frame, depending on what your schedule needs or allows.
