Product Description:

Most of the book is written to the student. There are five main instructional units. The first section describes what an essay is and how to recognize an essay and its different parts. The second section covers prewriting techniques like brainstorming, research, selection of arguments, and outlining. The third section shows the steps to write a first draft. Aspects such as the thesis paragraph, transitions, paragraphs in the body, the concluding paragraph, using quotes in an essay, and footnotes and bibliography are described. The fourth section is the largest and covers editing and revising. They instruct students on how to develop and improve style and make sure the mechanics are correct. Diction, tone, sentence variety, and syntax are just a few of the subjects covered. The final section shows the student how to write the final draft. A sample essay is included, as are charts to show diagramming of certain writing techniques. There are a few reproducible worksheets and activities included in the book but, overall, it is mostly informational text, describing the writing process for the essay.
