Designed for use in grades 6-12, Essay Architect will help you teach everything your students need to know about writing a great essay, from the essential structure and vocabulary of the essay, to in depth practice on the elements of the essay, to reviewing and peer-editing model and non-model essays, to learning the specifics of how to write and organize each type of essay, to polishing the essay in its final stages. Students have the opportunity to learn and practice every step of the process before actually writing an essay, and learn how to evaluate and assess other essays to recognize high-quality, well-written essays, as well as poorly-written, weak writing. Best of all, we have included in-depth study of each type of essay, including essay-specific organizers, prompts, notes, peer-editing checklists, and rubrics for Persuasive/Argumentative essays, Cause and Effect essays, Compare and Contrast Essays, Descriptive Essays, Informative/Explanatory Essays, Reflective/Personal Narrative Essays, Response to Literature Essays, and Research Papers.
