introduce writing an essay fun activity
A brief lesson in clarity! For a quick, fun starter, remind students how important it is to be clear in their explanations. Get them to write a brief, clear explanation for something simple such as how to tie a shoelace or a tie. Then see if their partner can follow their explanation.
Mat mates. Encourage students to make their own ‘criteria mats’, for use when writing. The laminated mats provide a checklist to achieve a C (or any other level/grade). They could remind students to use PEE paragraphs, to provide evidence for each point they make, and to return regularly to the question.
This is where you conclude your essay by reiterating Paragraph 1 and providing a brief synopsis of Paragraphs 2 – 4. Here you need to tie all the separate points together in a logical manner. Conclude with an impressive statement that will stay with the reader and make sure you don’t overlook any loose ends
