Description

– Building Skills and Confidence with Diverse Essay Types

Writing formal essays requires a wide range of skills as students develop and organise complex ideas, think critically, identify and synthesise relevant information and effectively communicate their thoughts and ideas. Critical Essay Writing responds to these diverse needs with a breadth of resources expertly designed to build strong writing skills.

As a crucial starting point, it breaks down the essay writing task into manageable skills and offers ample opportunities to practise and apply each one, including in online contexts. It then sets out a multitude of lessons in which students combine these skills in different ways to produce both literary essays and essays that are also important to success in other curriculum areas, such as persuasive, argument and cause and effect essays.

Not stopping at lesson plans, this truly “resource-full” book includes material for mini-workshops on key aspects of essay writing, as well as numerous exemplars and activity and assessment templates.

Designed for versatility, these resources can be combined to suit the needs of particular classes or individual students so that they develop the writing skills that will serve them well at a secondary level and throughout their lives.

Features of this title:

  • Introduces both component skills and the “big picture” of constructing an essay
  • Contains essay types relevant to other curriculum areas
  • It is a rich source of lesson plans, mini-workshops, exemplars, templates and links to further resources
  • It supports teaching and learning for the whole class, learners with language backgrounds other than English and students with learning difficulties.
