Essay writing is a skill that students can learn in the middle grades and will carry with them through college. While many of us teachers did not learn this skill until high school, with the CCSS, writing extensive/elaborate pieces is now a requirement of our students at all levels, specifically in the middle grades..
For this reason, I created this ESSAY WRITING 101 pack of organizers. I wanted to help my students be able to construct a thorough essay that required them to write 5-paragraphs effectively and successfully, taking the students through the brainstorm, drafting, editing, and publishing stages.
