Writing an essay - but how?

Writing an essay - but how?

A teaching resource provided by Mike Stallard.

Resource Description

Teaching writing an essay is hard, so, let's face it, we are often not given the opportunity to do it. How about if we just bobbed onto the internet and got a really simple template for all essay writing based on the work of the finest Classical authors but with A level very much in mind?

Somewhere where you just clicked on the sentence that appealed. Somewhere where you didn't have to wade through lots of irrelevant material to get there. Somewhere where you got ideas for a beginning, a middle (paragraphs) and end. Somewhere written in simple, clear English.
All you, dear fellow teacher, had to do was to mark it…

Here it is.https://gourmetenglish.blogspot.com

I did it as a website because I want everyone to use it. Also because of one of my A level students - are you reading this Andrana? - showed me that I had to give it a go.

See what you think.
