pensandmachine:Essay writing tip from my friend Theresa  I asked my friend Theresa (who is majoring in philosophy) for tips on writing a philosophy essay and wrote down what she gave me.   Although these are meant to be for philosophy essays I think they could be used for other essays in general as well. These are really basic tips, but are nevertheless helpful and essential!  This is great, Theresa.

A VISUAL GUIDE TO ORGANIZING YOUR PAPERS - Look at the shape of this organizer. While your essay will be about a specific topic, try to start and end with general statements. The largest part of your essay is the body paragraphs because these paragraphs explain and support your position. Do not overlook your title! Your title is the first thing reader's will read and you do not want it to be the last thing! Your title should be interesting AND indicate what your essay is about.

This ones for older students and can push students to use several different kinds of prompts in their writing. I love that it is visually stimulating and therefore students are more likely to refer to it when writing in class.

This can be used anytime my students are asked to analyze/evaluate a text, story, video, etc.
