These resources can help your students write, edit, and proofread an essay.
One very good way to write a convincing essay is to follow the rule of three.
Once you’re confident your students are ready to move on to an essay it’s time for them to choose their topics.
“An interesting topic is the best way of helping the student maintain their interest throughout the writing process.
Show them how to explain points clearly by breaking things down into short and simple sentences.
Be sure they know to support every claim they make with evidence from their research.
Don’t be afraid to suggest topics if they’re struggling to choose one, and pick one you think will get their creative process jump-started.
If they choose one that is too broad, help them narrow their focus a bit,” recommends Fernando Horne, ESL teacher at Academized.
As your ESL students become more and more fluent, it’s time to start thinking about practicing more complex forms of writing, such as essays.
Essays are a great way for them to refine skills such as organizing information, doing research, and presenting an argument.
