Writing has always come pretty easy to me, but for many that is not the case. In fact, a couple of months ago, I was approached by a stranger in a public library (in another city) for help on writing an essay. I was pleased to help, and give a great foundation to this person. In about 10 minutes, I had them well on their way.
I was recently asked to demonstrate how to teach students to write an essay. In the presentation below, I highlighted my process using a hamburger and a house. Take a look, and feel free to share your thoughts.
