Developing Essay Writing Skills
MS/HS students develop conclusions to enhance their essays.
The Essay Writing class today focused on enhancing their conclusions for their position paper. Each student has one stance on the position paper based on the topic of whether video games should be played or not. To improve their conclusions they focused on using good word choice, restating claims, demonstrating how the argument shifted and integrating messages and suggestions for the readers. The conclusion is important for position paper as it enables the writer to restate the argument and strengthen their essay.
For many of the students, the Essay Writing class is a way for them to improve academic writing. Although the students have written argumentative papers in past years, they never had the chance to focus specifically on how to write and make the essays better. The course provides the students with a platform to develop their writing for academic writing in the future. It also enables the students who are entering high school to develop interest and prepare for academic clubs such as debate as well as their classes.
