Step 8. REREAD your essay. Correct all the errors you find. Do I need to suggest a few? Check spelling (dictionary), check capitalization and punctuation (Learning Grammar Through Writing, is our favourite child-friendly help), take out unnecessary words (. "In my opinion, I think that.." is saying the same thing twice, and starting every sentence with "Now" or "Then" ) , and change any sentences or words that do not seem right. Some parental help at this point is very helpful in building better essays.

Welcome! This site contains grammar and usage worksheets that I created to use in my own college classes. I teach English composition, and although my courses presuppose fluency in English and a command of standard American grammar, syntax, and punctuation, I find that students benefit from a review, or in some cases, an introduction, to these concepts.
The skills needed to narrate a story well are not entirely the same as the skills needed to write a good essay. Some wonderful short fiction writers are not particularly good essayists and vice versa.

Going through the full writing process—pre-writing, drafting, revising, rewriting and publishing—can be a lot of work, but it’s always worth the effort. Each stage of the writing process builds on the last, and each subsequent stage would be much harder if the previous one hadn’t been completed. When students read the essay in its final, polished form, it becomes clear that following the complete writing process produces the best essay.. Read More
Up at a promontory above the river we found Olu Igbo 656 the lord of the forest. Placing his stick in his back pocket, the little man fell silent and bowed. It was indeed an awesome sight 656 a giant stone effigy standing among great trees, with huge eyes and long arms spread out like wings.

Since introducing the outline and roughcopy approach with our 67 year old son he has commented that it has become EASIER to write an essay. Yeah! Planning ahead is sure to improve the final product too! (And it has.)
Graphic organizers can help students put their writing ideas in order. Graphic organizers are sets of charts, diagrams, and maps that offer ways to brainstorm for details about a topic and then arrange those details in logical order. Graphic organizers help students see how ideas relate to each other, helping suggest which information is important, or which details to concentrate on. Graphic organizers are great tools for arranging information in preparation for writing an essay.. Read More
College or Advanced Placement (AP) English teachers can use the grammar worksheets as supplements to their primary handbook or grammar text college department chairs or directors of compostion programs can use them as emergency substitute plans or integrate them in their composition programs.
