What English Teachers Want Cover

This is an excellent book for students who often find themselves wondering what it is that teachers expect. How do you write a sparkling essay—the kind that teachers expect and some students produce easily but that others struggle over? This is the definitive guide to what English teachers really want to see in student writing. Produced by a high school teacher with 26 years of experience, this handbook provides focused, step-by-step explanations to improve both the content and mechanics of writing. It explains how to organize an essay, formulate a thesis, and produce logical arguments and penetrating analyses. It gives specific advice on how to take notes and how to make writing sound more sophisticated. The book also includes a sample student essay in three drafts, with thorough teacher evaluations that point out common errors. The integrated indexed text teaches how to correct those errors.

Students like this book because it is easy to use, loaded with examples, and thoroughly cross-referenced to focus help exactly where it is needed. Teachers like it because it breaks down writing into manageable elements so that they do not just expect good writing; they actually get it.
