Particularly helpful for students who are beginning to complete essay assignments, this workbook uses stories from Australian history, combined with the methods taught in Teaching Writing, in order to teach students how to take content from reference works and write a logical, readable essay. This workbook covers note taking, writing from notes, summarizing narrative stories, summarizing references, writing from pictures, research reports, creative writing, essay composition, and critiques.
Incremental lessons build upon each other, so that by the end students will be able to stitch together the steps they've previously learned in order to write their reports. Lessons feature an objective, box of source text, and step-by-step assignment, as well as note outline models and additional grammatical or writing information students will need to use integrated as necessary. Checksheets are also leveled for students at different stages in the writing profess, with beginner, intermediate, and advanced level student checksheets provided.
