Dont Let High School Writing Scare You

Don’t Let High School Writing Scare You - 
The essay format lasts for about 8 years (high school and college). It’s designed to make the lives of teachers and professors easier—to make grading simple. If you and I had dinner together, I could teach you to write an essay on the back of a napkin! What’s missing in most writing programs for high school is the thinking component. Let’s look at how to develop the rhetorical imagination of your teens so that they have something of worth to put in all those essays, and so that they can take that quality thinking into their lives beyond college.
