ADULT LEARNING CENTRE
Essay Evaluation Workshop
March 14, 2002
This class will be devoted to examining, discussing, and revising
various examples of student essay writing. Students will be called on to
volunteer their work for discussion.
During our workshop we will look at the
Student topic sentences. Are the sentences effective, clear? Do
they contain controlling ideas?
Student concluding sentences. Do the sentences restate the
controlling ideas effectively?
Student example sentences. Do the sentences contain lively, vivid
examples (show, rather than tell)?
Student thesis sentences. This sentence should be one of the best
in the essay. Is the thesis clear, effective, and well written?
Student introductory paragraph sentences. Have the sentences
"grabbed" the readers' attention? Do the sentences lead
naturally to the thesis?
Other areas, including effective grammar and structure will be
examined as well. All notes will be kept as a record, along with
student and teacher comments.
