Review of Example Essays

This is an assignment that students find very helpful. Gather some examples and put them in folders in Google Docs. Then create a link, so students can access the essays to choose ones to review.

  1. Read the following student essays and choose one "A" essay, one "B" essay, and one "C" essay. That is, you will read three essays.
  2. Then for each essay you read, write a brief paragraph discussing what you thought about the essay overall. Focus on how the writers wrote their essays. 
  3. Finally, for one of the essays (you choose which), write one list telling what the writer did well, and one list telling what you think could make it better.
