Free: Teaching the essay – Visual

Product Description

This is a creative visual to help students understand the importance of constructing the essay. By comparing the essay to a house, students are able to understand the importance of the thesis statement as the foundation of the essay, the arguments as the supporting walls, and the conclusion as the roof.

This poster can be printed in an 8 x 11 format from any printer.
