So many text books teach essay writing like carpentry then they show you exactly how to build the house. Gretchen Bernabei's ground-breaking professional book shows teachers and students that essay writing is gardening, and like gardening, the structure of the plant grows and evolves from the seed or kernel of truth. This practical and awe inspiring professional book shows teachers how to lay to rest the 5 paragraph theme and hamburger paragraph and create a class of real writers with real voices that create real organization out of what they have to say. Teachers 3-12 can use the fun and practical lessons in this book to create the essays that get the highest scores on the writing test while delighting the audience. A "must -have"book for all teachers of writing.
