It can be treacherous and stressful to prepare your students for the state-mandated writing exams. While “teaching to the test” is not the answer, there are some simple tools you can give your students to help them to be more successful when writing their exam essays. One of the common frustrations teachers have is not being able to cover all of the expository writing styles in depth before the exam. That’s okay–I have a way of teaching writing that can be used for any style of writing. Let’s teach students how to write, not how to fill in a formula!
