UIL Ready Writing Concepts

While most other contests include predetermined topics, extensive materials, reading lists, or study guides, Ready Writing requires contestants to utilize a toolbox contained entirely in their minds. In addition, the contents of this toolbox are rather unique compared to those one would pack for a standard essay-writing scenario. 

Ready Writing Concepts explores expository writing with students, instructing them in the art and skill of constructing strong essays. The following areas are covered:

  • thesis support
  • tone
  • voice
  • style
  • word choice
  • structure
  • pitfalls to avoid

INCLUDES:

Examples of strong and weak essays and practice exercises.

    More geared toward middle school

    Published by Angela on 18th Nov 2015

    I coach 3rd, 4th, and 5th Ready Writing, and I felt like this book was a little deep for most of my kids. I think this would be a fantastic resource for 7th-8th, and might work for 6th. My 5th graders have really struggled with the concepts, and I didn't even try it with my 3rd-4th. The entire first 2/3 of the book is lengthy discourse about fairly abstract concepts, and for elementary it really should be more concrete. I don't think this material was really intended for my kids. I was hoping for more examples on their level and sample writing prompts, along with some tips and tricks.
