I do a series of guided writing workshops through the year. For example, in January I offered 7 different workshops on topics like thesis statements, topic sentences, quote integration, building better commentary, etc. Each student had to complete 3 of the 7 workshops based on areas of need in their essays. It took a lot of time to set up, but I really saw an improvement in their writing.

Let students see a lot of exam essays and discuss why each received what it did. Also, let them see and review each others essays. It is awkward at first, but the gain so much from the good and bad alike.
