I love the energy of Ms. Sackman in this awesome video. It is plain to see that the students are engaged and actively involved in the learning process. The writing manipulatives serve the purpose of being a blueprint model that all students can use as a visual model. I will definitely try and use this same techniques with my students.

Creating the right essay structure is the best start for writing an interesting and high-quality essay. Many students make mistakes at this stage of writing an essay. This paperwork should have at least three main parts: the introduction, the main part of the story and conclusion. Often, students miss an introduction or conclusion, and because of this, the structure of the essay breaks down and reading this becomes uninteresting. In addition to essays, students also have to write many other paper works, such as dissertations, assignments, etc. There are many educational services where you can be helped with writing such works. For example, on the service Paperial you can buy a dissertation online. A huge number of students use this service to have more free time. This is the main problem of students. The best masters of this business will help you with writing any paper work on time. Wherever you are at any time you can ask for help from this service.

First, let me just say...There is a reason she was Florida's Teacher of the Year! Amazing!!!

Secondly, she is connected to the students and engaged.  She gets the students engaged and allows them to respond in whatever way they feel comfortable and then she coaches them to English.  The manipulative is a tool to make the connection to the writing.  It allows the students to see the writing process and build a bridge to their own writing process.

Such a fun and clever way to teach an essay even for non-ELL students. It's also a great way to incorporate when ELL students are in the same room with native speakers. They don't feel singled out.
