Writing - Major Assignments

Here are a few of the major writing assignments that I have developed and used in my classes.

1. (Beginning Writing) List-Order Paragraph Assignment: Describe the characteristics or abilities needed for the job you would like to have in the future.
2. (Advanced Writing) Cause/Effect Essay: Describe the positive and negative effects of the strategies used by Walmart and other large retailers.
  • Assignment Description (pdf) - worksheet includes brainstorming activities, prompt, outline, a list of sources, and guidelines to using outside sources. In addition, I supplied them with handouts and worksheets to help them with incorporating paraphrases and direct quotes.
3. (Advanced Writing) Argument Essay: This assignment asks students to argue whether a developing country should invest in nuclear power, healthcare, or education.
