Using a Model Essay as a Teaching Tool in Undergraduate Geography Courses.
Sublett, Michael D.
Teaching undergraduate students to write required essays for academic courses is the focus of this paper. In a preparatory lecture the instructor explains essay standards and provides instructions for writing essays. An model essay is presented to each class member to be used as a guide for class compositions. The appendix includes an essay of approximately 1,500 words that presents an opening paragraph followed by 16 example paragraphs explaining the heading of each in detail. Examples are: title, subheadings, paragraphs, initial paragraphs, middle paragraphs, final paragraphs, bibliographic information, and a bibliography. (NL)
