1. Get the reader's attention
The opening few lines are crucial. You must address a concern or problem, engage the reader and open a line of conversation that causes the reader to think. The title must be interesting and provides the reader with a clear idea of what you are going to say. typical attention-getters include:
Have you ever / It's well-known that... but / People often say that...
2. Give your opinion
The article is meant to provoke thought but you must write to the reader specifically, imagine you are speaking to your mother. You would not be too formal (like with your teacher) but you would not be relaxed like with your friends. Make sure you keep the register consistent and make sure you address the reader with "you" not "the reader".
Personally / It seems to me that / In my view/ As far as I'm concerned
3. Make it easy to read
Your structure is one of the most important aspects to the examiner. Make sure there is a clearly defined ...

In literary Analysis writing, it is crucial to study and understand fully the text of a piece. One recommended conceptualized approach is an easy technique to employ. I call this strategy, fractional analysis. Operationally used in my exposition, Fractional analysis is studying the fictional work by components in order to comprehend the whole meanings of a specific work in written forms where reading intervention plays a vital role.
This ingenuity is unconsciously alluded with Bauer (2011)'s "Well Trained Mind" where she asserted that there should be a great understanding of the texts to be able to understand the techniques employed for effective literary understanding when students are able to recognize or classify through intensive reading. In addition to that, Pope (1995) who wrote his book, "Textual Intervention: Critical and Creative Strategies for Literary Studies" says that Interpretation of texts always entails interaction with texts. He discloses that the best way to ...
For the purpose of this article, integrating writing and differentiation into your classroom, I have designed techniques that meet most writing needs most of the time. Teaching writing and differentiation fluctuate with the student and the assignment, the moment and the timing, but the information that follows provides some insight for you.
Differentiation focuses on what students need to know and be able to do
Just as it focuses on what students already know and are able to do. Differentiation also recognizes that there may be gaps in past learning and so materials and techniques are combined to fill those gaps. Think of this as rebar and cement re-enforcement, not sand and a dab of paste. Differentiation accepts that some students already know what they need to know and be able to do at their current level of education and then creates scaffolding, challenges, and adventures to let that learning soar while also accepting that students learn at different paces and that sometimes "One ...
Research teaches us that in order for reading to be beneficial to a reader that it must be embraced as a meaning-making process. This suggests that the act of reading involves deriving understanding from the text. Since reading and writing are reciprocal processes, it can be assumed that just as meaning is gathered from reading that some benefit should be gathered from writing. This indeed is true. Writing can be considered an informational-constructive process because the writer's endeavor should always be to construct and deliver information in a matter that can be successfully transferred to their audience. In order for this to occur, writing instruction should be geared towards ensuring that students write with clarity, cohesiveness, and "sharability".
So, let's begin by exploring clarity. The term clarity, in this sense, suggests that the writer demonstrates the ability to deliver a transparent message to his or her audience. Many times when guiding our developing writers through ...
"True teachers are those who use themselves as bridges over which they invite their students to cross; then, having facilitated their crossing, joyfully collapse, encouraging them to create their own." ï¿½ Nikos Kazantzakis
As a recurring experience for several years in language education, effective writing instruction to English as a Second Language (ESL) learners could be probably attained through the constant incorporation of knowledge, language and organization (KLO) where information is obtained through guided reading reinforced by understanding vocabularies and grammar points for them to be able to assimilate and convey authentic ideas. To ensure the acquisition of this written proficiency, it is advised that teachers should have systematized methods of instructions instead of directly and confidently tasking the students to write without preliminary instructive- conditioning measures.
This proposed strategy attempts to organize and immerse students to garner enough knowledge on ...
