The Elegant Essay Teacher's Manual includes all the information needed to teach this course, from scheduling to structure to grading to daily lessons. Examples, teaching hints, models, and lesson-specific issues are addressed.
Each lesson begins with instruction in the students' book. After instruction, teachers model each lesson concept and lead students through assignments. Students are then allowed to practice ideas in a group or with the teacher, and finally complete a second set of "on your own" exercises independently.
