• Unit 3: Supporting Writing

    In this unit, we'll consider the best way to plan and support our essays. As you develop your answer to an essay prompt, you want to be sure you back it up with strong support that is organized in a way that the reader can follow easily.

    We'll discuss thesis statements, supporting points, organizing paragraphs using the MEAL Plan, and determining the relevance of outside evidence with the CRAAP test. Our test-taking strategy in this unit assists with organizing all those ideas to ensure the final essay is clear and focused for the reader.

    Completing this unit should take you approximately 2 hours.
