What makes a good teacher? By now you have certainly had many teachers in your life, in grade school, middle school, and in college. You might also have had some wonderful teachers outside of the classroom. For this assignment, I want you to think about what made them so outstanding. Begin by listing some of the best teachers you have known, both in and out of school. Once you have done some prewriting, start listing the qualities that made these teachers so good. In your essay, I want you to focus on explaining to your reading audience the characteristics that these people possessed that helped make them such great educators (I do not want you to write an essay about your favorite teacher). You can list these attributes in your thesis statement, and you can begin each body paragraph with one of these qualities. Develop your body paragraphs with specific examples from your own experiences. Remember to be as specific as possible. In other words, use “real” examples. Since this is your final essay assignment, it will be your last opportunity to show me that you have overcome the major problems that we have identified in your writing. Therefore, it is very important that you spend enough time on this work. By now I am expecting you to work carefully through each step of the writing process, and that you show me this work stapled to the back of your essay. Likewise, make sure to consult your Writing Journal as well as your other graded essays, before you revise, edit, and proofread your essay.As always, make sure to reach out to me if you have any questions or are unsure about anything.
