Publisher: Alison Plus
Note: This is a boxed set containing each of the following five A+ Guides: Firve-Paragraph Essays, Short Answer Essays, Compare and Contrast Essays, Persuasive Essays, and Narrative Essays. The first year of college can be challenging for many reasons. The classes are harder, the schedule is more demanding, and you will be expected to manage everything on your own, perhaps for the first time in your life. And the papers! You have to write so many papers! But there is help available for the papers, at least. The Freshman Five Boxed Set contains the five Alison Plus Guides to Writing for the five types of papers most college freshmen will have to write: five-paragraph essays, short answer essays, compare and contrast essays, persuasive essays, and narrative essays. Each assignment type has different challenges and goals, but now one collection makes all five writing guides available in one boxed set. About the A+ Method You are looking for help with a writing assignment. Good news! Help is here! The A+ Method was developed through years spent working with student writers on a variety of writing assignments. Regardless of the specific assignment type (five-paragraph essay, persuasive essay, narrative essay, literature review, etc.), it soon became clear that students shared one strong concern. They wanted to know what to put where. They had ideas about their topics, and they knew what they wanted to say, but they didn’t know how to present those ideas in an organized manner so that the paper could “flow” well. The A+ Method assists the students with overcoming that concern. Each type of assignment follows a unique writing pattern, and each A+ Method booklet presents that pattern in easy-to-follow steps. The pattern shows the writer what to put where. Along the way, each booklet also addresses other writing concerns typical to a specific assignment type. By focusing on assignment type rather than on writing essays in general, each specific booklet targets the pedagogical goals in a way that leads to a greater likelihood of student success. Choose the booklet that corresponds to your assignment type, and then follow the steps in the booklet. Working the steps carefully the first time will not only lead to a finished paper, but to a better understanding of how to write a specific type of paper. Then, with subsequent similar assignments, use the booklet as a refresher to guarantee that you will hit the assignment targets each time.
