Product Description

The Elegant Essay Student Book

by Lesha Myers

In The Elegant Essay student book, teacher Lesha Myers offers a comprehensive course in essay writing. The Student Book is clearly laid out, and each section of the essay is taught both separately and together with many examples and exercises. There is space for students to practice writing in response to carefully crafted prompts. You will find this beautifully simple course helpful for both instruction and review. I recommend it highly.
