What Teachers Are Saying About This Essay Writing Unit:

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ Great package. As a new teacher sometimes it's difficult to find the time to do EVERYTHING for your students. This package put into words everything I was hoping to teach my grade 9's and 10's. It's informative, eye-catching and easy to explain/understand. Totally worth the $$.

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ This bundle is perfect for covering the basic parts of teaching essay writing! It has saved me so much time and enabled me to present similar content in a different way without putting in all the time myself to re-do my own presentations. The handouts (MLA Guidebook and Academic Writing Dictionary) are excellent--concise and compact reminders for students. Thank you so much!

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ Everything released by Presto Plans is high quality and easy to use and present. I appreciate the hard work they put in so I don't have to plan so much.
