PAST CONFERENCE SESSIONS
SESSION: HOW TO WRITE AN ESSAY IN 7 EASY STEPS
This seminar teaches the Seven Steps of the A+DVANCE essay writing formula as described in the book “How to Write Excellent Essays in 7 Easy Steps.” Each letter in the acronym A+DVANCE is an easy way to remember the key points in this presentation from “Understanding the Assignment and your Audience” to “Final Editing Tips.” Perhaps the greatest surprise is “where the money is” in the essay and how quickly markers determine the grade for the paper. This seminar is especially relevant to high school students (and their parents) as they prepare for those critical college level essays and diploma exams. The A+DVANCE Formula is the extended introduction to the book, and lays the foundation for various types of persuasive, argumentative, narrative, and expository essays.
