Wir alle kennen es: Man hält an einer Entscheidung fest, obwohl deutlich absehbar ist, dass sie falsch ist. Schlimmer noch, man ignoriert alle Warnungen, verpasst die Gelegenheit, die Katastrophe abzuwenden und steuert sogar noch direkt in sie hinein. Ein unerklärliches Verhalten? Mitnichten, sagen Ori und Rom Brafman.

Teaching writing as part of a building activity provides students with an easy to remember image that helps them understand and apply good writing construction. This building process helps them see how each writing block sets the foundation for the next block; as a result, their confidence in writing skills grows. The first foundational block is writing correct sentences, the second, writing effective paragraphs, and finally writing effective essays. Just as actual foundations require raw materials, so does each writing building block require specific elements. For example, in grammar, to build a correct sentence, you need nouns, verbs, prepositions, conjunctions, and other grammatical elements. As the third book of the Building Better series, _Building Better Essays_ builds on students' knowledge of effective paragraph construction, covered in Building Better Paragraphs, to get them to the next step of putting paragraphs together successfully for coherent essays. Many writing books present content in too complex a manner without enough opportunities for practice or present so many topics that simply overwhelm the student. The Building Better series evolved to be flexible enough that they can also be used as a quick reference guide by all college students or writing instructors. Any student who needs help writing concise and clear essays can benefit from the pedagogy of Building Better Essays. Instructors looking for a rich focus on essay construction, simple and brief explanations that are easy to remember, and variety of practice exercises will find it in Building Better Essays.

The skills required to write an essay are the same skills required to write a speech, to prepare a persuasive argument, to prove a point, or to explain an idea. If we can help our students acquire these skills as we teach “the essay,” we will have assisted them in accomplishing truly valuable life skills. Essay Writing contains easy-to-incorporate lessons along with tips for teaching specific concepts that range from pre-writing exercises to revising and editing to celebrating the final product. This down-to-earth look at the foundations of good essay writing is full of useful ideas and strategies that help students: build skills in writing on a wide range of topics; distinguish between formal and informal writing; use effective pre-writing techniques such as brainstorming, making an outline,gathering information, and evaluating the relevance of information; gain confidence as they begin to recognize what works and what doesn't. The book incorporates a wide range of innovative approaches to teaching essay writing — from how to “picture” and “act out” an essay to a winning format for a topic sentence and using scattergrams to turn brainstorming into constructive outlines. Throughout the book, assessment tools and marking keys support simple marking techniques that consider not just the final essay, but effort and time on task.
