Essay Writing Format For Middle School

Need some Middle School essay writing help? You are not alone! Essay writing is an essential skill for middle school homeschoolers these days, but my middle schoolers have never risen in the morning and announced, “Hey, Mom, can we write ESSAYS today?”

However, they have all learned to write them and write them well. They have been thankful for the skills they mastered in middle school as they faced high school and college-level writing.

I have found that middle school homeschoolers need to be able to:

-capture an idea or opinion

-phrase it as a thesis that others can understand

-explain their thesis

-defend their thesis

-give clear and logical examples

-use good grammar and vocabulary skills

Why? Because they will be defending their ideas the rest of their lives! Hey, middle schoolers are presenting verbal essays all the time.

“3 Reasons I Don’t Want to Clean My Room”

“5 Reasons Math is Stupid”

“2 Reasons I Shouldn’t Have to Write This Essay”

If you give your middle school homeschooler some easy, self-directed, geared-for-success, no-busywork ways to write an essay, he/she will gain confidence for communication now. High school is coming, too, and essay-writing is foundational for high school education.

Get started now and it won’t be intimidating then!
