In-Class Essay Writing Strategies

In-class essay writing can be a weak spot for good reason: we don't know what to expect, we don't have as much time to prepare, and we're put on the spot.

Here's a preview of some of the strategies I coach my students on:

  • Practice before the exam

  • Take a deep breath

  • Jot down some notes on the test to help you remember your ideas

  • Mark up the prompt by circling key words

  • Ask clarifying questions if needed

  • Plan your essay and write your thesis

  • Watch the time

  • Double space so you have room to add words or ideas

  • Proofread
