Book Description

Pulitzer Prize winner David McCullough said, “Writing is thinking. To write well is to think clearly. That's why it's so hard." Too many students enter college without a basic understanding of writing, which can affect every aspect of their education.

Author and educator Laura Torres provides a one-stop guide to preparing secondary and homeschool students for college-level writing. This handbook covers the five most common types of essays: 

  • Narrative
  • Compare/Contrast
  • Summary/Response
  • Research
  • Argumentative

The 5 Essays You Must Master to Be College Ready includes lessons, tips, and organizational guides for writing clear and compelling essays. Torres walks students through the complete writing process, from outlining to revising and ultimately evaluating their work (with provided grading rubrics). With this easy-to-follow instruction, students can master these essay types, be college ready, and redefine what it means to think and communicate well.
