An excellent guide for writing strong essays

Here is an excellent guide for writing strong essays in English courses, written by Professors Jeannine DeLombard and Dan White in the UofT English Department.

It is short and non-technical and offers very helpful step-by-step procedures for developing thesis statements and writing strong, effective prose.

We’ll be discussing some of these ideas in Friday’s tutorial, but nothing beats the full treatment this resource offers.

A quicker read, but also useful, is “Getting an A on an English Paper,” by Jack Lynch at Rutgers University. Very helpful especially for delineating what makes a good thesis statement.
