I love my job.
Besides writing stories and books, I teach essay and creative writing to a handful of students. In one of my groups, a high school essay class, we worked on several different types of essays. In the following videos, you will see a demonstrative essay come to life followed by an interview for a biography.
For the demonstrative essay, I told the boys I would follow their essay to a T to “demonstrate” the importance of choosing the perfect word for the situation. The essay was on: How to Make a Peanut-Butter and Jelly Sandwich. I had the assistance of the hilarious and insanely talented Beth Meggs (who created my awesome Clifton Chase jewelry) as shown here.
The second video is an interview conducted by Quenton N. who plays Clifton Chase in the trailer video. While the students produced an awesome and informative essay about my life as a mother, wife, and author, we definitely had a BLAST gathering notes during the interview process. I’ll have some more of these to show soon.
So, enjoy the clips, and remember there’s no reason why learning to write essays should EVER be boring!!
