I made an essay writing guide about the foundations of essay writing for grade 9-10 students. However, I found that a lot of older students (up to and including Masters at University) were using it. I account this to the fact that internationally, different educational systems teach different things and that some people live in countries or states that expected students to have that foundation knowledge without ever actually teaching it — something that some students have struggled with for years can be very simple when taught in a different way, the important thing is to find out why it didn’t work for them and then change your teaching.
The essay guide can be viewed HERE and downloaded HERE. There is also a clean (no swearing) version HERE and downloaded HERE for younger students, those who object to swearing, or those who want to use it in a school with a faith based curriculum.
EDIT: Y’all should know I made the guide as a joke, in 10 minutes, while in a lecture, when I was supposed to be focused on looking at my own essay. I didn’t spell check or really read over it at all before posting, and fully own all mistakes I made (I KNOW THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN “IT’S” AND “ITS” OKAY, YOU TRY FOCUSING ON NEUROPSYCHOLOGY AND CREATING SATIRICAL POWER POINTS FOR A SOCIAL MEDIA PLATFORM CO-CURRENTLY, I DARE YOU).
I didn’t expect it to become a resource or anything, and it is LITERALLY the barest of bones, the very basic foundation of essays. When you’re in your later years of university, this will not fly — you have to BUILD your essay writing skills. The planning method will still work in later years, but you’ll learn about how essay writing works for you, and about what individual teachers and professors expect of you. Don’t take this to your university and think it’s the bees knees. This should be something you look at as your foundation, it’s just a slab of concrete — you still need to build a house on it before you’ll have a home.
BITCHES IT’S LIKE HOGWARTS, WE HAVE A LAKE AND EVERYTHING
Just a friendly reminder to students living in the Adelaide area (or who have access to Skype/email for distance tutoring): I am an experienced tutor and counsellor who specializes in all humanities and business/accounting based subjects (and biology) up until the first year of university and that my hourly rate is flexible depending on the student.
ALSO IF ANYONE WHO HAS USED MY ESSAY GUIDE WANTS TO WRITE A LIL RECOMMENDATION THING FOR ME TO SHOW PARENTS AND STUDENTS THEN PLEASE DO.
Sunday roast chicken!! #wecookedawholefuckingbird @ribzrevenge @littleelk24
you know what i always thought was kinda neat
when gay couples raise children and you have to pick something other than dad or mom for the kid to call you
because obviously dad and dad or mom and mom is rly confusing for all parties
can i make my future kids call me something really cool and my wife can be “mom”
can i be like megatron
"mommy’s busy go ask megatron"This is such a sweet post Jesus Christ.

Ok. I’m tired of the typical vampire, werewolf and fairy.I’m also tired of the occidental-centrism in mythology. Hence, this list.
I tried to included as many cultural variants as I could find and think of. (Unfortunately, I was restricted by language. Some Russian creatures looked very interesting but I don’t speak Russian…) Please, add creatures from your culture when reblogguing (if not already present). It took me a while to gather all those sites but I know it could be more expansive. I intend on periodically editing this list.
Of note: I did not include specific legendary creatures (Merlin, Pegasus, ect), gods/goddesses/deities and heroes.
