Once upon a time everything was made by hand. Each item had to be crafted individually; it took forever because there was no standardization. When Man grasped the concept of using patterns templates and molds to mass-produce identical parts for later assembly manufacturing efficiency took a great leap forward. Whether making furniture or automobiles once people had assembled the first model building additional copies was a piece of cake. They could be certain that the parts would fit together.
Getting Started A challenge many kids (and adults) face writing essays is getting started. The person sits there waiting for inspiration to hit them like a lightening bolt and it never happens. What can you as a parent do to help? Encourage them with the thought that great essays are never written the first time over. Get them to view essay writing as a three-part process. The first draft is only to get out the ideas and words in rough form. In the second and third effort they will add to their essay where there are blanks clarify ideas and give it a final polish. Realising that an essay isnt supposed to be perfect the first time you write it really helps some people.
As any writer will know they are not the best person to look for any errors or omissions in their work. Read it through certainly pick up some obvious mistakes of course. However being too close to your writing is one of the reasons that book editors exist and of course the same applies to essay writing.
