The perception that no part of the essay writing process can be "systematized" (i.e. repeated over and over again) is flawed. It overlooks the fact that the structure of virtually every type of essay follows the same format. American high school English classes focus almost exclusively on the content of an essay. Since each essay assignment deals with new subject matter students assume that all essays are different. They dont realize that "topic" is an irrelevant factor. There is very little discussion about the format of a properly structured essay.
Getting students over this barrier was one of the reasons I put pen to paper four years ago and produced a book called Write That Essay! At that stage I was a senior academic at Auckland University and a university examiner. For nearly 20 years in both course work and examinations I had counselled everyone from 17-year-old newbies to 40-year-old career changers with their essay writing. Often the difference between a student who might achieve a B-Grade and the A-Grade student was just some well-placed advice and direction.
