Product Description
I work exclusively with at-risk students, this means they are usually working well below grade level. I created this “outline” to help students who are unfamiliar or uncomfortable with the writing process, however, works well as a starter or first draft for any writer. The “outline” walks the student through the essay paragraph by paragraph and sentence by sentence. The outline explain what to write with a prompt and provides an example sentence


1. General Topic Sentence: Has to grab the reader's attention. Tell what you are writing about.
Example: Faced with extinction from an alien threat mankind must use every resource they have, including children. After reading the book Ender’s Game I watched the movie.

If complete properly, the student has a first draft that they can type up and start peer editing or a second draft. There are a grading rubric and formatting requirements that not only make the paper more formal but require many different settings be changed in order to familiarize the student with a word processor program.


This “outline” is for a 5 paragraph compare and contrast essay. The assignment asked students to look for similarities and differences between a book and its movie counterpart. I currently use this assignment to finish our "I am Legend" unit, I have been using it for the past five years with a good degree of success.

NOTE: I have decided to include the Word Documents that the PDFs are created from so that if you would like to customize the unit for your classroom you can. However, I have used formatting and custom fonts that are not standard with many versions of Microsoft office. This may mean that opening them with a different version of office or without the same fonts installed will throw the formatting off. If so it may take some work to adapt them in your class. I am including them as an extra and would ask that I am not rated on the usability of the Word Docs. Since they are not the finished product, but an extra.
