This is an outline I created for the 5 plus paragraph essay. This product is great for beginning writers who lack organization. Anyone who is new to writing, has special needs, or is working on a GED course would benefit from this outline. I have also included notes on what each section means from the opening statement to the clincher. I have used this outline with my high school students and GED students. My students who have followed this outline have improved their organization to a clearly recognizable pattern instead of a confusing mess.
