Writing skills are an important part of communication. Good writing skills allow you to communicate your message with clarity and ease to a far larger audience than through face-to-face or telephone conversations.
Students will be called upon to write a report, essay, or even a prompt for one of the state tests. A well-written essay will give you accolades and bonus points throughout their future career. The only way to teach writing is to ensure kids have lots of practice. Practice needs templates to organize thoughts well.

I always began teaching the 5 paragraph essay with the original template. As we came closer to testing I would offer the smaller outline sheets to organize thoughts quickly especially during timed tests of an hour or less. By the time we got to the small outline sheet, students were able to organize an outline and execute a five paragraph essay in 45 minutes. This gave a great advantage for testing.
Story outlines come in two modes. One outlines the beginning, middle, climax, etc..... and the other offers a more detail outline that utilizes numbers and such.
