This pack includes four different graphic organizers to help students learn an outline format. While some students prefer other types of planning, I have always had students who appreciated the order of an outline. However, some students still have difficulty visualizing each paragraph, which is why some of the paragraphs are outlined to help students make that distinction. Some of the outlines provide prompts, while others don't. Using different forms of graphic organizers can help students learn which is the most effective way for them to plan their writing so that they will be able to create their own graphic organizers when expected to do so without teacher direction.
