This organizer is a simple way for your students to organize their thoughts when answering a writing prompt! The A is for Answer (answer the prompt). This becomes their topic sentence. The C is for Cite (evidence from the text). The E is for Elaborate or Explain (how does your evidence support your answer?). The S is for Summary (reiterate your answer to the question. This becomes the concluding sentence).
You'll be surprised how easily your students can use this organizer to create a beautiful paragraph!!
