Help beginning writers by providing an outline to scaffold their writing while they learn to articulate their thoughts in a structured, non-fiction context. This outline is suitable for weaning students off of the use of detailed outlines. The outline leaves some points blank for them to fill in with their own thoughts and asks open-ended questions for them to answer in their essays to hone research, notetaking, and reading comprehension skills. The content requires the writer to build understanding of basic scientific concepts that explain eclipses to historical subject matter needed to write, as well as encouraging creativity and personal reflection. You can easily adapt this to suit grade level requirements.
An recent example student essay can be provided upon request.
