Description

Forget giving an outline for students to mindlessly plug and chug. This CCSS-aligned lesson takes teaching organization one step further.

This lesson begins with students annotating mentor texts for where they find claim, evidence, and reasoning, and then creating a plan for how they’d like to organize their own.

The lesson is fully differentiate-able, with the option of having students design their own outline, use an advanced outline with extensive analysis, or use a basic, 5-paragraph outline--none of which they begin until after analyzing organization in example texts.

Rather than the 5-paragraph outline band-aid approach, it is a lesson that lets students examine the strategy in organization so that they can take charge of it in their own writing.

Note: As a pre-requisite for this lesson, students should have a bit of argumentative writing on a topic, or at least some thoughts about a topic, ready to go. The purpose of this lesson is to help students think through designing their organization in a strategic way.
