Product Description

As a student, I always used my own techniques for brainstorming and resented teachers that required me to brainstorm in a certain way or with a specific graphic organizer. For this reason, as a new teacher, I vowed to never require my students to brainstorm. That was a mistake. When my students didn’t take time to brainstorm, they produced disorganized or incoherent writing because they struggled to visualize their end goal. Reluctant to require brainstorming but understanding its importance, I began offering students a menu of brainstorming options. The act of brainstorming and visualization helps students better conceptualize their work. As teachers, we can reward this behavior by having students share or showcase their brainstorming. All you need to do now is print and use!
