Do your students need help in figuring out what to write from a given prompt? These two graphic organizer options are to teach students how to break down a writing prompt and figure out what they are actually being asked to write about.
2 Graphic Organizers to choose from:
1) Have students work through seven different prompts focusing on what they need to write on and what evidence and example they will use in their essay. After all seven are broken down, have the students choose one to work on further with planning, thesis, intro, or complete essay.
2) Have students cut and paste, write, or type one writing prompt into the first cell. Then have students work to break down that one prompt for an in depth brainstorming and planning.
First step in writing a great essay is knowing what they want you to write about...this helps.
