Graphic organizer for dissecting essay prompts. This product includes notes with a large group practice prompt, five additional essay prompts for independent practice, large and small graphic organizer sheet and instructions. The SKI process helps students break apart difficult essay prompts into the basic components in order to ensure they understand the prompt and and what it is asking them to do. It also ensures they include their source and key terms in their response. The graphic organizer helps them visualize the different components of the prompt and helps make it more manageable. I use this method with my middle school students throughout the year and when preparing for standardized testing. It has helped tremendously!
