Product Description
This is a simplified, step-by-step writing support for struggling writers. I use these graphic organizers most with students who have writing accommodations and modifications.

The graphic organizer sets up a general five paragraph essay in sentence-by-sentence format. Students are prompted to write one sentence in each box, making the task manageable. The boxes give a visual cue to both teacher and student as to whether or not the paragraph/essay is complete. This is a very basic organizer. Students then rewrite their essay in paragraph format and can be encouraged to edit or add more at that time.

The graphic organizer uses a thesis-based approach to writing, requiring students to write a thesis in the first paragraph and organize the rest of the paper from the thesis.

Support struggling writers with a fully structured research paper writing unit:
