This is a great pre-writing activity for the students. It breaks down a standard essay into five parts. This is like a GPS for the writing process. Really helps students organize their thinking and it also helps them develop their ideas. This essay outline can be used for any subject area in middle and high school. I have used this for the past eight years and it has helped my students tremendously! Enjoy!
