Essay Planner Graphic Organizer

Essay Planner Graphic Organizer
Product Description
Do your students struggle to organize and plan essays effectively?

Well, this graphic organizer puts everything necessary for an effective essay onto ONE single-sided page. It models the essay structure most commonly taught for effective standardized test responses: introduction (hook & thesis), 2 body paragraphs (topic sentences & examples), and conclusion (restate thesis & new "hook").

All graphics are meant to represent the item they are referring to. So, for the hook, students should plan a fact, quote, question, and story. For body paragraph examples, students should draw from history, film/TV, sports, current events, and personal events. Once students have filled in this graphic organizer, the essay is mostly written.
