This graphic organizer follows the format I used at the school I taught at last year. This helps students when they need to add more detail/explanation when they are responding to a text. ESSC stands for: Echo (Restate/Answer), Support #1, Support #2, and Concluding Sentence (which should connect to the echo). I added the EXPLAIN boxes because it's important for students to also explain WHY the details or evidence they chose were meaningful to what the question was asking. For gifted writers, they can use this graphic organizer as a checklist more than anything.
