This is an organizer and planner for the most common type of essay for higher level students--the five paragraph essay.
The organizer/planner acts as an outline for the student with blocks for the introduction, 3 body paragraphs and a conclusion. There is also a separate block for the thesis statement to emphasize its importance, and a section for notes.
Each block has a description of what each section should contain. For example, at the top of the thesis statement block it lists what makes a strong thesis statement.
This organizer/planner will help train students to use an informal outline to guide them through the writing process. It is also easily customized for your classroom use!!
