Use these essay outlines to help your students organize their thoughts when starting a five-paragraph essay. Each page consists of five blank paragraphs, with some reminders of what to write in the blanks. Students can "fill in the blanks" in any order as they are planning their essays. Complete sentences are optional at this planning stage! Each outline fits on one page, so students can visualize their entire essay at once.
This product includes four different five-paragraph essay outlines:
-Notes with pushpins
-Graphic-novel style (asks for text evidence)
Any of these four outlines can be used by students to jot down their ideas for their essays. The graphic-novel-style page is specifically for essays that require text evidence to back their claims--there are reminders on that page to use text evidence.
