This is a simple flow map that allows students to create an 8 sentence paragraph. Once completed, the paragraph will include a topic sentence, 3 detail sentences, 3 sentences which offer supporting details, and a conclusion sentence. I have used this with my reluctant writers and they have filled in each box with a full sentence. Once they are finished filling the map out, they just need to copy it onto paper and their rough draft is complete! This has helped the students see their work improve dramatically and has stopped the from asking that popular question..."How long does it have to be?"
