This is a really helpful graphic organizer for writing. Students can use it for any genre of writing, and it helps them craft strong, focused paragraphs. Their thesis statement goes in box #1, and then their supporting evidence points and concluding sentences go in the remaining boxes. It also prompts them to come up with a transition word, if necessary.
This can be used for creating one paragraph or for creating an essay with multiple paragraphs, with each box representing a different paragraph.
