I use this general template for all the essays in my class. All portions of the essay are clearly organized and divided up to facilitate student understanding and success. This template can also be easily modeled to facilitate writing a composition beyond the original template for 6 paragraphs.
The thumbnail generator seems to make the boxes appear a little jumbled-- the formatting is intact, however. If for some weird reason it isn't, please just contact me and I'll be happy to email you a clean version.
