This ready-to-use graphic organizer will help students arrange ideas and communicate more effectively when writing papers, as well as facilitate understanding of key concepts by allowing students to visually identify key points and ideas more efficiently.
The blank graphic organizer is divided into 11 sections, one for each paragraph. The students write the main idea followed by five details for each paragraph, not in sentence form but in a few words. Separate grids for the introduction and conclusion paragraphs are included. Even though there are 11 paragraphs, the organizer can be reduced to include as many paragraphs as you desire. If students are required to write a paper that is about two pages in length (500 words) when typed; this will work well in getting them to that point. It is expected that every sentence was to contain at least five interesting words and each paragraph must consist of five good sentences.
I trust your students will find this graphic organizer easy to use and a helpful aid in writing papers.
