This graphic organizer provides a step by step scaffold for students to see clearly how to structure an essay, specifically a persuasive or argumentation essay. Students will benefit from seeing how the structure of this graphic organizer helps them organize their arguments. The graphic organizer also introduces the concept of outlining and it guides students toward organizing their thoughts. It includes a reminder that transitions need to be part of the writing process as well. This graphic organizer was developed for my SDC/SDP English class but it should also help students in the general education setting who struggle with organizing a coherent argument.
