Product Description
Three domains usually scored on state writing assessments are Focus, Content Development, and Organization. Starting out with a proper graphic organizer can improve your students’ scores in these areas. This lesson teaches the four/five-square model graphic organizer, and encourages students to “Keep Cracking” – keep opening those ideas for related details!

This presentation walks students through moving from a prompt to 'cracking open' ideas and details onto the four-square graphic organizer. Complete with multiple example prompts, this can be the very first lesson on organizing writing, or a review the week before the test.

If you haven't taught the four-square organizer yet, this lesson is ready to go. If you've taught it before, it's a great review.

The second half of the presentation contains eight prompts to crack open and plan on a four-square. Use it to give your students practice - so when they see the prompt, they're ready to plan!

This lesson can also be used over a week or two, completing one of the sample prompts each day.
