For years, I have struggled to find or create an effective and complete graphic organizer for my students' research papers. This year, I finally experience success!
This product includes six graphic organizers to help your students write an opinion paper that appropriately incorporates evidence from multiple texts. Included are the following:
Introduction - Includes directions for possible hooks, a bridge, and a thesis statement.
Body Paragraphs - One page is just a simple graphic organizer. Three of the pages include different transitions to specifically guide students through the process of including and elaborating on evidence to support their opinion.
Conclusion - Includes directions for rephrasing the thesis, summarizing the body, and possible clinchers.
I hope you find this product helpful when guiding your students through the difficult writing process.
