An INTERACTIVE GRAPHIC ORGANIZER for 11 SENTENCE PARAGRAPH writing, by Peter Sloan. This active PDF form, especially for SMARTBOARD and online use in teaching the writing process, can be filled out on the computer, saved, emailed, and printed. It can also be printed blank for use as a handout.

The "Transition" fields use drop-down menus to give common choices. The rest of the fields are text boxes that will fit any amount of text your student inputs, by shrinking the font size.
In addition, there is an active form for the student to write out their organizer sentences into the proper paragraph form. It uses black, Times Roman text to give a more academic finish.
In this version, the fields of the graphic organizer use COLOR CODED TYPE, great with SMARTBOARD and projectors. The Topic Sentence shows in Blue; the Concrete Details in Red; the Commentary in Green; the Concluding Sentence in Blue. Online and with color printers, the colors show. Otherwise, it prints in black.
For use with SMARTBOARD, the fields can be filled in on the SMARTBOARD to model the use of this graphic organizer. Excellent for taking your classroom online!
Other forms available to cover the writing process, from prewriting to finished product.
