I use this in my classroom to help students write a 3.8 paragraph ( a paragraph with an introduction sentence, six sentences with reasons and expamples to support them, and an ending sentence). They only write ideas (a word or short phrase) in the 'reason' sections and 'example' sections. They write a full sentence for the topic and ending sentence. Then when they go to write their sentence they will write the introduction first, then the first reason with examples, the second reason with examples, and the third reason with examples. They end with the ending sentence. This tool will help them to organize their thoughts before writing a paragraph on their own. It could be used in a writing center once they understand how to use it.
