This graphic organizer will help students create an outline for a 6 paragraph persuasive essay (while its set up for a persuasive essay, the outline can be adapted for many, many different uses).
Set up of the outline includes:
3 regular body paragraphs with spaces for a topic sentence, evidence #1, a connecting sentence, evidence #2 and a conclusion sentence.
The fourth paragraph is labeled as "opposing views" where students are to specifically address the opposing side and defend their opinion.
*Directions are also included.
I have used this many times with my students when they write their papers. For something so simple, it really is a miracle worker. Using this graphic organizer, they are looking at each individual piece of their paragraphs one at a time rather than just blindly writing. Once they finish with the outline, students' paragraphs are already written (they are always amazed when they realize this!).
