Looking for a way to energize and excite your students about writing a persuasive essay? I have found my “In the Bag” 3d graphic organizer to successfully engage all my students in the prewriting process. Besides increased student participation and motivation I have found my students had a better understanding of the parts of a proficient essay after completing their 3D graphic organizer. Additionally,the organizer becomes an art project because the students decorate their bags with colorful designs and graphics relevant to the topic they are writing on.
This download is updated and includes several new features the original one does not have.
You will download:
*Student directions/rubric- a checklist with examples for students
*Step-by step Teacher directions
*7 Student templates with writing tips and strategies
Finally, after students have completed their organizer and used it to write their essay don’t put away the paper bags yet! Students’ paper bags can be used to make an interesting bulletin board. There is a photo example of how I developed a bulletin board with my students’ paper bag.
