I have never been particularly fond of store-bought writing posters, as I have found that the font is usually too small and students sitting further away from the poster have difficulty seeing it, so then the resource becomes practically useless. I also wanted a product that was tailor made to the way I teach writing to my second grade students.
This writing poster models how to set up an outline for a persuasive piece of writing.
I know that often times, three details are used to support a thesis statement. However, I use the ice cream model of main idea (thesis) and details, as I believe that sometimes you only have one or two good details and not three. Quality over quantity. Therefore, students can use the outline to record however many details they need to effectively support their thesis.
I made the font as large as possible considering this is meant for an 8.5" by 11" poster.
The poster has been created to look like a looseleaf piece of paper. I print on cardstock and hang up in the classroom for students to reference.
