Planning for writing is an important part of any writing instruction. It is the start of any writing process, and it is the place where ideas are hatched and organized. Instead of using messy web diagrams or clusters, adopt the "Number Notes" method that cleans up the prewriting process and makes NOT feel like they have to be artists to plan a writing assignment!!
