This Prewriting PowerPoint presentation,
encourages kids to generate ideas about their writing topics by using various types of graphic organizers. The graphic organizers presented include:
simple and more complex webs
plot maps, and
three-column information charts.
With this prewriting resource, students are provided examples and then given the opportunity to try each type of organizer on their own. Students learn that certain types of organizers are best suited to particular types of essays. A student notebook page is also included that can be printed out in advance for students to complete as they view the slides.
