Product Description
This product includes three, three-page reverse outline organizers designed for student essay analysis and reflection for synthesis, argument, and rhetorical analysis.

These reverse outlines are an effective method for students to analyze their own writing, thought processes, and organization, and then can be used for revision or for improvement on future essays. They could also be effective in illustrating what another author does in his/her text.

After I score an essay, I hand it back and students must record what the reverse outline organizer asks them to document. The corresponding questions in each box ask them to further reflect on the items in that paragraph. As my students work through one of these in class, I have discovered that they quickly identify their problem areas, especially with thesis statements and topic sentences.

The reverse outline should also illustrate the importance of (or lack of) a plan before writing!
