This is a great essay planner that not only breaks down the parts of an essay, but also the parts of each paragraph. I spend a great deal of time emphasizing quotation integration when I use this assignment, so that students know how to properly gather and integrate evidence.
Depending on your learners, this planner typically takes a week to complete, and then students would need roughly 2-3 hours to further type and edit their final essays. I like to use google classroom when they are typing; this way I can edit as they work.
This planner could easily be adapted for other forms of essays, but the paragraph breakdown is extremely helpful.
