Use this thinking map (inspired by the Write from the Beginning training) to scaffold, model and help students better organize their writing. This model can be used for expository, persuasive/argumentative writing and narrative writing. You do not need any knowledge or training in the research based writing program. It can be used to compliment any writing program you currently teach or use it by itself! You will be so impressed with the well organized writing your students can produce with a little additional support :) Common core aligned!
