PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

This product contains two sets of graphic organizers to help students with pre-writing when working on that stage of the writing process. One of the sets of graphic organizers teaches students how to use notes on index cards to write outlines: There are three pages that explain what information goes in the various parts of an outline and then two pages are a template that students can use to organize their information, with one additional page for writing a bibliography. The second set of graphic organizers shows students how to transform information on PowerPoint slides into an essay or composition: There is a chart that explains how information on PowerPoint slides can be used to write the introduction, body, and conclusion of an essay or composition; a graphic organizer for students to use when transferring information from their PowerPoint presentation to the written page; and a checklist for students to use after writing their first draft.

Please Note: This product is also available as part of a bundle that saves you over 25% of the cost if purchased separately. Click on the link below for more information about the bundle:

Two mini-posters are also included. One presents information about what an outline is and why it is useful to make one and the other mini-poster presents information about the features of an essay. Background information is provided in the Notes to the Teacher section. Being able to organize information is part of the ELA CCSS and this product helps students meet Writing Standards 4 and 5.

All the materials were designed to help students write non-fiction research reports and can be used for other types of writing as well. These materials have been used successfully with English Language Learners over many years. ELLs at WIDA Level 3 (Emerging) and higher will definitely benefit from using these organizers. Other students who need support with their writing will also find these organizers useful.
