This product includes an Expository Graphic Organizer for planning a five-paragraph essay as well as a guide to brainstorming an essay. These materials are ideal for students beginning the process of expository writing. The graphic organizer breaks the planning process down into an introduction, body paragraphs, and a conclusion.
This ones for older students and can push students to use several different kinds of prompts in their writing. I love that it is visually stimulating and therefore students are more likely to refer to it when writing in class. It shows that there are many ways to evaluate a text and starting with each prompt can change the tone and content of your paragraph/essay. This can be used anytime my students are asked to analyze/evaluate a text, story, video, etc.
