Essay Writing Resources
This is a template I use to help students plan and write a 5 paragraph essay. It helps make the essay writing process less intimidating and easier to organize. The "boxed" format prevents off topic overlap from one paragraph to the next. It helps those students who struggle with adding content to their paragraphs by give bulleted space for each idea. I have used this template with grade 7s with great success. Once the student has the completed the graphic organizer the essay almost writes itself. The .PDF template is available in the link below.
