This is a great graphic organizer and planner for students just learning the structure and components of a five-paragraph essay. This particular graphic organizer is designed for argument or persuasive writing. The organizer breaks down the essay into an introduction, three body paragraphs, and a conclusion.

This is a good way to help students see the main idea of a nonfiction piece. It also helps them summarize a story so they can use this paper to reference the work later without searching the entire document again. Finally, it is a good way to show them that all good work has main points that are supported by details.

Metacognition anchor chart - I like the Venn diagram-esque graphic comprehension students being able to see how what the text says and what their thinking comes together to create Real Reading

Great organizer when you want students to come up with questions or ponderings about a story or particular subject--could use for group discussion too! (Free Download)
