Grade Anchor Chart I know this is a bit juvenile for high school, but I swear, sometimes I think it couldn't hurt! It just needs to be revamped so it looks and reads better for older kids.

This ABC Brainstorming "Writing to Learn" (WtL) strategy can be used by students to record background knowledge, or to review what students have learned so far. It gets their minds thinking about a topic before/after a content-area lesson! ** ABC Brainstorming can also be used as a pre-writing tool for the writing process!
Used for writing topics
I've used this idea before, but I like the simplicity of this format.
