Essay Brainstorming & Organization

In eight years, I have taught about 1,000 middle school students and 990 of them struggled to plan and organize their essays. This session will show a one-plan-fits-all procedure to plan an essay around a thesis statement.

Class Experience

Students will understand the fundamental importance of planning. Students will be able to approach the task of writing an essay with a strategy and steps.
I have been teaching essay organization and writing to adolescents and teenagers for seven years. I have a great method and have developed and sold this curriculum to hundreds of teachers through Teachers Pay Teachers. It works!
Students can complete the essay plan during class, and submit the completed essay after class to receive feedback. 
I will provide my essay planning sheet of awesomeness for your learner to use for any future writing assignments. They should be able to open this and write on it with some type of word processor. I can share it through Google Docs or as a .docx file.
Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
I will provide feedback on all student's essays, or just the plan, if they submit them to the classroom when class is over. This feedback will offer a praise and a polish :) 
55 minutes per week in class, and an estimated 0 - 1 hours per week outside of class.
