Step 1: Prewriting Worksheet

During the prewriting step write down everything and anything related to the prompt. Two techniques in identifying examples from daily life are freewriting and mapping.

??Freewriting can unlock thoughts and help the writer explore multiple possibilities
??Mapping can assist in generating details. Below is a description of the mapping
Prewriting Technique: Mapping

Select a topic to respond to the essay prompt, place the topic in a circle in the middle of a full sheet of paper or use one of the graphic tools on the computer. Then, draw lines radiating out from the center to other circles to represent subcategories of the topic. Students can go to several levels to create a more detailed map.

Look over the graphic and find the best ideas generated and begin to cluster ideas together in order to eventually create distinct paragraphs to use in the essay.
Step 2: Focusing Worksheet

Focusing is the process of identifying the audience the student is writing for as well as the purpose of the essay. Focusing can help students narrow the topic and write effective examples.

Directions: Consider the purpose and audience for the essay, and answer or consider these questions for the essay prompt and topic.

Purpose

1. Examine your freewriting or mapping to find the purpose of the essay.
2. Write a working thesis statement (a statement of purpose about the topic).
3. Try freewriting or mapping again, to see what examples come to mind.
4. Further narrow the thesis statement or give it better focus.

Audience

Imagine the readers of the essay and try to answer these questions:

1. Which readers would be interested in the topic?
2. What do readers already know about the topic?
3. What does the writer need to tell readers about the topic that they might not already know?
4. What are some examples that would relate well to these readers?

Step 4: Outlining and Drafting Worksheet

After organizing a tentative thesis, use the parts of an essay to outline the structure of the example essay. An essay has three major parts. Remember that the body contains development paragraphs. Each paragraph explains one point that supports the main idea, or thesis, of the essay. A minimum of three body paragraphs is required (as delineated below); that is, there will be three points that support the main idea.

A. Hook
