During writing workshop, I've seen a lack of planning of late. Sometimes it results in a story that has no focus. It's a story that's not zoomed in on the details of one small moment. Instead it's about several moments and all of them lack any depth. I recently created this chart in front of my writers as a tool for how to be better planners.
I also turned it into small table charts for my groups. Click on the picture for your own copy.
Earlier this fall I posted about I'm making smaller table charts from large charts as a way to help make my teaching stick. Look here if you're interested in seeing how I use and display them. You can also get yourself a copy of the first one I created.
Here's to better planners!
