• Tell students to work on their essay planner independently; they will have a chance to get feedback from a peer during the next lesson. • Circulate as students are working. Push students to be clear and explicit in their plan. • If students need extra help based on their exit tickets from Lesson 14, consider working with individual students or small groups during this time. • If students are ready for a challenge, push them to include three or four body paragraphs in their essay instead of two. • For students who may need more support planning their essay, a model essay planner (optional) is included in the supporting materials. This handout shows how the author of the model essay might have filled out a complete planner for this essay. Consider using it as an example as you work with individuals or small groups who would benefit from additional support.
