Four square writing method for organizing paragraphs for the younger grades or essays for the older grades. Our special ed. teacher showed me this. I think I might try it to help my 4th graders to organize their persuasive essays.
Four Square Writing is an easy and effective way to engage students in writing. There is a given topic sentence and four squares for writers to creatively express themselves. During this process students will learn how to write detail sentences that will form a well constructed paragraph for their draft and final copy.
