provided prompts. During brainstorming, they might fill in graphic organizers such as K-W-L Charts, word webs,
mind maps, or basic outlines. This process helps students organize their thinking and also gives teachers a chance to
review gaps in schemas, vocabulary, or grammatical patterns the student might need to fill in to complete the first draft.
