This new addition to the popular Four Square series helps prepare students for the writing assessment. Students will learn an organized, Four Square approach for brainstorming, as well as a simple three-step revision process to use on their initial drafts. On assessment day, teachers cannot confer with students, and students cannot assist one another. The writer must have a method to deliver their best writing on demand. That writing needs to be organized, focused, detailed, and engaging. The writer needs a plan on assessment day, and the Four Square plan is the best way to get the job done.Discuss the story elements, and show students the Four Square story graph. Point out that these same elements are in each of the squares of the Four Square (see the Four Square SAY aamp; DO Narrative Brainstorming Template on page 22).
