Writing Organizer

Remember – A writing organizer is a way to briefly organize your thoughts so your paper will have flow and direction. You DO NOT need to write in full sentences or include EVERY WORD that you plan to use in your paper


Topic (Prompt): Multiple Intelligence
The idea of multiple intelligences suggests that there is more to intelligence than just your IQ score. This score alone often fails to predict how creative or successful a person will be in the real world. You may be intelligent in one or more of the eight multiple intelligences proposed by Dr. Howard Gardner. Using the information you studied on each intelligence and the Learning Styles survey completed in class, write a five paragraph essay explaining the which three intelligences you feel most apply to YOU. Essays not addressing the assigned topic will receive only half credit!
Write an essay explaining and giving examples of the three intelligences that you most strongly possess. Give specific examples to support your claim. As you write, remember your essay will be scored on the following basis:

  • Five paragraph essay including an introductory and concluding paragraph.

  • Introductory paragraph clearly states purpose and includes an attention grabber.

  • Support your purpose with meaningful reasons and sufficient details and examples.

  • Essay is organized in a clear, logical manner, including an introduction, body, and conclusion summarizing supporting points.

  • Proper sentence structure, including spelling and punctuation.

  • No proofreading errors.

Complete the following steps IN ORDER on the organizer on the following page. Then use the ideas to write your paper.
1. Brainstorm: Fill in purple section first. Write the three strongest intelligences you feel you have.

2. Your Topic Sentence: Next, fill in the orange section. Write the Topic Sentence you will use in your introductory paragraph in box. Include the three intelligences you listed in your Brainstorming boxes.

3. Attention Grabber (Hook): Write and interesting quote, fact or statistic about the topic in the green section. Make sure it is something the reader most likely doesn’t already know and DO NOT use a question! If you find the information online, give credit to where you found it. (i.e., “According to everydayhealth.com, fruits reduce cholesterol and reduce cancer risk.”)

4. Your Body Paragraphs: Support your claim with evidence in the aqua sections. Each body paragraph should contain supporting evidence for the reasons given in your Topic Sentence. Write the examples you will use to support each reason on the organizer—personal examples of how you demonstrate a particular intelligence.

5. Conclusion: Don’t forget to include a statement in your final paragraph that restates your claim (position) and summarizes the three intelligences you wrote about in the body of your paper.
