your Ideas: In
this format you will now take the ideas you have written down
randomly and organize them. This part of the program allows
you to use graphic organizers to put your ideas in a logical
order. You have three options: Clustering (Webbing),
Timeline, and Venn Diagram.
Clustering option is illustrated at left but each of these graphic
organizers has its purpose.
Clustering is the general-purpose method of graphically
organizing any type of story or essay. Clustering is called
by a number of names including webbing, but the essentials
always remain the same: you identify your main
ideas and then connect your details to them.
Timelines can be used for any type of descriptive writing
that is sequential in nature. Timelines are not the traditional
type of timeline you are used to. It is a graphic organizer
that is perfect for types of writing that are sequenced such
as directions and recipes.
Venn Diagrams are useful when you want to compare and contrast
two concepts.Venn Diagram is the ideal format for doing compare
and contrast essays.
