I use a simple method when writing that helps me quickly organize everything I am going to put in a piece without requiring a lot of time and effort.
Organization is critical to good writing because it keeps things in order and allows the logical separation of ideas, but when students get taught organization for writing (if they are even taught organization!) it often takes the form of rote formula.
I use a method I call the bubble method. It’s not sophisticated, but it’s scalable and helpful for very simple organization.
