Now, the words or phrases in the organizer will be given a power label.
Power 1
Power 1 means "what I am thinking/writing about."
Words like 'focus' and 'main idea' are abstract terms which refer to power 1 ideas.
Power 2
The ideas or words that you brainstormed underneath your Power 1 word will be given the label Power 2.
These are always words or ideas that "talk about" the Power 1 word. Words like 'supporting details' are, in fact, the same the Power 2 category.

Power writing is a strategy for writers to use to construct a logical paragraph.
Learning outcomes for this lesson:

1. to generate, gather, and organize ideas and information to write for an intended purpose and audience

2. to identify and order main ideas into supporting details and group them into units that could be used to develop a multiparagraph piece of writing.
Power 3
Power 3 sentences provide minor details that explain or support the Power 2 sentence.
