Larkin Essay Planning

I’m working on my exemplar Larkin essay for discussion in tomorrow’s lesson and thought I should share the planning tool I’m using.

I like using mindmaps/brainstorming before I write anything of importance… and an essay certainly falls into that category! 😉 One of the most useful – and free – tools I have discovered is It has a limited toolset, but for me, this is its real strength. One can spend more time just quickly jotting down ideas and links, and anything that speeds up the planning process has to be worth thinking about!

I’ve embedded my planning below for you to see what I’m thinking about as I work on my essay… feel free to share your own plans on future essays… that way we can all get a sense of how we can improve our plans.
