Have a look at How To Write Better Essays by Greetham. It talks about unpacking the title/question which starts to suggest structures/plans. It's quite good.

Also, mentioned in that book, and it's interesting seeing as you mentioned both essay planning and revision, is this about reasons why to plan your essays:

Revision material
If you've planned the essay well, so that it's got a clear structure, you'll find, when it comes to preparing for the final exam, that the plan itself is just about the most important revision material you have. It shows you how you've come to understand the topic, and how you've organised the ideas. As such, it is the one thing that you will be able to recall and use most effectively under timed conditions. In fact, many students who plan well use just these clearly organised thought patterns as their only revision material.
