School Writing – A Process

Frequently students have difficulty with writing. Sometimes they get stuck on ideas. Other times they are not sure that what they are writing is correct.

A process to help a student with writing involves planning before writing. A student should take the topic and list as many ideas about it that is possible. For example, let’s say the student has been asked to write about a vacation. Have the student write – perhaps in bullet note form- all the ideas of things that happened on the vacation. Then have the student organize the ideas that go together to create paragraphs. Then the student can decide in what order to write the paragraphs.

Next, the student can write what is required. The student should take the information directly from the planning that was done.
