1. The Writing Process: Definition & Steps
Writing is one of the most common ways we communicate. To be a successful writer, you should practice the five steps of the writing process: prewriting, drafting, revising, editing, and publication.
2. Stages of the Recursive Writing Process
To grow as a writer, you should spend time revisiting and reflecting on your work. When you do so, you are practicing recursive writing. Recursive writing allows you to rethink all stages of your writing.
3. How to Teach Writing
This lesson will focus on ways to teach students the writing process and will provide engaging ways to teach steps of the writing process and organize ideas while writing.
4. Teaching Paragraph Writing
Using published paragraphs as models in class can help students write stronger paragraphs through an examination of how authors utilize focus, organization, and evidence.
