TEACHING WRITING

  • To be truth-full I am for the argument about wasting time and money trying to get around the world in a hot air balloon, when this time and money could be spent on working with medical difficulty or people who are homeless.

  • I feel it is very important to face challenges, as without challenges, the world would be a very dull place. I feel that the earlier challenges appear in a person’s life, the better, as there will undoubtedly be challenges in the workplace or in home life, and so I feel that the people who have faced challenges earlier in life get a head start over people who have not.

  • Reading aloud

  • Showing models

  • Highlighting genre features

  • Correcting first drafts

  • Lots of bullet-points after the task

TEACHING WRITING

Before ….

It was a bitterly cold day. Everyone was in black. The cars were black too. There were people standing around in a group waiting for the coffin. Crows were flying in the sky. It was really eerie.


Teaching writing18

Using models

TEACHING WRITING

After ….

The undertaker's men were like crows, stiff and black, and the cars were black, lined up beside the path that led to the church; and we, we too were black, as we stood in our pathetic, awkward group waiting for them to lift out the coffin and shoulder it, and for the clergyman to arrange himself; and he was another black crow in his long cloak.

And then the real crows rose suddenly from the trees and from the fields, whirled up like scraps of blackened paper from a bonfire, and circled, caw-caw-ing above our heads.

GB’s Final Thoughts

TEACHING WRITING

  • See things as a writer, not just a reader

  • Explore texts actively - meddling, rewriting, editing

  • Demonstrate the writing process yourself

  • Relate everything to effect

  • Talk about grammar where it helps, not as an end in itself

  • Start with small units of writing … then build up

  • Encourage experimentation, risk-taking, creativity

  • Enjoy!
