  • Loss of student focus / interest

  • Not suited to some personalities

  • Students need to be taught it (peer editing / planning / stages)

  • Restricts spontaneity and range of writing activities.


  • The creation of a product

  • Writing seen as a communicative and purposeful activity

  • Student collaboration is developed.

  • Feedback and response given.
