Literacy Ideas Involved

Positive outcomes for Brainstorming inside categories:

  • Brainstorming inside categories created many opportunities for discussion and sharing of ideas before writing

  • Students found it easier to think of their own ideas inside this framework thus were less tempted to plagiarise

  • The greater number of ideas made it easier for students to create more than one paragraph

  • After brainstorming, both main points and details were then able to be identified

  • This meant that paragraph structure and paragraph content was easier for students to organise and write

  • Students saw they could apply Brainstorming Within Categories to other contexts such as friendly letters, business letters or letters of complaint - or even ideas for CVs and CV cover letters

  • Student confidence to start writing increased just by knowing they have a tool like C-H-E-E-S-E to work with

  • Other acronyms can be invented and used as frameworks for different writing genre
