  • Gather as many examples as you can of the writing tasks your learners are required to undertake for their work, training or study
  • Identify the purposes for each of these tasks
  • Choose one or two tasks from the examples you’ve gathered, and practise mapping them
  • Use the guide, Appendix A.1 : Mapping writing tasks’ on pages 52-54 of Teaching Adults to Write to Communicate: Using the Learning Progressions to identify and map the demands of your writing task examples. (PDF of pages 52-54 here) You might find it useful to refer to the example of a mapped text, (a job application letter) in Appendix A.3 on pages 56-58. (Link to PDF of book)
  • Remember that you’re looking at what sort of texts your learners are expected to write to meet particular demands.
