  • When you have constructed some text together, (this may be the whole text, or a small part of a text) your learners will be ready to put into practice what you have shown them, and what they have learned.
  • For some learners it may be necessary to break the task down into small chunks. This means you might ask them to write three or four sentences on a topic, or a paragraph or two, depending on the context, rather than expecting that they will tackle a complete task from the beginning. For example, if they were writing a letter of application, the focus may be to write a good introduction to the letter.
  • When learners are writing by themselves, it is a good opportunity to provide specific feedback to them, related to their goals.
