Getting learners to talk about their positive experiences as writers is one way to build their awareness of themselves as writers.

Watch Paora Howe talking about the “appreciative enquiry” approach.

Paora - appreciative inquiry

Ask learners questions like:

  • When did you write something that you were really proud of?
  • When have you written something that you thought was well worth saying?
  • What is the one piece of writing that you think of when you consider your writing history? Why do you think of that?
  • What is the best piece of writing that you have ever heard or read?
