We’ve spent some time thinking about ways to motivate learners to write, and to get them writing.
The next step is to get them thinking more about how they write – to build their awareness of the process of writing.
The key idea is that writers all have to work at writing, and although there is no one single writing process, most writing tasks require writers to:

  • have something to write about
  • organise their ideas
  • get it down (the first draft)
  • revise and redraft to improve or clarify what they’ve written
  • check it carefully to make sure there are no technical errors

Some, but not all, writing is then published for others to read.
