  • The key to teaching learners to apply their writing skills and knowledge to different texts and tasks is to build on something that they feel confident about. You need to find ways to get them to reflect on their writing, and experiment with deliberately using their knowledge and skills in different ways.
  • Use the same process that you used for the creative memory writing task to get the learners to develop a longer piece of writing. As with that task, they will think and plan, then write.
  • The intention is that you will be pulling this writing apart with them, deliberately drawing attention to particular language and text features in order to strengthen the text they have written and then apply that learning to different texts.
