This short video explores why it is helpful to think about indenting in writing. Visual formatting of different text types is something you can explore with your learners. The final text needs to look like the text type expected for that context. For example, does a filled in form look like a filled in form? Does a workbook answer look like a workbook answer? Is your text formatted correctly according to the text type? Looking at the way different texts are formatted is an awareness raising exercise that can be done via an initial focus on how texts are indented.
