- Begin with a topic the learners are interested in.
- Talk over what they want to write. Help the learner write ideas or words they may need.
- Write a rough draft. Explain to the learners that all writers use a rough draft.
- Encourage learners to proofread their work. Underline words they are not sure of. This is a good time to practice dictionary skills.
- Read over the piece of writing together. A piece of writing can always be changed, or you can add more information.
