As a tool for learning, such as when children write in reading logs. 5. To make and publish books. 6. To document learning in literature focus units and thematic units.
  12. 12. Writing Strategies use by a Writer - are deliberate thinking procedures writers use to solve problems that they encounter while writing.
  13. 13. Stage 1: Prewriting • Choose a topic. • Gather and organize ideas. • Consider the audience to whom students will write. • Identify the purpose of the writing activity. • Choose an appropriate genre for their compositions based on audience and purpose.
  14. 14. Stage 2: Drafting • Write a rough draft. • Craft leads to grab readers’ attention. • Emphasize content rather than mechanics.
  15. 15. Stage 3: Revising • Share writing in writing groups. • Participate constructively in discussions about classmates’ writing. • Make changes in compositions to reflect the reactions and comments of both teacher and classmates. • Make substantive rather than only minor changes between the first and final drafts.
  16. 16. • 8. Study in a calm and organized place
  17. 17. Stage 4: Editing • Proofread compositions independently. • Help proofread classmates’ compositions. • Increasingly identify and correct mechanical errors without assistance.
  18. 18. Stage 5: Publishing • Publish writing in appropriate form. • Share finished writing with an appropriate audience.
  19. 19. English is the foremost spoken language in the whole world. That’s why it is absolutely crucial for you to know how to develop good writing skills in English. Unfortunately, not everything can be learned from the classroom. A little extra help can go a long way.
  20. 20. If you want to develop good writing skills in English, you’re going to have to write something at some point. A lot of people who keep journals are able to practice their English very well. I suggest you do the same as well.
  21. 21. You’re able to see how people use certain words or construct sentences apart from the examples on your language handout or references. Plus, you’ll also gain more confidence in your own writing style.
  22. 22. • 5. Study alone
  23. 23. If you’re not a fan of books, you can always read short stories or feature articles online. Even some magazines will help you develop good writing skills in English.
  24. 24. Part of the ways on how to develop good writing skills in English is feedback. How else would you know how good or bad your work is unless you show it to others? A lot of people fear this stage because they don’t really want to hear others criticize their work.
  25. 25. Even successful authors need to keep learning how to develop good writing skills in English. You can’t remain stagnant just because you’re too lazy to read or write or too afraid to hear what other people think. You have a lot more potential than you realize.
  26. 26. 2. Shared Writing - teacher and students create the text together ; then the teacher does the actual writing. Students may assist by spelling words. Purposes: 1. To demonstrate how to writing works. 2. To record students’ idea. 3. To create written texts for the classroom that children could not write independently.
  27. 27. 3. Interactive Writing - teacher and students create the text and share the pen to do the writing. Teacher and students talk about writing conventions. Purposes: 1. To demonstrate how to write words and sentences. 2. To teach how to use capital letters and punctuation marks. 3. To demonstrate how to use phonics and spelling patterns to spell words. 4. To create written texts for the classroom that children could not write independently.
  28. 28. 4. Guided Writing - teacher presents a structured lesson and supervises as students write. Teacher also teaches a writing procedure, strategy, or skill. Purposes: 1. To scaffolding a writing experience so that students can be successful. 2. To introduce different types of writing activities 3. To teach children to use the writing process in particular, how to revise and edit. 4. To teach procedures, concepts, strategies, and skills during minilessons. 5. Independent Writing - students use the writing process to write stories, informational books, and other compositions. Teacher monitors students’ progress.
