The Writing Process

Six Stages of the Writing Process Prewriting Drafting Revising Editing Evaluating Publishing

Slide 3

Prewriting Think, Think, Think… Who is my audience? My classmates, teacher, a community member, a younger student… Do they have any knowledge of my topic? Will I need to provide background knowledge? What is my purpose? Am I writing to provide information, to persuade, to find out information, or to tell a story?

Slide 4

Prewriting Think, Think, Think… What do I want to say? What are the requirements that I have to have? Do I need to research information to complete my writing? How do I want to say it? Am I writing a letter, creating a book or PowerPoint, an essay… What graphic organizer will I use? Brainstorm ideas on a piece of paper, create a web, put the information into a Venn Diagram…

Slide 8

Prewriting Your Turn: Choose a topic that interests you. You will need to complete the prewriting stage. This may be something you did over the summer, a sport that you like, or anything you can think of. Go through the steps of the prewriting stage. Refer to your notes if you need help.

Slide 9

Drafting Write it down… Are my thoughts organized? Do I stick with the same idea throughout my writing? Do I know what order I want to say things in? Which ideas do I want to develop? On your prewriting identify the ideas which you must use, might use, and will not use. Do not cross anything totally out. You may decide at a later time to use it. What ideas should I develop further?

Slide 10

Drafting Write it down… In what order do I want to say my ideas? On your prewriting, number your thoughts or ideas. Place them in the order that would make the most logical sense. If you are dealing with time, make sure they are in chronological order. Did I skip lines? This will allow room for yourself and others to make corrections. Did I label everything? My name is on the page and all pages have a page numbers.

Slide 11

Drafting Now you try… Take your prewriting that you completed previously, and begin drafting it. Remember, this is not a time to worry about spelling or other errors. This a time to get your thoughts on the paper. The other stages will help you with the grammatical and spelling errors. Be creative!

Slide 12

Revising Improve your writing… Are my details clear? Are my words descriptive? Did I use repetitive words? Should I add or take out parts? Do I need to explain more? Is there something missing that I should include? Is my writing in a sensible order? Does my writing need to be in time order? Does the information need to be presented in a way that is easy for others to follow?

Slide 13

Revising Improve your writing… Have I used the best ideas or words? Am I showing others that I know what I am writing about? Have I used the best examples or words to describe my ideas or thoughts?

Slide 14

Revising Your turn: Keep it up… You have been working really hard on your writing…now make it look your best! Read over your writing. Make sure the content makes sense to the reader. You may need to read it out loud to yourself. Consider reading it more than once.

Slide 15

Editing Correct your work… Have I used complete sentences? All of my thoughts are complete. There are no run-ons. Are my language conventions correct? Spelling Capitalization and punctuation Grammar Have I used editing marks to make corrections? Remember to look in your writing folder if you forgot what to use.

Slide 16

Editing Correct your work… Have I had a peer edit my paper? Editing others work… Make sure to check for the same items you did when editing your own work. Check for complete sentences, check the language conventions, and use editing marks for corrections.

Slide 17

Editing Editing Marks… insert indent (Paragraph) check spelling delete capitalize lower case insert period

Slide 18

Editing Your Turn: Here we go… Your writing has come a long way. You need to make sure to fix the errors. On your revised copy, be sure to make any necessary corrections. Refer back to your notes if you need help. You must edit someone’s paper.

Slide 19

Evaluating: Reflecting and Assessing your work ~ A one page reflection: Do you like what you have written? Why or why not? Is this your best work? Explain What did you learn? (about your writing, topic, and your skills) Assess your work: grade and explain why you gave it that grade

Slide 20

Evaluating Now it is your turn. Re-read your work and write a reflection Staple your reflection to the back of the final copy

Slide 21

Final Draft (Publishing) Skip lines Have paragraphs Write or type neatly Make your corrections Title your paper (in the header) Don’t forget your name and date This is the final draft: the one that will be graded

Slide 22

Final Draft Your turn: The finish line… Take your writing through the final stage. You may choose to either type your writing or hand write it on paper. Be sure to reread your work before turning it in. Self-assess your work using the rubric given to you. Show your BEST work!

Slide 23

Publishing Get ready to share… Did I do my best work? Did I include a title (if needed)? Is my final copy neat? Should I illustrate the pages? (If needed) You may use the computer to create this or draw your own. Should I read it out loud?

Slide 24

Publishing Turning it in… What order does my work go in? Final Copy Reflection Any Drafts (Please label these pages with DRAFT at the top). Prewriting Rubric
