3 Writing Tasks to make your learner's writing more effectively and understandably

Topic: Technics for Writing Tasks,
Skill Focused: Writing,
Grade: Primary and Lower Secondary.
                                  Many students find it difficult to write in a cohesive, interesting and fluent style.  When we ask students to write, often we are just testing their skills rather than teaching them how to write or how to improve their writing.
                   Sometimes, stating clear rules and expectations is just not enough. It may not work for every student of yours. That’s why you should also take a “lighter” path. What does that mean? It means that you can use non-intrusive motivation techniques that will inspire your students instead of scaring them. As a teacher, your role is to help each and every student improve themselves, acquire new skills, and become a better individual by the end of their time spent in school.
                      So here are my three technics to make your learners deep diggers in writing.

1. Picture Writing:
                     For students experiencing difficulty in this area, it is beneficial to break the elements of writing into small, specific steps, teach these steps systematically and then provide opportunities for these steps to be practised individually before combining into a large piece of writing. So picture writing or timeline writing will help your learners to connect and memorize the events of a story or the content.
                     Such worksheets will also help them to write from the bottom of their heart and describe creatively as a writer. So this could be a great help to teachers instead of saying to write about your trip or event simply. And pictures will brainstorm to write in a corrective way. 



Bird's Eye View Writing:
                      Effective writing is a necessity, not only for academic success but also for active participation in our society. Support students’ attempts by providing the necessary level of scaffolding until mastery of the strategy is achieved. So we know writing is an output skill that can convey our message, ideas, and views to others. And its also used as an evaluation of the learning process.
                             So presentation through writing or speaking is important and also students have to write or express what they have learned in the classroom. So theme-based writing or bird's eye view writing is one of the good writing strategies for students to write about a story or an event. It means consolidating or summarizing a story or an event. So students have to summarize the story which they listen or read. So for such tasks, prepare such puppets and ask them to write the brief of the story. The puppet or picture helps them to recall the story and theme easily. This can help them to ignite their creativity and language skills to shrink the story.
                     




4 Questions:
                    It is also one of the good writing tasks. Prepare some questions related to a story, city or an event. And ask them to write answers to the questions. Such tasks help them to concentrate or think on some specific matter of the given topic. And students can also think diversely and they can easily consolidate and write a paragraph joining the answers next.



             These tasks will help us to create interest among learners and also develop writing skills. Slow learners also participate actively in writing tasks. Hope you enjoy the post. Thank you.
