6 Creative Writing Tasks for Better, Understandable and Effective Writing

Topic: Techniques for writing tasks, Skill Focused: Writing, Grade: Primary and Lower Secondary.                                                       Writing is one of the biggest challenges for teachers. Because children do not want to write. Especially in second language classrooms, teachers are facing big trouble in giving writing tasks.  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. So teachers need to encourage their learners by assigning interesting writing activities.                             So, here are my techniques to help learners dig deeper when they write. These six c reative writing tasks help learners for better, understandable, and effective writing.   1. Picture/ Scene Writing:                   We know that students draw on their experience of reading when shaping their own writing. Usually, stories have different connected scenes.

Topic: Techniques for writing tasks, Skill Focused: Writing, Grade: Primary and Lower Secondary.                          Supporting students to tune into the creativity needed for writing through a range of experiences is key to developing imagination and ideas for writing in all forms. Actually, writing is intricately linked to critical thinking. It also has implications for performance across all areas of the language. Writing is how a child shows what he or she knows and what has been learned. 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 all your students. 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 eac
