Writing - Drafting and redrafting
Writing is more difficult than speaking. When you are speaking, you can use body language and gestures, repetition and corrections to get your point across. When you are writing, you only have the words.
In your first language, lots of writing tasks need to be planned before you put pen to paper. Drafting, editing and redrafting are a normal part of the writing process.
By focusing on this process, you can help your students develop their writing skills.
1. Students think of ideas for their writing without worrying too much if their ideas are important or not important.
