Writing is a fluid process created by writers as they work. Accomplished writers move back and forth between the stages of the process, both consciously and unconsciously. Young writers, however, benefit from the structure and security of following the writing process in their writing.Students generate ideas for writing: brainstorming; reading literature; creating life maps, webs, and story charts; developing word banks; deciding on form, audience, voice, and purpose as well as through teacher motivation.
Students : -get their ideas on paper.
-proof their own work by reading aloud and reading for sensibility.
-share and make suggestions for improvement: asking who,what,when,where,why, and how questions about parts of the story the peer does not understand; looking for better words; and talking about how to make the work better.
-Work together on editing for mechanics and spelling.
-produce their final copy to discuss with the teacher and write a final draft.
-publish their written pieces: sending their work to publishers; reading their finished story aloud, making books.
