The Five Stages of Writing
  • Prewriting
  • Drafting
  • Revising
  • Editing
  • Publishing

4
Prewriting
  • Think, Think, Think
  • Who is my audience?
  • My classmates, teachers, parents
  • Do they have any knowledge of my topic?
  • Will I need to provide background knowledge?
  • What is the purpose of my writing?
  • Am I writing to provide information, to persuade,
    to describe something, or to tell a story?

5
Prewriting
  • Brainstorm and Organize
  • What do I want to say?
  • What are the requirements ?
  • Do I need to research information or graphics 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 and write them down, create a
    web, put the information into a diagram.
  • Create an online Essay Map.

Prewriting
  • You may create your own graphic organizer or
    choose and print one from the websites below.
  • http//www.eduplace.com/graphicorganizer/
  • http//www.writedesignonline.com/organizers/
  • http//www.teachervision.fen.com/graphic-organizer
    s/printable/6293.html
  • Use the appropriate graphic organizer that helps
    you come up with great ideas.

9
Prewriting (essay)
  • You may create your own Essay Map or print one
    from this website.
  • http//www.readwritethink.org/files/resources/inte
    ractives/essaymap/
  • The online Essay Map automatically generates
    ideas into a standard five paragraph essay
    structure.
  • This map provides the big picture before
    proceeding to the next stage.

10
Prewriting
  • Use your Learner Group.
  • We always complete prewriting together in
    class.
  • Use the group to help you generate ideas that
    interest you, or that you already know something
    about.
  • Complete all the steps of prewriting before
    starting to write.

11
Drafting
  • Write it down
  • Are your thoughts organized?
  • Do you stick with the same idea throughout your
    writing?
  • Do you know what order you want to say things in?
  • Which ideas do you want to develop?
  • In your prewriting, you have identified 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 you develop further?

12
Drafting
  • Write it down
  • In what order do you want to say your ideas?
  • In your prewriting, your thoughts or ideas have
    been placed 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.

13
Drafting
  • Now you try
  • Take the prewriting material 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!

14
Revising
  • Improve your writing content
  • 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?

15
Revising
  • Improve your writing content
  • 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?
  • 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 easier for others to follow?

16
Revising
  • Keep it up
  • You have been working really hard on your
    writingnow make it look your best! Read over
    your writing. Make sure the content will make
    sense to the reader. Read it out loud to
    yourself.
  • It is helpful to write a second or revised
    draft at this stage.

17
Editing
  • Correct errors
  • 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.

18
Editing
  • Correct errors
  • Have I had at least two people edit my paper?
  • Choose two people in your learning group, that
    are on the editing stage. If no one is, you may
    choose to look over your work again. Be sure to
    check after a few minutes to see if someone is
    ready.
  • 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.

19
Editing
  • Editing Marks
  • insert
  • indent
  • check spelling
  • delete
  • capitalize
  • lower case
  • insert period

20
Editing
  • Here we go
  • Your writing has come a long way. You need to
    make sure to fix the errors. On your revised
    draft, be sure to make any necessary corrections.
    Refer back to your writing folder if you need
    help. You must edit your paper along with two of
    your learner group.

21
Publishing
  • Get ready to share
  • Did I do my best work?
  • Did I include a title ?
  • Do I need a title page with illustrations?
  • Did I meet submission date?
  • Be sure to reread your work.
  • Self-assess your work using the rubric given to
    you.

22
Publishing
  • Typing your work
  • Get onto a computer connected to the internet.
  • Create a file in Word or PowerPoint,
  • or direct to webpage.
  • Read it again.
  • Make certain that your work meets the 1 Trait
    standards.
