How To Write Writing Activities


People sometimes think that writing is not as relevant as it used to be, because our students now spend so much time online that the traditional writing tasks and text types seem outmoded. However, although it is true that most people don’t handwrite as much as they used to, the growth of online activity means that we are generally writing much, much more than we did. So, writing is, in fact, a vital 21st century skill which needs to take a central role in any set of learning materials.
In this eBook Rachael Roberts, experienced teacher and ELT materials writer, outlines the issues specific to creating writing activities. She describes a variety of tasks focusing on different aspects of writing, ranging from a focus on purpose and organisation to specific language features. She also provides step-by-step instructions for analysing and writing a good model text. Having examined how to write a series of activities and model texts, this practical eBook focuses on the logical staging of the activities, and concludes with a discussion of some considerations if you are writing for digital media. Throughout the eBook, practical tasks and task commentaries invite you to think about the issues highlighted and try out the activities for yourself.
This eBook forms part of the ELT Teacher 2 Writer training course. The training modules are designed to help you write better ELT materials, either for publication, or simply to improve the quality of your self-produced classroom materials.
