Students Benefit From Writing In Multiple Genres
Writing should consist of multiple types of writing in multiple genres. Make writing fun by offering brightly colored paper, an assortment of pencils and pens and/or the use of technology.
Write In a Diary or a Journal
A diary is a book in which you write down your personal experiences and thoughts each day. Students can improve their writing skills by writing each day. Teachers and parents can explicitly instruct students in writing techniques that can help young scholars to become highly effective writers. These tips help children to write with ease.
Make a List of Writing Ideas
The first question most people ask is, “What should I write about?”.
Having a list of writing ideas alleviates writer torment, anguish and fear of the blank page! With a ready made list, people now have things to write about. Keeping a running list of writing ideas ensures that the writer will never run out of ideas.
Keep a List:
On a piece of paper
In a notebook
On a cell phone, i-pad or electronic device
On a small notebook that fits in one’s pocket or bag
On the refrigerator
