The Writing Process by Mind Map: The Writing Process

1.1. Choosing A Topic: Letting student choose their own topic that they are writing about will help them be more engaged.

1.2. Establish the purpose and genre of the writing assignment.

1.3. Organize your ideas and thoughts through graphic organizers.

2. Drafting

3. Revising

3.1. Reread the rough draft after a couple days after it was completed.

3.2. As they reread the students should be looking for corrections and making sure everything flows and makes sense.

3.3. Students then conference with groups so they can give feedback on the rough-draft and suggest possible revisions.

3.4. After all of the feedback students will now make their own revisions to their papers.

3.5. Teachers can create a checklist to give to students when revising their own work or someone else work.
