  • For the purpose of this article, it does NOT relate to Handwriting!

    I don’t know what to write!  I don’t know how to start!

    At TIC Tuition in Campbelltown, parents often tell us that their children say this when a writing task is needed to be completed at home.

    Why teach writing?

    The main thing about writing is having something to say (the content), the way we say it (conventions of writing) and a purpose for it (the text types).

    So, what do we need to do when we write?

    We combine the content (an idea or message) and the conventions of writing (spelling, punctuation and grammar) with the appropriate text type. All writing is created for a particular audience and is written according to the appropriate text type.

    What do we do when we write?

    We have to concentrate on the task and purpose of the writing. We need to generate the ideas and put these ideas into a plan.

    We have to decide on the text type to use and stick to it. We must use the right words and put them into a logical order.

    We must pick up a pen (or sit at the computer) and actually do it! AND we must concentrate on the conventions of writing as we proceed.

    We must edit, proofread and revise what we have written so that the end product can then be published in the appropriate form.
