-Final Draft Determine your Audience and Purpose
Explore your topic and make a plan to approach it Pre-writing Techniques - how you organize you ideas when you prepare to write.
-Talk Writing
-Journal Writing Talk Writing - talk aloud about your topic to a friend or even yourself. The Key is to talk about what you plan on writing to get ideas out. Brainstorming - thinking of as many ideas as possible. List everything that comes to your mind. Don't worry about it sounding good or if something is a bad idea. Stay at home while raising children Instill a love of education in my future children Never stop learning Eventually get a PhD work Make kids a priority Have a good relationship family My future CLUSTERING/MAPPING Use the skills I have learned in as many ways as possible Learn to love whatever work I am doing education Raise healthy, happy children Freewriting- writing all of your ideas on paper for a set period of time. Forget about grammar and spelling. The point is to get all of your ideas on paper without restricting yourself. Clustering/Mapping - Putting ideas into a diagram. Narrow a broad subject down. Start with topic in the center, and branch out from there with related ideas. Journal Writing- keeping a notebook in which you pour out your heart about everything. Example of Brainstorming:
Topic: What would I do with one million dollars?
Travel - Europe, Asia, S. America
Buy a house
Share - give a scholarship, donated to charities.
Buy a lot of books
Invest/Save and let the interest grow Your turn: Freewrite about your favorite place to visit. Type a one page paper about what you like to do there, why is it your favorite place. Think of as much as you can about this favorite place. Just get all of your ideas down. It doesn't have to make sense. A stage of the writing process during which a writer organizes information and ideas into sentences and paragraphs. -Plan and outline your paper to determine the order in which you will discuss things. After getting ideas about your topic and making a plan, it is time to start writing. While writing your rough draft, remember these tips:
1. Don't worry about writing the "perfect paper" for the first time.
2. The goal is to develop the ideas you listed in the outline.
3. Don't focus on spelling and grammar, you can check this later in the writing process. After you receive feedback from your peers or instructor, you may decide to add or delete sentences, reorganize the sequence, or change the paragraphs.
Revision may also include narrowing the focus of your writing, adding supporting details, changing the tone or style, or even writing a completely new piece a different focus and for a different audience. Revision is NOT about correcting grammar or spelling, it's about adding details to make your ideas more clear! Focus on correcting spelling and grammar. Look for capitalization and punctuation mistakes. Revising tips:
*Take a break from your draft before attempting to revise.
*Read your draft out loud and listen to your words: how do they sound to you?
*If you were a reader who didn't know much about the topic, would your paper make sense? The last step is turning in the final draft. Did you pay attention to your instructor's comments?
Did you make all of your corrections? Questions?? Types of Essays
1. Narration- Narration, in literature, is the telling of the story through one or more viewpoints. Different viewpoints include: First person: uses first person pronouns "I", "me", "myself"; Third person: uses pronouns "he", "she", "they," "them", etc. without directly referring to the narrator. Third person omnicient means the narrator, or author, can "get in the heads" of all characters and narrate what is happening at all times in the story rather than having one first person narrator telling about only what happens to him or herself.
