Writing Activity Types

Students need practice taking a recorded idea or two, expanding the idea(s) into a drafted written piece which, after incorporating feedback from others and any other language revisions deemed appropriate, is edited for the mechanics of grammar and punctuation, and then published or recorded. This is the Writing Process and there are many Activity Types that involve the various stages of the Writing Process:
