1 LING 402 - ACADEMIC DISCOURSE PRACTICES: A critical approach Week 5 Examining the Writing Process

2 Prevaricating Look at the cartoon In what ways does it reflect your personal experience of writing? What delays getting started?

3 Starting to write early Have you written at least one paragraph? If so, what was involved in the process? What use has it been? What have you learnt for the future?

4 Whats involved in the writing process? Work in six groups of 4 – 5 people In your groups, divide up the cards so you have roughly an equal number each. One by one take one of your cards and lead a discussion in your group on what you think it refers to, sharing your previous experiences of this aspect of the writing process. Once all the cards have been discussed, choose one card and lay it on your poster card. One by one add other cards, choosing where to situate each one, to make a visual representation of the writing process, showing how these different aspects of the writing process are related to one another. You can add extra cards of your own and /or add arrows (in pencil at first …) When you are happy with your representation, use blu-tak to stick your cards to the poster card and put in any necessary arrows with the pens provided.

5 Whats involved in the writing process? contd: Look at the other posters carefully, noting any similarities and differences.

6 Whats involved in the writing process? contd: Look at the other posters carefully, noting any similarities and differences. Discuss your poster once more in your original group and make any amendments you think necessary to your poster in light of what you learnt from other posters.
