“If at first the idea is not absurd, then there is no hope for it.” – Albert Einstein
Pre-writing is a critical first piece of the writing process.
- It allows students to grapple with the prompt and play with ideas.
- It creates an opportunity for students to determine a purpose, form and audience for their essay.
- It provides students with substantive talking points to share with peers and the teacher.
- Research shows that prewriting and brainstorming activities help combat “blank-page syndrome”, otherwise known as writer’s block.
