18 Things Highly Creative People Do Differently | Web 2.0 for Education | Scoop.it
'Inspiration and ideas often arise seemingly out of nowhere and then fail to show up when we most need them, and creative thinking requires complex cognition yet is completely distinct from the thinking process.'

Via Beth Dichter
Lee Hall's insight:

Give you and your students time to be creative.

David Baker's curator insight, March 16, 2014 11:06 AM

The traits and habits of creative people are things we all do sometimes. How dynamic might learning be if I purposefully built these ideas into my teaching and made it a part of my students routines?

I selected this article from Curatti written by Alice Elliott because she explains the importance of carefully editing your blog posts.

 

Improve your writing with quality content.

 

How to Effectively Edit Your Articles

 

It's tempting to hit the publish button right away after writing a blog post. I agree that in order to make the best of it you need to carefully look your copy over first.

 

Elliott explains the process of how to edit your articles and improve your writing at the same time.

 

Here's what caught my attention:

 

  • It's important to first do planning and research before the writing begins. Use an outline of the structure with a beginning, middle, and end.

 

  • After writing a post give yourself some time to process it. Save the editing process after you have completed your article.

 

  • Read your completed work out loud to yourself. Notice the flow of the piece, and whether there were any mistakes you may have missed.
