The case against “good” and “bad” - Marlee Neel

The case against “good” and “bad” - Marlee Neel | Writing as a Process | Scoop.it
Don’t take the easy route! Instead, use this little trick to improve your writing -- let go of the words “good” and “bad,” and push yourself to illustrate, elucidate and illuminate your world with language.
Molly Spessert's insight:

Demand colorful writing and eradicate the words "good" and "bad" from writing vocabulary!

A Sample Philosophy Paper

How to write a philosophy paper taught with a prezi. The sample philosophy paper is annotated, and each aspect of the paper is explained so it can be easily reproduced in creating your own paper. 

Molly Spessert's insight:

A professor's prezi that was initially created as a quick sample paper for students in his philosphy class has been edited and improved as other teachers and students have found his methods and process useful. The Prezi walks through how to write a solid philosophy paper. Rather than a slideshow of images, each prezi slide dives deeper into the sample paper with detailed comments that include suggestions on content and format. The professor reminds students that the introduction needs to be a roadmap for the essay, and demonstrates effective incorporation of background information for the thesis without drenching the reader in too many unnecessary facts. This model is wonderful not only because it is a good sample paper, but because of the detailed comments that walk you through the writing process.

By Calvin Hennick In every writing class I teach, I ask my students to complete in-class writing exercises. Some find them helpful, and others don't, but there's a reason I ...
Molly Spessert's insight:

Try 15 minutes of in class writing to disrupt the student's writing process. Tips: Respond to promts, write something terrible, set a timer, write in longhand - it slows the thought process down and allows first drafts to be first drafts.

Two Distraction-Free Writing Platforms for Teachers and Students ~ Educational Technology and Mobile Learning

Two Distraction-Free Writing Platforms for Teachers and Students ~ Educational Technology and Mobile Learning | Writing as a Process | Scoop.it
Molly Spessert's insight:

Great education tools to use for the writing process! My favorite part is the fact that they provide students with a distraction free environment. The best aspect of the tool is the "Hemingway Mode", when activated you are not allowed to edit until you finish all that you write. This is perfect for stream of consciousness writing and forces students to think just about writing and conveying their thoughts rather than be concerned about steps in the writing process that are further down the line. Both "Draft" and "Scrawler" appear easy to use and include some features similar to google docs.

Student-Led Writing: How & Why I Let Students Lead The Writing Process (RT @LearnPal: Student-Led Writing: How I Let Students Lead The Writing Process http://t.co/s0lpl34eEv via @teachthought)...
Molly Spessert's insight:

The basis for this teacher's new method on student led writing is from resources that discuss the popular new method of flipping the classroom. Prior to the unit her students expected to dislike GOthic and Romantic literature, but to their surprise they not only loved it, but learned from the unit and everyone turned in an essay in teh correct format. The 7 steps to Student-Led Writing are: 1. Create Questions 2. Keep Questions Alive 3. Marshall Evidence 4. Write in Class 5. Revise a Draft 6. Submit a Clean Draft 7. Create a Rubric. I love the idea of having students create their own rubric, this makes it more attainable and valubale to them since they will be following their own guidelines!
