This is a different writing lesson. It does not teach how to write a paragraph. Instead, this ESL writing lesson teaches English students a framework to analyze an idea.
I have used this framework in an advanced English conversation class. Now I am taking the same learning model and using it in a composition class.
ESL Writing Activity: Group Intelligence
The writing activity has four parts.
- Make a small group with 2 or three people.
- Choose a topic.
- Discuss the questions and answers together. Help each other find the answers.
- When the group has made answers for each question, each person writes their own assignment.
Analyze a Concept
Below is the framework which students follow when discussing answers and writing their compositions.
