Get your students to write and ESL writing lessonsthink!

Writing and thinking are inseparable skills.

Finding level-appropriate classroom materials that build composition and critical thinking capacity can be a challenge.

This ebook is part of the solution.

With 20 ready-to-go skills-building lessons, this resource pack helps teachers spend less time on prep and more time supporting student achievement.

20 Lessons in Two Sections

1: LEARN TO WRITE

Activities to improve clarity, organisation and style. Many lessons are based on principles established in the 6+1 writing traits. For example:

  • Unit 3 contains video links which work well as writing prompts for exercises that improve text organisation.
  • Unit 5 is about perfecting the complex sentence. It’s a vital writing tool that improves paragraph cohesion and sentence variety.

2: WRITE TO LEARN

Students learn and apply a few critical thinking tools – the language of arguments and ideas – in their writing. For example:

  • Unit 11 shows students how to articulate a crystal clear argument based on a claim and premises.
  • Unit 14 builds on previous work and asks students to apply critical thinking in a real world case: analyze the argument in a TV advertisement.
