Teaching Tip: Improving Writing

Here are some things you can do to improve your students' writing skills.
  • Encourage your students to use a dictionary and thesaurus when writing. Have these available for students to use.
  • Point out students' errors in written work. Have your students make the corrections themselves, providing any guidance needed.
  • Correct errors in students' spoken language. Students tend to write the way they talk.
  • Have students be watchful for errors in your written work. Make the corrections with the students.
  • Provide as many opportunities as possible for students to write.Practice does make perfect.
