    Quick Write Notes

    1.    Create a graphic organizer with topic

    Ex: web cluster, outline form, bullet notes, four square, T-chart, Venn Diagram, etc…


    2.    Start writing “rough” draft

    – don’t lift pencil (lose train of thought)

         - don’t stop and think (writer’s block)

         - about 5-15 minutes

         - write whatever comes to mind until you can get back on track.


    3.    Revise and Edit your writing- more than once

    - make sure writing is relevant to the topic

    - check mechanics- spelling, grammar, punctuation, DOL


           4.  Final draft- rewrite more than once and then go to completed essay.  Typed.
