THINK LITERACY: Cross-Curricular Approaches, Grades 7-12

Generating Ideas: Rapid Writing

Introduction to Marketing, Grade 11 (BMI3C): Marketing Opportunities (Key Competencies)

Read the Student/Teacher Resource, Tips for Rapid Writing. Have paper and pen or computer ready.

Ask for clarification if required.

What teachers do

Before

  • Explain that the purpose of rapid writing is to allow students to record what they know about the topic without worrying about repetition, spelling, grammar, or any other error.

  • Give directions for rapid writing. See Student/Teacher Resource, Tips for Rapid Writing.

What students do

In pairs, explain the thinking behind the categories used.

One student from each group reads the paragraph to the class.

At the starting signal, write or type as quickly as possible without stopping or making any corrections.

Count and record the number of words. Discuss each career list by reading aloud parts of what they have written.

During

  • Review directions. See Student/Teacher Resource, Tips for Rapid Writing.

  • Read and record the topic on the board from Teacher Resource, Rapid Writing Exercise.

  • Give the signal to begin.

  • Time the students (3 to 7 minutes).

  • Give the signal for students to stop writing. (You may want to give them a one-minute warning.)

After

  • Debrief.

  • Ask students to count the number of words they have written.

  • Ask who has at least “x” words, until only one or two hands remain up.

  • Discuss each career list based on what the students have written.

  • Encourage students who don’t usually participate.

  • Focus the students’ attention on how their rapid writing can be the starting point for more polished pieces.

  • Alternatively, as a follow-up direct students to begin classifying and organizing their ideas.

  • Alternatively, organize students into small groups to share their rapid writing and to compose a short collaborative paragraph on the topic.
