THINK LITERACY: Cross-Curricular Approaches, Grades 7-12
Tips for Rapid Writing
Write as fast as you can.
No corrections or erasing allowed.
Write until your teacher says STOP – do not stop before!
Don’t lift your pen/pencil from the paper or remove your hands from the computer.
If you get stuck, jumpstart your brain by writing the topic title and extending it to a sentence.
When your teacher says, ‘STOP!’ count and record the number of words you have written.
Be prepared to discuss your topic; use the writing you have done to start you off.
