Prewriting Activities

Prewriting helps students overcome writer's block and help students identify key words, meaning, and structure for their future writing. There are many activities that can be introduced such as free writing, mind mapping, brainstorming, and outlining. 

Prewriting also helps students:
  • Focus and clear distractions while opening their mind to ideas within the subject
  • Narrow and define topics for their paper
  • Develop a structure to their writing topics 
  • Provides a visual and verbal document for reaction, review, discussion, and/or further development  
  • Provide a context to further define the topic and identify gaps in information
