Конспект урока «Writing for» по английскому языку для 7 класса

Writing for the 7th form.

Introduction: I'm sure that writing skills are necessary for the students of the 7 form students, as it can help to improve their ability to express their thoughts, feelings and intentions in English. Writing can help them to increase their vocabulary and teach them to use it in their oral and written speech.

The aim is to develop in learners the ability to write effectively in English for a range of useful purposes.

It focuses on two central areas:

    • the organizational conventions of particular text-types (what the 'product' is like)

    • the skills a writer needs to approach and see through particular writing tasks (what is involved in the writing 'process')

It's very important to show students what we know about how people write and how texts are structured and encourage them to become better writers.

Students will deal with different text-types and while studying text samples students will see what we understand by 'good' writing.

The purposes are:

  1. to study developing handwriting and punctuation skills.

  2. to show various aspects of writing process (planning, drafting, editing etc.)

  3. to demonstrate particular types of writing ( fiction, poetry, non-fiction, letters etc.), point out and discuss the particular characteristics and features of each text during class discussions

  4. to encourage students to learn from those samples and base their own writing on them

The activities:

The activities have to support the development of essential writing skills and also focus on the technical side of writing. ( especially developing punctuation skills) they also have to teach students various sides of the writing process, such as planning, drafting, editing etc.

To gain maximum benefit from studying writing I have tried to find texts which could be interesting to read and discuss while studying different topics .

Working with the texts:

a)Introducing and tackling the texts

  • study key aspects of the text

  • discuss them together

  • ensure students have a good grasp of literal meaning of the text and any vocabulary they may not have met before

  • study particular characteristics and features of the type of text

b) Writing a plan and some writing based on the text.

  • It consists of writing a rough draft and then refining it, before writing and finishing text

  • Handwriting or spelling are not very important at this point

  • At this stage students should be encouraged to make changes to the text to make it more interesting, accurate or exciting, by crossing out unwanted words or sentences around, adding things or moving words or sentences around.

c) A final check

  • Communicative quality

  • Logical organization

  • Layout and presentation

  • Grammar

  • Vocabulary

  • Handwriting, punctuation and spelling

Texts should be arranged according to the contents of the student book and student's needs. Writing will take place once a week .
