No One Ever Said Teaching Composition Would Be Easy

I often hear myself telling my students that every individual has a writing style, just like everyone has a fashion style that is all there own. My students tell me they have trouble with transmitting their thoughts from between their ears to paper. What is the key to effective writing? Planning! In or world, this means outlines for papers, and rough drafts for other forms of correspondence.


A good outline helps the writer to plan a paper from topic,concept, major points as well as total length. It should be viewed as a roadmap.Writing a difficult letter? Think about the key points it should stress, and in what order? All effective writing features, short, direct, to the point sentences – less is more!
