ESOL Wt/E3.1a

Recognise the process of planning and drafting when writing certain types of text (i) Plan, understanding that the choice of how to organise writing depends on the purpose, genre, audience and intended outcome Example: Plan and draft the type of texts learners want to write, e.g. letters, narratives, simple instructions, short reports, posts on social networking sites, recipes, articles, poems, messages, course work. (ii) Show awareness that there are different ways of planning (e.g. as a spider diagram, listing, making notes), but all involve getting, selecting and ordering ideas, and deciding which process works best for different learners (iii) Show awareness that not all types of writing need formal planning or need to go through several drafts, but others do, e.g. important letters, college assignments (iv) Know that generating ideas for writing, and making decisions about what and how much to include, is part of the planning process and can be done with other people (v) Use different formats and features of layout for different text types, e.g. paragraphing, listing, columns, line breaks, use of headings, numbering, bullet points, graphics (vi) Identify appropriate register for task and audience, showing awareness of the main differences between spoken and written English (vii) Integrate planning and drafting (viii) Produce final legible version of text, word processed or handwritten, developing awareness of when material is ready for presentation
