The language skill of writing can be very overwhelming for low level students. To help our low level students become motivated to write and be successful in their writing endeavours, we need to select writing tasks that are both engaging and achievable. Criteria for writing tasks that are effective for low level students include: clear, simple, scaffolded, structured and controlled. In this session, we will introduce you to a wide range of writing activities to use with your low level students that fulfill these criteria.
