Before students begin writing on a topic, focusing or narrowing down the reasons for choosing their topics is key to a successful writing. With this prewriting tool, students answer questions about their topics that are designed to ensure a laser focus on the chosen topics. Questions such as "Why did you choose this topic?" and "Why will your audience be interested in this topic?" are just a couple of examples students are asked. This tool will get students started on the right track. After all, we know what kind of writing results when students haven't focused their topics!
