This includes a powerpoint with a general introduction to the writing process, along with a copy of notes for students to complete during instruction. Additionally, two versions of a quiz on the material is included, as well.
While the powerpoint does not go into great detail, it does introduce students to the steps of the writing process, its effectiveness, and its purpose within each stage. I, personally, use this at the very beginning of the year as an general introduction to my students before their first essay, and in so doing, I stress the importance of writing as a process. As I teach each essay, I refer back to the information in this powerpoint constantly to reiterate the importance of going through the entire process in order to produce a thorough, well-written piece of writing.
Overall, this serves as a foundational piece to begin teaching writing to students.
