A while back I redeveloped the writing frame we use to teach people how to write their report for the first part of our course.
If you want a better copy of this to print out, there is a PDF version you can download here.
I contextualised the writing frame above to the content that we teach in the first part of the course. But you can adapt this idea to your own context.
My students need to write a 1500 word report. This means that the writing frame is complicated. It’s very possible to create much simpler writing frames for much less demanding tasks.
An interesting aside (at least for me) is that this handout condenses a one semester course that I use to teach at the University of Auckland.
