Skype classroom - Writing Project

‘WRITING,’ the word itself reminds me of the letters, characters, and scripts and of various other synonyms. It is such a complex and a multifaceted blend of skills altogether. However, indeed writing is a process and not a product. Hence, various steps are involved and followed in order to create a refined piece of writing.

Therefore, I planned for a global collaboration and a team teaching to help my students get more acquainted with this process. I am grateful to Christopher Tozier, an author of the book Olivia Brophie and the Pearl of Tagelus, for such a noteworthy collaboration.

My class had two informative and engaging sessions with Christopher, where they gained good insight about the process and the various other elements involved in writing. They even became more aware of what it means to be an author and the patience, thought process a writer goes through. Indeed, it is not an easy job to gather your ideas and sequencing your thoughts. Well, Chris and I have a good planning in this direction for the students. We are constantly giving the students the inputs to write better and to make it more interesting for the readers and themselves as well. We are going to work in this direction until each student is able to refine his or her own writing piece and is ready to publish their work.

As an educator, I can say now that my students have started enjoying the constructive feedback given to them and are progressively enjoying the writing process.
