If you are new to teaching composition, or if you want to focus on the writing process, these lectures walk you through each stage using best practices for teaching students how to write. You can download them and adapt them to your own style. Introduce students to the writing process. Then move to prewriting, and when you get to the list of prewriting options (like brainstorming, clustering, free writing, asking questions and using the five senses), explain each and give time in class for students to try them out for the paper they are writing at the time. When you give the lecture on thesis statements, stop on the slide with the three fundamental questions and have students answer them and construct thesis statements. Then have students write on the board or read the statements and critique each other’s.
