Sharing Your Own Experience in an Informal Document
Have you ever sat down to write a document and thought, where do I even begin? Sitting and staring at a blank page while trying to develop ideas can be frustrating. Trying to write an essay, a memo, a professional email, or any other document in one sitting can be difficult and often leads to writer’s block. Prewriting is an easy step to avoid frustration and writer’s block. Prewriting is an excellent way to consider what you already know about a topic, begin generating ideas, and plan to write.
Prepare: Complete the assigned Unit 3 Reading and Learning Activities.
Preview the Unit 4 Assignment details and generate possible topic ideas for your Unit 4 Assignment.
Post: Post a discussion that identifies at least one to two possible topics for your blog post. Explain to the class why you chose these possible topic ideas and what experience you have with them. Identify possible audiences and how the information you share will help your audience. Tell the class which topic you think you might select and why.
Post a prewriting activity for one of your identified topics. You might post a short paragraph of freewriting, for example.
Include an open-ended question about any issue your initial post raises which your classmates can help you with.
