Reinventing Prewriting: Graphic Organizers, Mind Mapping, and More
Prewriting and brainstorming are important when students are writing together or
online. Not planning would be like a coach going into a game without some plays.
Prewriting such as focused free writing, mind mapping, brainstorming, and listing and
outlining can help students. There are tools online that make prewriting easier and let
students collaboratively plan together before they write.
