More Praise For Writing Practice

Students in all my classes are required to do one or another form of daily writing practice. Students in Pre-Composition, are asked to write 10 minutes a day and to answer five questions about their writing at the end of each week. The following is one student’s reflection after only two week’s writing practice and the reason writing practice is the only non-negotiable item on any syllabus.

What did I discover about my writing or myself? This week I’ve discovered that I actually do have more to write about than I thought. I have more than doubled the number of words in my free writing that I started off with last week. My first free writing had 99 words, this week my highest number of words is 249. I know that in just a few days I have improved my ability to write. – JC
