The Writing Process

The Writing Process is usually considered to be the domain of the English classroom, but it should actually be taught and used in all classroom if teachers expect students to become competent in expressing themselves.  The stages of the Writing Process are Pre-Writing, Drafting, Revising, Editing and Publishing, and students should be expected to internalize that process so that it becomes a natural process they use when they write.
