1. BE SURE your writing scaffold is complete.  Remember, the more time you spend on the writing scaffold the easier creating a rough draft will be, and the faster you will generate a final paragraph.

2.  Log into MI Write/PEG Writing

3.  Choose your class

4.  Go to "practice" to find your writing prompt.

5.  Choose "begin writing."  Your mind map and writing scaffold are the Prewritng for this assignment. The AAI is also part of Prewriting.

6.  Turn off the timer.

7. Copy and paste your writing scaffold into the text box.

8. Revise your words and phrases into strong sentences.  Use the Paragraph/Sentence Parts Checklist.  The more effort you put into this step, the easier (and faster) your rough draft will come together.  Check off items as you go along.
