We are learning to write collaboratively. This means we are writing one piece of text, but each of us is responsible for writing different paragraphs, or for covering different topics.
We plan the text together, sharing our ideas and possible vocabulary that will suit this particular text.
We then write our part independently, making sure we include ideas from the planning session.
Once we have finished writing our part, we come together again to proofread and edit our draft. At this time we make decisions about the order in which we should organise the different parts of the text and if we need to add words or phrases to make sure our final written piece is cohesive- that it makes sense.
