Tips for Planning Writing!

Mind mapping
Is a simple and effective way to visually represent information helping to link ideas. Take a look at this video of Tony Buzan talking about the power of mind mapping. 

Make a plan
It is especially crucial for dyslexics to formulate the order of their thoughts before they start an essay. Though, the style and depth of your plan is up to you.

Teacher Tip: This website has some great graphic organisers to help children plan their writing.

Use headings
This helps organise your thoughts as well as breaking down the work into less intimidating chunks. It is also a useful way to ensure you are answering all elements of the question.
