Associative Writing
Associative writing, also called free writing, requires that the student write his thoughts as fast as they come to mind with no attention to sentence structure or punctuation. The technique may be particularly helpful when a student is troubled or suffering from writersĄŻ block. Although I like to teach students how and when to use associative writing, I prefer that they do it outside of class and not as an English assignment.
Clarifying Thoughts or Positions
For these topics, students are asked to write anything they want to about the topics. If they stray from the topic, thatĄŻs okay.
