Transactional Writing - Planner

This is a resource students can use to plan a piece of transactional writing.

It focuses on 3 things:

  • Form, Audience and Purpose
    - In this section, the students have to think about how each of these will be affected according to the question (e.g. if the audience is their peers, it can be written fairly informally etc.)

  • Points I will make
    - In this section, the students have to think about their main points. This can be done in note form or could even plan out each paragraph

  • Errors I will avoid
    - This is an opportunity for students to self-assess their previous work to see what errors they need to avoid (e.g. specific SPaG mistakes)

This can be applied to any non-fiction writing question (the box at the top is for the students to write whatever question is given to them)
