Writing: mini things

This lesson plan for teachers of older teenage and adult students level B1 is about writing. Students will develop editing and accuracy.


Sometimes when we ask students to write a composition they spend very little time at the important editing stage. In this lesson students will do a couple of ‘short writing’ activities with the focus on editing and accuracy.
