A big writing assignment can be a stressful thing, especially during finals week! Where do you start? How do you organize? How do you know if what you wrote was any good? Brainstorming, outlining, drafting and revising are all elements of a successful paper. The Microsoft Office team created a OneNote notebook called “The Writing Process” to help students just like you with each of these skills.
Microsoft OneNote 2010 is a digital notebook—think of it as a central storage space for your school projects. You can use it to collect research, take notes in class, and organize outlines. Collaborating is simple with built-in sharing features, and it’s easy to find items in your notebooks using OneNote search.
This Writing Process notebook is a starting point for students with a writing assignment to complete. It includes:
– Strategies for prewriting
– Graphic organizers and tools
– Tips for voice and word choice
– Revising and editing strategies
– Links to other writing resources
You can use this notebook to store your own work by adding new pages and sections. You can author directly in OneNote, or copy and paste entire documents from Microsoft Word.
