Stage 1: Pre-writing

Before you sit down to write something, you need to figure out what you are going to write about. Most of us start with a topic, and then decide what we have to say about this topic. For an essay, you might generate a “working thesis” or a main idea that you would like to explore, and then start collecting information and ideas that relate to that idea.

Ways to generate ideas:

  • determine who, what, where, when, why, and how

  • determine what you already know and what you still need to learn about your topic

  • do some research to learn more information


Using colored sticky notes, note cards, or highlighters can help keep you organized!

Use a different color for each topic and note important information as you read.

Ways to plan your writing:
