Prewriting for Classroom Reports
To write a good report, you need to choose a topic that interests you and spend some time researching facts about it. These prewriting activities will prepare you to write a first draft.
Prewriting to Choose a Topic
Your first prewriting step is to choose a topic for your report. Make sure the topic is something you want to learn more about.
Explore writing topics.
In this unit, you will be writing a report about a specific landform. Explore the list of landforms below. Choose the three landforms that you find most interesting.
The guidelines in this unit focus on writing a report about a landform, but students can follow the same guidelines to write a report about any topic—whether person, place, thing, or event. Feel free to adapt the unit to the topics of your curriculum.
