Description

Make Writing Lively, Surprising, and Social

Many students view writing work as just that: work, boring drudgery. Worse, as they master the structural requirements of academic writing, their prose can get more formulaic and stale! Conversational Writing is the antidote! This unique book complements the writing teacher’s toolbox and enhances students’ facility, joy, and creativity with writing.

It turns writing into a conversation, an interactive and dynamic activity! Students get an original, imaginative situation and several prompts. They respond to one prompt and pass the paper. The result is a work with multiple authors and multiple ideas. The perfect fluency writing activity or use it as a prewriting for a longer essay or story! Nicholas Gordon has put his long experience as an outreach coordinator at the Georgetown CIED program and Director of the English Language Program at The University of Kyiv-Mohyla Academy into this mix of wacky, intriguing, engaging, and functional writing prompts.

Inside find prompts about:

  • funny headlines
  • a murder investigation
  • TOEFL essay-like prompts
  • personal getting-to-know-you type prompts
  • practice with grammar forms!

Writing work shouldn’t be work!
