Categories: Writing and Assessment
I found this website on my travels tonight through the del.icio.us links of Ewan McIntosh. The basic premise is to write 100 words (exactly) per day for a whole month. I have noticed Advanced Higher really toiling with word counts on essays lately, as well as remembering my own University experience, where I was terrible at keeping to the limit. I wonder if something like this a little further down the school would encourage a little more discipline when writing? It's even something that could be done in-house and modified by departments, and I'll certainly be passing the link to the English department. Starting Atmosphere with Higher tomorrow, I'll post from school about this, along with the past paper mentioned a few posts back.
