Relief Teaching Writing Lessons – Keep them Writing

Relief Teaching Writing Lessons have lots of challenges

One of the biggest challenges of relief teaching writing lessons is to make them relevant.

Relief Teaching Writing Lessons are often seen as passive. Passive learning activities often lack relevance to students.

These strategies will keep your writing lessons active and engaging.

You start on a winner when using relief teaching writing lessons because all students recognise that writing is one of the skills they need for future sucess.

Most students, however, will not fall for the old trick of giving them busy work. That is, work that is designed to keep the quiet without the goal of learning.​

Relief teaching writing lessons often fall into this category.​
