Pass it on writing

Pass it on writing is used to share ideas and writing techniques and to scaffold learners to write independently.

Each group brainstorms their ideas on a topic and jots them down. When they are told to start writing, each student begins writing independently on a separate piece of paper. When the teacher says "Pass it on", students pass their writing to the next person. They read what has been passed on to them and continue writing on their neighbour's paper until the next "pass it on". At the end, the group decides on the best text to share with the class.
