New Brunswick Aboriginal Workplace Essential Skills Curriculum: Course 9 (2010)

Writing Basics

This document is part of the curriculum developed through the New Brunswick Aboriginal Workplace Essential Skills (NBAWES) project to help Aboriginal adults improve their literacy skills and their employability.

The goal of this curriculum unit is to give learners an opportunity to strengthen their writing skills by reviewing the basic rules of the English language. Participants are expected to work with reference materials like a dictionary or an encyclopedia; develop an understanding of syntax; discover the basics of punctuation; and explore storytelling, both verbal and written.

Specific lesson plans deal with taking notes; vocabulary, including the Greek and Latin roots of many English words; and the stages of writing, from selecting a topic to producing the final copy.

The unit is part of a curriculum designed to be presented over 34 weeks.
