Guidelines for Composing

Introduction

The following introduction explains the basics of how to use the Guidelines for Composing. If you haven’t used the Guidelines before, you should begin with this video and then select one of the three following playlists based on your needs.

Self Timed Videos

The following playlist contains a series of videos with the Guidelines for Composing designed for writers who want to time themselves. Each video contains a short tone to indicate where you should pause.

Classroom Use: 40 Minute Version

The following playlist contains a short version of the Guidelines for Composing meant to take approximately 40 minutes. Each video is timed out with a silent writing time so that the whole playlist takes 40 minutes to complete. You can, of course, skip to the next video if you have less time or pause if you wish to write for longer.

Classroom Use: 60 Minute Version

The following playlist contains a longer version of the Guidelines for Composing meant to take approximately 60 minutes. This playlist has two branching options: If students need to discover topics, stay in sequence and play the entire playlist; if students already have topics, then play videos 1 & 2 (Tracks 19-20), then advance to video 7 (Track 25) and continue from there. Each video is timed out with a silent writing time so that the whole playlist takes 60 minutes to complete. You can, of course, skip to the next video if you have less time or pause if you wish to write for longer.
