The Process of Writing : CODER
In your written work, it is advisable to follow the process outlined below. (We call it 'CODER' - Collect your ideas; Organise your ideas; make your first Draft; Edit your work; Revise your work.)
1. C - Collect your ideas
Working in groups, recall and jot down the opinion that the 'scientist' formed of his boss in A.5.
2. 0 - Organise your ideas
(a) Now work in pairs. Choose one or two opinions about the boss that you feel quite strongly about, or agree with.
(b) Also, note down the opinion that you prefer about the scientist.
3. D - make your first Draft
Write the description individually. You may refer to some of the words in the boxes in A.2. and A. 7.
Note : At this stage of your course, you should not worry about the language and tone of a formal description.
4. E -Edit your work
Now exchange your description with your partner, and suggest improvements in grammar, spelling, punctuation etc.
5. R - Revise your work
Rewrite your speech and check it carefully, before handing it to your teacher.
