1. Describe your planning process. How do you personally prepare for a writing assignment? Which points of the star do you consider when planning a writing assignment?
2. Choose one of the activities (pages 17 -27): brainstorming, listing, freewriting, questioning, or sketching to see how many ideas you can come up with in 5-10 minutes that relate to your topic. Post your discovery activity in your blog and a reflection on its effect on the development of your essay. (Visuals can be photographed and posted as pictures.)
