Its a cool idea to make Essay Plans – especially if you have lots of work to complete. The Essay plan may be enough for some topics.
Brochure or Web pages are useful and can be made be made by sharing workloads – a whole class can make a resource for a large topic quite quickly and share the information for example.
(wordpress can be online and so can blogger! as long as the info conforms to the usual codes of practice)
Make a few blogs – one on the main topic, one for posting and collecting blog reads, one for posting tweets, one to showcase them…create a twitter with lists (tweet caster?) and a facebook to ‘like’ stuff…
Check the tweets, post relevant info, check blog reads, websites and add their blogs to your blog read blog…add posts and pages of info on the main blog…
Hey presto, a comprehensive collection of info!!
Or just use Pearltrees and Pinterest – or add them to your main blog
Simple with WordPress and their app!!
If they aren’t and you have to complete retakes, or another year…a quote from Bushcraft telly might help
“A well practised routine (camping, survival, even essay planning) provides all the speed you need”
Maybe time to think, recall, analyse, evaluate and write in the time allocated is the most important skill.
