Writing - Term Overview

Home | Blog | Writing - Term Overview

Writing is the production of text and encompasses both the set in which students learn to produce texts according to content and form with different communicative goals, as well as the required writing action.

Writing in the sense of couples focuses on the text content: Where do I want to overwrite? How do I express a particular thought? How do I build my report? How do I entice the reader to continue reading?

The writing procedure for handwriting, typography and literature that you need for this focuses on the visual form: how do I produce an even and clearly legible writing? How do I visualize the structure of the text? How do I design headings, lists and additional texts? How can I support the content and how do I guide it through the text?

From Scripture To Writing focuses on teaching the act of writing in relation to the person and the task he has to perform.

How do we write?

You can produce writing through two motor systems:

  • Using oral control: orally through speech recognition. The computer recognizes sounds and converts them into written text using software.
  • Using manual control: manually. You do that:
    • With handwriting: by forming letters with a pen, for example;
    • With lettering: by pressing or tapping keys.

If you work with speech recognition, you have to articulate well (or have it articulated) and you need accurate and well-functioning software.

Speech recognition can be useful in situations where you are alone, for example if you want to control the computer in your car or devices in your house through voice commands. You can also dictate a text.

Speech recognition is a form of 'working out loud' that is unsuitable in social spaces such as a train compartment, a shared work room, a flex desk, a library, study room or classroom. That is why handwriting education focuses (for the time being only) on the manual skills of handwriting and typography.

Whatever you write by hand, you can choose from three essentially different ways, namely the domains:

  • Handwriting.
  • Typography.
  • Literature.

If you want to be able to guide your students, knowledge and skills in the three domains are a prerequisite.

1. Handwriting

Your handwriting is the everyday writing you use when, for example, you take notes, make a mind map or write a to-do list or shopping note for yourself.

2. Typography

Typography is used for digital communication (you send an app), when you create a PowerPoint and prepare a report or report.

3. Literature

Literature is done for fun or if you want to draw attention to something, for example on offers in shops, on the specialty of the day in the catering industry, on slogans or on banners.
