GED Help Writing

Students who have a good understanding of sentence structure, organization, usage and mechanics will most likely do well on the GED Language Arts test. I would recommend that students whom you are teaching/tutoring/mentoring write in a journal every day. This would be an excellent tool for you to start your "GED Writing Discussion". Start simple with sentences, evolving to paragraphs, and finally the GED essay itself.

I have found that most students do not write on a regular basis, and therefore the GED Language Arts Writing test is challenging.

Perhaps you want to give your students a writing prompt (How did the weekend weather affect your planned activites?)

Writing is great fun and once your students learn the process they will be one step closer to their GED!
