Prewriting Tool for Students

Using the Prewriting Tool

Prewriting is a very important step in writing any essay or report. From your assignment page you can use our prewriting tool to help start and organize your essay. You can even work on your prewriting after you have started your essay. The prewriting content will even be automatically copy and pasted into your writing space.


Once you are in your assignment page, you find and use the prewriting tool by following these steps:


  1. Click “Start Prewriting” located in the header, above the prompt text and below.
