This list is for students but with little adjustment could apply to any project or problem, and that’s why it’s taught in school now:

“What students should brainstorm before doing a project:

  • What major points will be covered?
  • What examples will be used to prove each point?
  • Are there any powerful anecdotes or stories that need to be told? Where?
  • How do the major points connect? How should they flow and be organized?
  • What is our plan of creating this product? Drafting? Polishing? Finishing?
  • What roles will we play in this task?
  • What do we already know about this subject?
  • What do we not know (and need to research) about this topic?

Brainstorming and mind mapping are a powerful ways to connect students and if they are writing together, prewriting activities still apply.”
