brainstorm activity

Now that we are introduced to the fourth essay, let’s brainstorm some ideas. Brainstorming is part of the prewriting process, where we gather ideas to see how they can be used in the development of your essay. All writing includes some form of brainstorming. One way to brainstorm is to list your ideas without censoring yourself. Whatever comes to mind, jot it down and later you can throw out what you don’t need. In the end, you’ll end up with lots of material to build your essay.
