Composition Writing

In this lesson, we will be learning about composition writing. A lot of this content is similar in P4, P5, P6 classes as well, as there are no different techniques of writing a composition. There are always the same few things you need to know. So, here we will be focusing on introductions and endings of a composition. So, let’s begin with the composition introductions.

 

Composition - Introductions

A story is like a journey and you are taking the reader on a journey through your composition. So, you should always keep the following points in mind while writing a composition:

  1. Make the experience GREAT for THEM
  2. Please, don’t try too hard to show off!
  3. Most importantly, enjoy yourself

Practice Questions

Question 1:

Your family goes to an expensive restaurant for a special dinner. What is the BEST introduction you could receive?

  1. All the staff stare at you like you are some sort of alien :O
  2. There is nobody around, and you stand around awkwardly.
  3. The restaurant manager spends 20 minutes talking to all of you about the amazing design of the restaurant.
  4. The staff welcome you warmly, serve some drinks and light snacks while you browse the menu, and make sure you are comfortable.

 

Answer:

This is an easy one here. The correct answer to this question is option (4). But let’s discuss option (3) as well. You and your family are there at the restaurant to eat food. However, the focus here is on the manager or the restaurant instead of you, the customer. This is a good example to show that when you write a story, you should focus on making it a good experience for your reader.

 

Question 2:

If YOU were reading a story, how would a good introduction feel to YOU?

  1. There are so many big words and it looks impressive, but... I don’t understand most of them.
  2. The words are not fancy, but they are clear and easy to understand. I feel absorbed into the story.
  3. The introduction looks “creative” but honestly it’s quite confusing and I have no idea what’s going on.

 

Answer:

The correct answer to this question is option (2). If you write basic or normal words in your composition and explain it well, it makes the reader stick to the composition. You would not like to read something which is confusing, or something that looks impressive but which you are unable to understand.


 

Composition - Endings

Endings are also an important part of a great story. Your reader will be disappointed if the story doesn’t end well. End the journey well, and not like you wrote a story on zombie apocalypse which ended all of a sudden when you found a cure and everybody lived happily ever after.
 

Practice Questions

Question 3:

How can you prevent a situation where you run out of time to finish your story?

 

  1. Draw a complex chart and colour-code it to keep track of your story.
  2. Whatever happens, just quickly scribble “Suddenly I woke up, it was all just a dream.”
  3. Time yourself during a practice, then adjust how much you write based on that.

 

Answer:

The correct answer to this question is option (3). It is important for you to check the time you take to write a composition during practice. Ideally, you should write a composition of 3-4 pages.
