Why do people write?

I decided to do a conceptual writing lesson with my students. I handed out laminated pictures and they needed to categorize them around the room.

People write in order to plan and organize. Here I had pictures of jars with labels, an agenda, a shopping list, a to-do list, a menu, a map and an airline boarding pass.

People write in order to communicate. Here I included things like: signs, warnings, letters, e-mails and greeting cards.

And people write for fun: crossword puzzles, journals and comic strips.
