Abstract
With the increasing emphasis on structured, academic essays in the English classroom, informal writing has slowly been removed. This project will focus on the importance of informal writing and how activities such as freewriting, focused freewriting, and reader-response writing can be implemented as a means to engage students in the writing process. The thesis will also discuss the ways in which these informal writing activities can later emerge into formal, structured essays.
