I am home schooling (only for English) my 12 year old son in Greece and would like some clarification on wtriting to inform.
There is much information on the web that states what should be included in writing to inform. For instance: It is factual,unbiased, impersonal, focuses on WHO, WHAT, WHERE AND WHEN. Also may include some diagram, pictures or bullet points (bbc bitesize).
Other sources emphasise the 5 w's. So we are missing the WHY from the above source. However bbc goes on the say that when we include the WHY this is classed as explaining, is written in the present tense but focuses on WHY.
So do I tell my son to include WHY in the basics of writing to inform or should I leave it as an ingredient used for writing to explain...?
Also, are there any flashcards or info sheets that would help my son to follow a set or rules when writing in difference styles. He seems to have issues with prewritng.
Thanks for your time.
