Five Types of Writing

The Collins Writing Program is built around the Five Types of Writing. Through these five types the program delivers a unique, copyrighted approach to writing and thinking that is easy to manage and offers much more than the traditional writing process.

What Are the Five Types of Writing Used by the Collins Writing Program?

The Collins Writing Program distinguishes itself from others through its proprietary approach to writing. The Five Types of Writing offers five different ways to use writing, depending on the teacher’s goal, time available, and where students are in the learning process. It shows teachers how to guide their students through all five types of writing with practical, easy-to-use strategies and techniques that have shown to improve student writing.

The program especially emphasizes Type Three Writing where Focus Correction Areas are introduced and Type Four Writing where peer editing occurs. Type Four assignments provide students with opportunities to draft, edit, and receive meaningful feedback on their work−within manageable time limits.
