    • FAP can be used to organize the information that you will see in the prompts.
    • FAP is found in the writing situation and writing directions of the prompts.
  • FAP is an acronym that helps you identify what you are being asked to do.

F is for FORM

  • WHAT are you writing?
  • Possible FORMS include; email, letter, essay, article, or story.

A is for AUDIENCE

    • parents
    • friend

    • teacher
    • author
    • neighbor

  • Sometimes you might be writing to a “general audience”. This means that your writing is not for anyone specific such as in the case of an essay or short story.

P is for PURPOSE
