Writing academically at the best of times requires, concentration, language command and control. Add on top of this multiple graphs that learners need to compare and dealing with numeracy in a foreign language, many learners find themselves dazed and confused. This can also lead to looking for a short cut or a writing frame that can be memorized for the exam.
However by doing this learners can limit their written flexibility. They try to control the graph instead of letting the graph lead them to create an organized and coherent piece of writing. With a few simple steps learners can methodically approach the graphs in question and develop a writing plan.
