Getting thoughts down quickly under pressure and still be able to use the correct mechanics of writing is a muscle that needs building in our home.
We're switching the components we use for English (language arts) around a bit next year - I might write more on that in another post - as I'm wanting to create the time for the children to practice various styles of writing under time pressure more often.
I like how Lori outlined thoughts she's collected and employed for her students to be able to work on timed essay writing - it's nice to find a post where someone has detailed out many of the thoughts I was entertaining, and more besides... and laid them out more succinctly than I ever could. :D

I'm posting this note here, more for myself than anything.... makes it easy for me to find later, but thought Lori's post may benefit others too.
