In order to aid students with their writing skills, the authors conducted a case study where middle level students were asked to use drawing as a pre-writing tool. The data analysis of this study concluded the students made improvements in their use of vocabulary, use of description, use of punctuation, use of sentence structure, use of a thesis, and flow. This paper shares a rationale for these findings and provides recommendations for teachers to implement art as a pre-writing tool for students.
