Summary

Teachers, trainees and learning support assistants will find this lively and accessible book combines creativity with skills teaching to stimulate and improve children's writing, both at foundation and primary levels. Based on the concepts and objectives of the National Literacy Strategy (NLS), the content is well founded in experience, research and classroom application.

Special features include advice on planning, linking to NLS objectives, and selecting texts; demonstration scripts for teachers to use in the classroom; annotated extracts from quality literature to help children read as writers; practical advice on strategies to use in guided writing; and examples of children's work that show how to assess the children's writing and set 'next step' targets.

The authors show how you can use drama techniques, story stacks, artifacts and scenarios to engage children in writing, both in fiction and non-fiction, right across the curriculum.
