Summary

Now in an updated second edition How to Teach Writing Across the Curriculum: Ages 8-14 provides a range of practical suggestions for teaching non-fiction writing skills and linking them to children’s learning across the curriculum. Emphasising creative approaches to teaching children’s writing in diverse and innovative ways, it provides:

  • information on the organisation and language features of the six main non-fiction text types (recount, report, instruction, explanation, persuasion and discussion)
  • suggestions for the use of cross-curricular learning as a basis for writing
  • planning frameworks for children to promote thinking skills
  • advice on developing children’s writing to help with organisational issues – paragraphing and layout, and the key language features
  • examples of non-fiction writing
  • suggestions for talk for learning and talk for writing (including links to 'Speaking Frames'; also published by Routledge)
  • information on the transition from primary to secondary school.

With new hints and tips for teachers and suggestions for reflective practice as well as a wealth of photocopiable materials, How to Teach Writing Across the Curriculum: Ages 8-14 will equip teachers with all the skills needed to create enthusiastic non-fiction writers in their classroom.
