Written by a hugely successful Primary Head and professional development trainer, this resource offers a pragmatic, proactive response to repeated concerns outlined by Ofsted regarding how to assist children to develop the proficiency and precision required to write high quality, extended texts. Furthermore, it shows, very clearly, how reluctant boys can achieve success as writers.The Art of Teaching Writing combines an accessible theoretical framework with a wide range of easy-to-use, high quality resource materials offering a wealth of practical support. These include over sixty model pieces of original writing that can be used by teachers, as well as twenty-five quality examples of writing created by children that can also be used as classroom models.It also contains:14 units of learningGuidance on teaching fiction, poetry and visual literacy unitsGuidance on 16 different writing styles including narratives, newspaper reports, letter writing, diary entries, biographical and descriptive writingRecommended high quality texts to create units of learning aroundQCA writing and reading assessment focusesKey Stage 2 SATs writing tasks 2000 to 2011Glossary of terminologyThe resource also features a CD-ROM for use with interactive white boards.
