Written by an experienced teacher and literacy consultant, this book offers an easy-to-use approach that will reduce teachers’ planning time while raising standards in writing. Building on the success of Planning to Teach Writing, it includes modern and classic picture books, short stories, and novels to provide a fantastic new range of hooks to inspire teaching and learning.

Using a tried and tested planning approach and explaining how best to use baseline assessment to build upon children’s writerly knowledge and skills it help teachers to produce effective unit plans for writing, and in doing so, they will be able to concentrate on the core business of teaching units that help children to fulfil their potential as writers.

The book uses a simple formula for success:

  1. Find your students' gaps in learning.
  2. Choose a hook that you know will engage your students.
  3. Select a unit plan that you know will support you to get the best writing out of your students.
  4. Tailor it to your students.
  5. Teach it!

This latest book is the perfect starting point for teachers planning to teach writing in their classroom, and the new stories and activities provide fresh ideas to those who are already familiar with the circle planning approach used in Planning to Teach Writing.
