Book Description

Written by an experienced teacher and literacy consultant, More Planning to Teach Writing offers an easy to use, tried and tested framework that will reduce teachers’ planning time while raising standards in writing. Using the circles planning approach, it provides fresh inspiration for teachers who want to engage and enthuse their pupils, with new, exciting and varied hooks into writing, including modern and classic picture books, short stories and novels.

Exploring how best to use baseline assessment to build upon children’s writerly knowledge and skills, each chapter puts the needs and interests of pupils at the forefront of planning, and models how to design units of work that will lead to high quality writing outcomes in any primary classroom.

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!

With a brand new and fantastic range of hooks to inspire teaching and learning, More Planning to Teach Writing ensures successful planning that will maximise engagement, enjoyment and achievement. This book is an accessible and necessary resource for any teacher planning to teach writing in their classroom.
