Writing Under Control: Teaching Writing in the Primary School

Writing Under Control: Teaching Writing in the Primary School

by Alison Kelly (Editor), JudithGraham (Editor)


Writing is a rich and complex area; it belongs to the English National Curriculum but its importance across all curriculum areas is generally acknowledged and is further encouraged by the National Literacy Strategy. To many students and newly qualified teachers the subject may seem daunting and so the intention of this revised and updated second edition is to render the teaching of writing more manageable - to place I under their control. This is a companion volume to Reading Under Control and, like it, provides comprehensive coverage of the topic. In an accessible style and with examples from the classroom the authors look at the history of writing in schools and recent theoretical developments. They also look at the practicalities of, planning classroom routines, resources, monitoring and assessment (including target setting) and meeting individual needs.

The book is particularly suitable for undergraduate and postgraduate teacher training courses and for in-service training.
