The Writing Classroom
This book brings together a collection of essays on the teaching of writing. It is a companion to Prue Goodwin’s The Literate Classroom and The Articulate Classroom and aims to:
augment our existing knowledge about the teaching and learning of writing
stimulate thought and provoke discussion about writing
offer a blend of theory and practice
give ‘food for thought’ and ideas for teaching writing to primary age children.
The topic of writing is one which is under the spotlight with increasing regularity as politicians and policy makers move on from reading as an ‘issue’. This has already happened in England where the National Literacy Strategy is urging more emphasis on the teaching of writing to remedy weaknesses in this area.
