Beyond Early Writing: Teaching Writing in Primary Schools

David Waugh (Editor), Adam Bushnell (Editor), Sally Neaum (Editor)

Research output: Book/ReportBook


This essential text for primary trainees and teachers examines the key skill of writing beyond the earliest school years. Teaching writing involves much more than simply teaching the mechanics of spelling, grammar and punctuation, important though these are. There are particular issues around writing in school, including the fact that children's writing consistently lags behind their reading in external tests such as SATs, boys' relative lack of success and teachers' lack of confidence in modelling writing. This book addresses these topics as well as focusing on other pertinent practice issues such as working with proficient writers, engaging disengaged writers and working with children who have EAL and SEN.
