Whilst browsing looking for ideas to support next week’s writing lesson, I stumble across this on Clever Classroom. The ideas are not new, but I’d like to pick up on two points in particular.
Firstly, with reference to visualising their idea – this is something which Highland Literacy promotes through the use of using media as a stimulus for writing.
Secondly, the point that Mrs Poultney makes about writing EVERY day – although extended writing with a time limit may not be appropriate in all stages, providing learners with purposeful writing experiences, with regular teacher/pupil dialogue focusing on improvement, provides learners with more than a standalone weekly writing lesson.
What will your learners write tomorrow?
