Beyond Early Writing

Teaching Writing in Primary Schools

Edited by: David Waugh, Adam Bushnell, Sally Neaum

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 modeling writing. The 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 where English is a second language or who have special educational needs. *** Librarians: ebook available on ProQuest and EBSCO (Series: Critical Teaching) [Subject: Education]
