Progress in primary writing

for teachers and educators

This course examines progress within different genres of writing. The first three are INFORMATION TEXTS, INSTRUCTIONAL TEXTS, and RECOUNTS. The course explores common problems pupils experience in producing writing within these genres. The course provides advice on different sentence level techniques that might be developed in different year groups. It provides thinking prompts to help teachers consider how texts within a genre can become increasingly sophisticated. The course is aimed at teachers and educations working with pupils aged 5 to 12. The course is designed with British teachers in mind, but will be helpful to teachers working around the world.

(Note: Story writing, descriptive writing and producing book reviews will be added in December to those genres already included in the course. In the spring, sections on diary writing, persuasion, balanced arguments and poems will be added.)

The course includes : Video tutorials, downloadable guides, slideshows for supporting the delivery of training in a school, reference materials and some useful classroom materials.
