Less Good Writing

From £13.49

This playful, practical manual focuses on improving writing across the secondary curriculum. 

In secondary schools, students encounter demands on their literacy skills that are often not even acknowledged by their teachers, let alone supported. However, we not only need to improve the quality of writing, we also need to question its quantity to ensure that teachers give students opportunities for other ways of recording and consolidating their learning. In short, we need less, good writing. 

Less Good Writing provides a clear rationale for improvement as well as some effective short cuts to success.

It is designed to support literacy co-ordinators and senior leaders in defining priorities and getting sustainable activity going. It also contains a wealth of advice and ideas which teachers will find of immediate practical use in their lessons.

The activities in this impressive toolkit are a timely contribution to effective intervention programmes and can be used in lessons, in small groups, and easily adapted for one-to-one tuition sessions.
