Hall, John; And Others
Offering guidance on diagnostic and developmental techniques, this teacher's guide helps teachers to assess pupils' understanding and day-to-day progress in writing and to identify appropriate next steps to help pupils make progress. The teacher's guide examines the process of writing, offering guidance on classroom activities relating to preparing for writing, drafting and redrafting, and preparing to publish. After an introduction, sections of the teacher's guide discuss taking a closer look at learning to write (including involving pupils, when to intervene, and qualities in writing), diagnostic procedures in writing (including obtaining evidence, focusing on growth points, and acting on evidence), and areas for exploration (including preparing for writing, drafting and redrafting, and preparing to publish).
