From Muddleton Manor to Clarity Cathedral: Improving Year 12's Extended Writing through an Enhanced Sense of the Reader
Brown, Mary
Teaching History, n150 p6-12 Mar 2013
Mary Brown recognised that her A-level students were finding extended writing difficult, particularly in terms of guiding the reader through the argument with appropriate "signposting". To help her students manage this, Brown devised a metaphor to represent the construction of a piece of argumentative writing which she deployed over a sequence of lessons. This metaphor helped students reflect explicitly on the way in which an argument is structured over a piece of extended writing. (Contains 5 figures.)
