Getting on with writing, Less good writing and Leading Reading

Teachit has teamed up one of our key contributors, Richard Durant, and Devon Learning & Development Partnership, to publish a brand new literacy series.

Literacy is high on the Ofsted and curriculum agenda, and Leading Reading offers advice on how to embed and promote good reading skills across the curriculum.

The Ofsted inspection framework and standards for teachers require a renewed focus on literacy and differentiation. Getting on with writing provides exactly this, with engaging, differentiated activities aimed at moving KS3 students from Level 2 to 5 in writing.

Focused on improving the quality of writing across the secondary curriculum, Less good writing offers a wealth of practical advice, ideas and short-cuts to literacy co-ordinators, senior leaders and teachers, and will help students to realise that less (writing) is sometimes more!
