Skills for Writing
The evidence-based approach to accelerating progress in writing at KS3
Developed in partnership with Professor Debra Myhill and her team from the University of Exeter, Skills for Writing will help you to:
- embed the principles of the Grammar for Writing pedagogy - trialled and proven to almost double the rate of writing progress at KS3 for a clear route to KS4 success
- teach grammar in a contextualised way - focus on effects achieved, so students have a wider range of techniques with which to craft creative, effective texts
- provide engaging and interactive lessons - explore the Student Books on screen and the many digital resources focused on building grammatical knowledge and improving writing
- motivate your students to write independently - encourage students to reflect on their writing and understand how to improve with our range of auto-marked activities.
