Description

 – Starters and Strategies for Writing in the Classroom

The Writing Ideas Bank is a mad and funny book about teaching and learning writing. Written in a quick and witty style that will appeal to young writers, it has been designed to give both students and teachers a range of practical (and nutty) writing strategies that will support all writing genres.

Based on the idea that the skills learnt in one type of writing are transportable to all writing types, The Writing Ideas Bank will spark students who are unenthusiastic about writing and give fresh ideas to those who already enjoy writing.

The book has an extensive teacher introductory section which looks at issues like:

  • Process versus genre
  • The vexed question of assessment
  • Purpose and audience
  • The importance of provoking a range of writing tasks

Students will work on a range of small and extended tasks which can be easily incorporated into current writing programmes or the tasks can form a writing programme for a term.

Divided into three units the student pages are as follows:

  • Unit One: The Beginning Bit (prewriting and gathering ideas)
  • Unit Two: The Middle Bit (developing the ideas)
  • Unit Three: The End Bit (perfecting the techniques)

ABOUT THE AUTHOR:

During the day Jim Lindsay works as a columnist for a newspaper and as a part-time lecturer for a university school of education. At night he scribbles and plots.
