Inspiring and Inclusive lessons to engage all boys in the writing process
Research showing many boys are disengaged from the process of writing has laid down the challenge; the Writing Success for Boys series responds. Grounded in the author’s unique
“bridge to writing” philosophy, it cleverly connects the dots between boys and literacy, engagement in literacy, the rhythm of learning and master teaching. Fun and creativity occupy
centre stage as the author shows how to draw boys into writing and inspire them to persist, no matter what fiction or non-fiction text type they are working on. Each book contains
ideas for lesson plans following the bridge to writing rhythm, along with templates and other photocopiable resources for fun activities. Boys – and any other reluctant or hesitant writers –
won’t be able to resist this inclusive, purposeful writing programme.
Each book in this series:
• Sets out an insightful writing programme that engages boys – and by extension a diversity of learners – and guides them to writing success
• Follows a philosophy that focuses on building a bridge to writing by making it purposeful, creative and fun
• Offers inspirational ideas and inclusive lesson plans that are readily adaptable to all text types for both fiction and non-fiction writing
• Stands out with its variety of inventive activities to get all the students in your class writing – and enjoying it!
