Description

How many times as a teacher have you heard the cry 'But I don't know what to write'? This all too familiar fear of the blank page can be overcome by using the wealth of practical suggestions for helping children to feel more confident as they strive to master the complex combination of skills that make up the craft of writing. Steve Bowkett, an experienced author and writer, suggests a two-pronged attack: giving children a toolkit of techniques for generating and organising ideas of their own, coupled with methods for perceiving themselves as writers - all designed to boost self-esteem and self-confidence. This book will help to motivate children (Primary and Lower Secondary) towards becoming more creative, confident and effective writers - an attitude that will lead to beneficial effects in many other areas of learning too.
