How to Teach Poetry Writing at Key Stage 3 is a practical manual for teachers, to be used directly in the classroom. The book begins with a series of poetry games designed to warm up creativity and strengthen the imagination. These are followed by a series of creative poetry workshops, based on the writer's own experience both as a teacher and poet running workshops in schools, which focus on developing a 'poetry base' for young writers. This imaginative base provides a range of poetic techniques and gives pupils experience in developing a repertoire of different forms. The book also offers advice on how to organize an effective workshop, and demonstrates how to teach poetry writing in a dynamic, creative and imaginative way in relationship with the KS3 national framework. Pie Corbett also provides useful advice on working with visiting poets in school, addresses for relevant web-sites, a list of books for follow-up work and a glossary of poetic forms and techniques. Workshops include writing from first hand observation; autobiography - valuing our lives; writing about paintings, sculpture and music; surreal boxes and the bag of words; secrets, lies, wishes and dreams; creating images, taking word snapshots; riddles - hiding the truth; and red wheelbarrows and messages for mice.

How to Teach Fiction Writing at Key Stage 3 is a practical manual to help teachers of 11-14 year-olds to develop effective modeling and scaffolding strategies for the teaching of narrative writing. Using a step-by-step approach, based on the 'word/sentence/text level' convention, the book shows how teachers can help pupils to build work in various genres and to move out from these to more complex writing. Each section has a workshop approach that leads into a narrative writing activity, giving pupils the chance to complete a fully realized piece of work at the end each time. The workshops focus on genre features, the craft of the writer, and specific year-related needs (taken from the KS3 Framework). The book has a clear progression through KS3, and extension and support activities for the most and least able pupils are provided as an integral part of each section.

Children's achievements in writing lag behind their achievements in reading, speaking and listening. National tests are beginning to expose this gap and inevitably, it is raising concerns. The issue is not without controversy but regardless of the politics of the situation, national progress in children's writing is both needed and possible. This new book from Eve Bearne makes a valuable contribution towards helping teachers close this gap. Uniquely, it follows the structure of the National Literacy Strategy, whilst examining key areas such as bridging KS2 and KS3 writing, and writing skills beyond the Literacy Hour. Such a structure makes the book incredibly practical and easy to use, providing essential information for both practitioners and academics.

How do you approach teaching English in the modern classroom? What is expected of a would-be English teacher? This best-selling textbook combines theory and practice to present a broad introduction to the opportunities and challenges of teaching English in secondary school classrooms. Each chapter explains the background to debates about teaching the subject and provides tasks, practical teaching approaches and further reading to explore issues and ideas in relation to school experience. Already a major text for many university teacher education courses, this new edition has been thoroughly updated in the light of recent revisions to the National Curriculum for English, examination syllabuses and the Standards for Qualified Teacher Status. As well as containing critical explorations of the history and definitions of the subject and policies such as the Secondary National Strategy that are appropriate to Professional and Masters level PGCE study, other chapters present a broad range of effective, innovative approaches to teaching such crucial areas as: reading and writing, speaking and listening; drama; media studies and information and communications technology; grammar, poetry and language study; Shakespeare; post-16 English language and literature. Written particularly with the new and student teacher in mind, this book offers principles and practical examples of teaching and learning within a 21st Century context in which new notions of literacy compete with demands of national assessment. Taking these changing principles as a starting point, the text also addresses questions about the nature of initial teacher preparation and raises issues concerning standards-based teacher education, mentoring in schools and monitoring the development of a student teacher.
