*What makes writing 'greater depth'?
*What does it looks like?
*How do I support children to develop the skills and creativity to be able to write at 'greater depth'?
Official guidance lacks the substance and clarity that is needed so where do teachers go for support?
This book provides teachers with support, guidance, background theory, examples and practical advice for the teaching of writing at greater depth. The text highlights the need to take writing beyond transcription into creative composition - and not only shows how this is possible, but also explores why it matters.
The second edition is updated with new questions for discussion supporting teacher professional learning and links to the ITT Core Content Framework for trainee teachers.
