Read to Write empowers teachers to provide high-quality teaching of writing through high-quality literature. These detailed units of work centre on engaging, vocabulary-rich texts, with a wealth of writing opportunities within and across the curriculum and they also signpost wider curriculum enrichments.
These units are being implemented with great success because they also provide:
- Clear sequential Episodes of Learning
- Model Texts linked to writing outcomes within the unit
- Vocabulary learning and contextualised spelling, grammar and punctuation
- Wider reading for the wider curriculum
- Curriculum Enrichments
- A wealth of resources
- Explicit links to the national curriculum
Read to Write is evidence-based teaching of writing. These units have been carefully mapped out so the entire statutory curriculum for English is covered for each year group. They also enable schools to draw upon the wider curriculum, which supports schools to build rich curriculums.
The Read to Write units capture the soul of being an author.Sue Mills, Headteacher
This looks fantastic – really keen to get started with my class. I love the fact that this has been developed and now delivered by a teacher, and that the trainer can speak from experience.
