Talk for Writing – Writing Models

Writing Models aims to help teachers cover every sort of writing type they need including visual and multimodal texts; fine tune lessons by following key teaching points for each model; and deliver the new literacy units to pupils of varying ability using different versions of the same model.

Each book in the series gives you: a bank of easy-to-use, photocopiable models for writing covering poetry, fiction and non-fiction for each year group; key teaching points for each model; simpler and harder examples for differentiation. Teachers who want to cut lesson planning time should welcome this series.
