This course will offer you a range of ideas to engage and challenge your students and help them to become confident and independent writers of non-fiction, narrative and descriptive texts. We will address some important questions, such as how to make the teaching enjoyable and memorable while successfully preparing students for the exams. Mini-units for you to take away will provide a basis for exploring issues, classroom strategies and good practice.

What will the course cover?

  • Underlying principles with a basis in research.
  • Mini-units with strategies to prompt and support writing and develop independence.
  • How to make a real difference to your students’ progress.
  • Making virtuous links between reading and writing.

Even after 25 years I still go away with so many fantastic ideas and lots of different ways of thinking about teaching English.
