Teachers in English schools have now had ten years of prescriptive national literacy strategies and it is time for a new approach. This book encourages children from their early years to think of themselves as writers who have something to write and know how to write it. Creating Writers in the Primary Classroom offers an exciting and refreshing approach to teaching writing in the primary school with very practical suggestions to help build a community of writers in your school where everyone writes and loves writing. Building on the research of recent years and with whole-curriculum provision, it shows teachers how to actively engage children in the writing process, excite them about what they can achieve and help all children to think of themselves as writers. The book begins with a clear analysis of what real writers really need and has chapters on working outdoors, using the very best of children’s literature, drama and imaginative play, as well as sounds and images. It also features a chapter on practical, productive planning, including two case studies that show the approaches in use at schools. Creating Writers in the Primary Classroom is packed with practical advice, games and strategies for the classroom based on the authors’ successful experience as teachers and in-service providers. These new approaches will enable teachers to get their children up and moving, experiencing what writers experience, feeling what writers feel and, most important of all, writing how writers write.

The Teacher-Writer shows how teachers can pursue and sustain personally and professionally worthwhile writing practices, even amidst the many demands associated with teaching. It meets teachers wherever they are—as novice teachers just beginning to pursue writing, as teachers emerging from a professional development experience, or as accomplished writers seeking to further their craft. Chapter by chapter, the book provides strategies to help teachers get started on projects, build energy for writing, overcome obstacles of limited time, create support systems using online technologies, and develop coherence across their writing lives. The text includes useful writing group routines, questions for framing collaborative inquiry, methods for adapting writing communities to online settings, and rich examples of conversations and texts shared in actual teacher writing group meetings. Book Features: Focuses on teacher-writers and their actual experiences working together in a writing group, including benefits and challenges. Includes vignettes taken from writing group meetings that demonstrate the variety of ways teachers may participate and engage in writing. Offers practical suggestions for teachers seeking to form writing groups, including plans for online groups. Shares strategies to help teacher-writers expand their concepts of writing to include everything from exploratory texts to professional and academic writing. “An extremely important read for every teacher of writing, this book focuses on the development of ideas and the exploration of language and structure instead of formulaic routines. Here we see how teachers can locate (or reawaken) themselves as writers bringing fresh language, literacy excitement, and expertise into their classrooms.” —Judith A. Langer, distinguished research professor, University at Albany “Readers of Christine Dawson’s new book might be surprised to find themselves in a novelistic world where the literary characters are women who, through talk and writing, act in and on their complex lives. They are teachers, yes, but they are also thoughtful mothers and daughters, wives and friends, and ready companions. This is a newly liberated notion of a writing group—of women who teach—and a practical guide to those readers inspired to start their own group.” —Anne Haas Dyson, University of Illinois at Urbana–Champaign
