Write First Summary

Write First: Progression in Cross-curricular Writing Skills: Student Book 3 by Ray Barker

The "Write First" series for 11-14 yr olds puts writing skills at the top of the agenda. Each pupil book includes a wide variety of text-types (giving particular attention to the non literary), and each text is accompanied by three categories of activity. It aims to develop awareness of the special features of the writing, and can be used as a model for achieving similar effects. The features practised can be used to write an original piece.
