This book focuses on an approach to teaching writing in the primary school called the 'process approach'. The approach has been recognized internationally as an important method for the teaching of primary writing. In the UK it has become a focus particularly through the National Writing Project, the LINC project and more recently in the National Curriculum.
At a time of increasing traditionalism in primary education Primary Writing portrays an in-depth account of an innovative approach to the teaching of writing. Primary Writing is the first book length examination of the process approach in the UK and convincingly demonstrates its strengths and benefits. For any teacher who uses a 'mixture of methods' the process approach cannot be ignored.
The author has eight years experience as a primary teacher at KS1 and KS2 and as a Language Coordinator in inner-city and suburban schools. His experience of using the process approach in the classroom and sharing the approach with colleagues has resulted in a text that gives detailed and vibrant examples of practice alongside relevant research.
