The Write Book teacher toolkit -free resource for primary teachers
The Write Book teacher toolkit for creative writing is now online here! http://www.booktrust.org.uk/programmes/primary/the-write-book/
This is a free set of resources for primary school teachers including interactive film workshops with top children’s authors and personalised writing tools and audits to help you plan an inspiring writing project using a high quality children’s book as a focus. There’s also The Writers’ Book, a free-to-download guide to using six fantastic contemporary children’s books in the classroom to inspire writing.
The Write Book toolkit also includes case studies from primary schools that have run brilliantly creative writing projects in their schools based on books as varied as Gulliver’s Travels and Neil Gaiman’s The Wolves in the Walls; Professor Astro Cat’s Frontiers of Space to the Dr Who Character Encyclopedia and much more. You can find the best children’s books using Book Trust’s online bookfinder and read the project evaluation to find out just how successful the project has been in inspiring EAL children and reluctant readers and writers to play with words and love stories.
Please let us know how you use the resources here – or please share them with your colleagues. What is The Write Book for your school?
