A teacher plays a pivotal role in any effective school writing program and at every year level. This book is a passionate portrayal of the journey teachers go on when they decide to write for and with their young writers. Alan J Wright takes you through the approach of modelling and demonstrating writing for students as they struggle and learn from the challenges, and joys, of becoming confident writers and communicators. When your students see that writing is something you do too, a sense of community is created in the classroom and you become more credible as a teacher of writing. The results are happier, more resourceful students who aren't turned off by the idea of writing, and benefits that can be seen in all subjects involving literacy.
