3 books 'How to write what you want to say …  in the secondary years' to use together

There are three books in the How to write what you want to say … in the secondary years set, written to assist students who know what they want to say but can’t find the words. The three books have been written to be used together.

  1. How to write what you want to say …  in the secondary years (2nd edition) covers 25 different writing skills for a range of purposes.

For each skill it sets out the meaning of the writing skill, things to know and an example of the writing skill, with the language associated with that skill in bold.

It includes a comprehensive list of sentence starters and language for connecting ideas within and between sentences for each writing skill.

This book is for students and teachers.

    1. How to write what you want to say …  in the secondary years: teacher’s guide provides guidelines for the explicit teaching of a writing skill, using a four-stage process.
    • Deconstructing a text that is an example of the skill. The text structure and the language used (sentence starters and connectives within and between sentences) are identified.
    • Modelling a text that is an example of the skill.
    • Jointly constructing  a text that is an example of the skill.
    • Independently constructing a text that is an example of the skill.

      The teacher’s guide contains the answers to the activities that students complete in their workbooks. It also contains completed graphic organisers for the examples of the writing skills in How to write what you want to say … in the secondary years (2nd edition).

      1. How to write what you want to say …  in the secondary years: student workbook is full of activities for students to practise deconstructing and constructing texts that demonstrate writing skills.
      Through repeated exposure to fit-for-purpose graphic organisers, sentence starters and language for connecting ideas within and between sentences, students become confident writers.
