How to use the 'How to write what you want to say …  in the secondary years' set

The best-selling guide How to write what you want to say…has been updated - and is now accompanied by a Student Workbook and Teachers Guide. 

The three books in the How to write what you want to say … in the secondary years  set were 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 with cross references and links between each of the books.

 

The new "little blue book"

The second edition of How to write what you want to say …  in the secondary years 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 both students and teachers.

 

The teacher's guide

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. 
  • 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 included in the little blue book.

     

    The student workbook

    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.
