When the book was delivered to my front door I couldn't wait to rip the wrapper off. It is all that is says. A awesome resource. Easy to use and understand. Even mini lessons with power points.
I am currently supporting a beginning teacher and I ordered this book in the hopes that it would provide some structures and examples of effective teaching within written language. I was not disappointed. I found it to be immediately useful and am glad I have purchased it.
I love the format of the book - well set out, use of diagrams and colour and examples - brilliant!
Also great to see the emphasis on purposes for writing and the use of exemplars.
I am a Literacy and Assessment facilitator and am thrilled we now have such a practical resource to recommend to teachers.
