NATE has recently formed a publishing partnership with Routledge Publishers, and an exciting new list is now in production. The first titles to be published, now available in the Bookshop, are a brand new edition of a popular CD by Trevor Millum and Chris Warren, now entitled Unlocking Poetry - An Inspirational Resource for Teaching GCSE Literature and a valuable addition to any A Level teacher's repertoire: Teaching English Language 16-19: A comprehensive guide for teachers of AS/A2 level English Language (Teaching English Literature 16-19 will be published in June 2013). You can find information about this and all forthcoming titles on the Routledge site. You can order all NATE Routledge titles from the NATE Bookshop, with a 10% minimum discount for NATE members.
Good writing is clearly the key to success in most school subjects and is therefore the major target for many schools' action plans. In particular, the focus currently is on improving boys' attainment in their written work.
Starting from important general issues on the teaching of writing, this publication, written by two well known NATE members, gives practical guidance for helping pupils to plan and structure their work. Illustrations are given of individual pieces of work with commentary on ways of moving children on in their expression and composition.
The differing approaches, interests and writing styles of girls and boys are considered and strategies for inspiring all pupils' interest in writing are suggested.
