Accelerating writing Progress in Years 7 and 8

It is possible to accelerate students’ achievement in writing. The resource below outlines what you can do to make this happen.

At level 4, students need to confidently and independently use a wide range of writing strategies and skills to meet the demands of specific learning purposes across the curriculum. This resource is designed to support you to accelerate the writing achievement of your year 7 and 8 students so that they can meet these demands.

You can read the whole document in sequence, or you can skim it and choose relevant parts to read in detail.

The synopsis indicates the scope of this resource and shows how it is structured. A section on planning and organising for writing, is followed by sections that cover the six dimensions of effective literacy practice. Each section includes reflective questions for teachers.
