Teacher support materials

These Teacher Support Materials (TSMs) have been developed to support teaching writing across the curriculum in years 4-8. They are centred around three main “drivers” when planning across the curriculum: students’ strengths and needs, curriculum foci, and contexts for learning. They draw on stories and themes from the School Journal and Connected across Science, Social Sciences, and English, L2-L4.
