Writing Success for Boys

Research showing many boys are disengaged from the process of writing has laid down the challenge; this series responds. Boys won’t be able to resist its inclusive, purposeful writing programme, which puts fun and creativity at centre stage. Grounded in the author’s unique Bridge to Writing philosophy, this resource cleverly connects the dots between boys and literacy, engagement in literacy, the rhythm of learning and master teaching.

Ages: 7-13 years
