Code: SM985 Reading into Writing Strategies

Reading is at the heart of teaching English, so a range of wonderful texts (including books, extracts, images and film) will be the stimulus throughout the day. We will immerse ourselves in these texts and journey from reading into writing, exploring how authors use grammar effectively, what effect this has on readers and how this can inspire writing. Along the way we will use lots of practical strategies such as drama, games, modelling and talking activities.
