365 days in my shoes Day 251


Lots of fab resources have hit the timelines this week.

The first resource on my list has to be my favourite this week. Pie Corbett is well renowned for Talk for Writing in the Primary school sector. He also does a lot of work with Julia Strong. She has put together a book for secondary schools on Talk for Writing. It is hot off the press.

Many twitter chat feeds often focus upon literacy across the curriculum. I think this book will provide lots of support, especially to those teachers who are required to embed literacy into their subject, teach it within their subject and who aren’t necessarily English experts.

I’ve ORRdered it!
