Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0415224144, Paperback)

Writing to Learn looks at how poetry can be used as an enjoyable way to teach literacy across the curriculum. It includes remarkable poems and stories by children as well as clear descriptions of how to teach creatively within the framework of the National Literacy Strategy. The book goes through the primary curriculum, subject by subject:
*Poetry and Science and Maths
*Poetry and Personal, Social and Moral Education
*Poetry and Art and Music
*Poetry and Religious Education
*Poetry for its Own Sake.
The author includes:
*advice on different ways children can compose their writing and how computers can be a valuable aid to children's writing
*examples of published poetry and how it can be used to stimulate good writing
*advice on bringing writers into schools and publishing school anthologies.
This book will prove invaluable to teachers and parents keen to teach writing whilst seeing children as active and critical learners. It shows that if we expect great things from children in writing, we get them.
