Jane Considine's The Write Stuff Training
The Write Stuff - Transform the Teaching of Writing course
Jane Considine's brand new online training is now live and ready to access.
"I honestly believe this is the most meaningful and powerful course you can go on as a primary school teacher. The impact that 'The Write Stuff' approach has had within my own classroom is incredible. It is easy to implement following Jane's training and can be done completely at your own pace. The high quality modelling enables the children to succeed when they come to do their own independent writing and they love to see their own work regularly celebrated on the wall in the Sentence Stacking. The fact that everything is so visual has helped with my setting where a high proportion of children are EAL. 'The Write Stuff' has totally revolutionised my current practice and produced some really incredible writing that the children are proud of. Who doesn't want a vocabulary rich classroom where children are excited to write?"

What is The Write Stuff?
The Write Stuff, created by Jane Considine, is a system that will sharpen the teaching and learning of writing within your classroom. It is research informed and practically applies evidence into effective best bets for improving writing outcomes.
The Write Stuff - Transform the Teaching of Writing
The online course is broken down into 5 modules (we call them days) that can be completed at your own pace.
The Write Stuff is based on two guiding principles; teaching sequences that slide between experience days and sentence stacking lessons. With modelling at the heart of them, the sentence stacking lessons are broken into bite-sized chunks and taught under the structural framework of The Writing Rainbow. Teachers prepare children for writing by modelling the ideas, grammar or techniques of writing.
Key benefits of The Write Stuff:
Support for teachers so that they have a deeper and more flexible knowledge of sentence structure.
Pupils who understand how to apply sentence scaffolds to their independent writing as they develop their expertise.
Standards improve because many worked examples are provided over the year that extend understanding through a wide range of genres and non-fiction text types.
Children have a clear view of what high quality writing looks like and their learning is structured clearly and misconceptions dealt with.
Pupils know how to improve their writing and make it more focussed and actionable feedback is provided to guide their learning.
Children have a concept of how to build, plan and complete a piece of writing due to narrative maps and non-fiction shapes.
Teachers have clear pathways of how to guide pupils in weak areas such as cohesion and paragraphs.
