Product description


Cowley has created something that's pretty rare - a guide for teachers that's both pedagogically rigorous and down to earth. Without the time to wade through the reams of theory published on this topic, the third edition of Getting the Buggers to Write presents itself as a refuge for the busy teacher. In this way, she offers exactly what so many similar books don't: practical strategies that you can immediately implement. On top of this, she's not out to criticise, or to gesture towards too many unreachable conclusions... Underpinned by a view of learning that's humane and hopeful, it encourages teachers to have confidence in themselves, while inspiring them to try new things. As such, it deserves a place in every staffroom.' --Matt Ryan, English teacher, Wilmington Grammar School for Boys, UK

A fabulously useful book that will inspire all ages to write - from young children through to grumpy disaffected teens. The practical advice and activity ideas are tried and tested and would be useful for all teachers.' --Gail Robinson, TSL Education
