A series of teacher-friendly lessons designed to create a writers' workshop for pupils aged between seven and 13 years is contained in this step-by-step guide. The lessons range from introducing the terminology and methods of a writers' workshop to students to complex processes in creative and journalistic writing. Using the praise, questions and polish (PQP) strategies, each 10- to 15-minute lesson teaches a very specific writing skill.
