"The Writing Circle" explores class-based writing groups as a powerful tool for giving pupils the support and guidance they need. Based on a format commonly used in the world of creative writing, these groups provide an ideal way for pupils to learn from each other. With guidance, young writers can work together on all aspects of the writing process - sharing drafts of writing, responding to each other's work and building their confidence as writers. The writing process is dynamic; writers move from one stage to another doing two - or more - things at once.Pupils become more energised in this dynamic process and interact with peers. Writing circles have the added bonus of giving teachers opportunities to observe, advise, learn, teach and take part in group discussions. This practical and comprehensive resource includes everything you will need to run writing circles in the classroom. Sample lessons outline specific learning goals, and offer suggestions for student and teacher roles. Some writing circle lessons require step-by-step guidance from the teacher through the activities, but groups will gradually gain their own momentum as they become more independent, skilled and confident writers.
