Writing for Primary is, as you may imagine, creative and fun. But don't make the mistake of thinking that primary materials are easier to write than more ‘dense’ materials for teenagers or adults. This is not the case, and multi-talented author Kath Bilsborough provides essential background information about the particular challenges of writing for this age group – an age when children are developing their cognitive skills at the same time as they are learning English. Variety is important for young learners and Kath provides a useful list of activities that work well for primary. She then goes into detail about writing stories, games and songs. Tasks throughout the eBook give you a chance to write your own activities and compare them with Kath’s published materials.
This eBook forms part of the ELT Teacher 2 Writer training course. The training modules are designed to help you write better ELT materials, either for publication, or simply to improve the quality of your self-produced classroom materials.
