How to teach story writing

This manual for teachers demonstrates practical ways of teaching story writing in a dynamic, creative and imaginative way, related to the Key Stage 1 National Literacy Framework. The book presents a series of creative story workshops, based on the writer’s own experience both as a teacher and poet running workshops in schools. The workshops show how you can grow the roots of the story writing through storytelling and reading, and demonstrate the importance of learning a few well-known tales. Model stories are provided for storytelling, and there are ideas for drama and role play.
