Talk for writing,Talk for writing,Introduction, Thanks to the considerable efforts of teachers across the country recent years have seen significant. improvements in children s writing outcomes particularly at Key Stage 2 However national standards. remain a major concern and too many primary school children do not attain as highly or make as much. progress in writing as they do in reading This applies particularly though not exclusively to boys. Yet in a small but significant number of schools most children including boys and girls of all abilities. and from a wide range of backgrounds consistently learn to write as well as they read This clearly. demonstrates that it is a reasonable and realistic expectation. These Talk for writing materials support teachers in further developing children s writing throughout the. teaching sequence They build on the National Strategies Support for writing resources ensuring a focus on. a personalised approach to planning based on effective assessment for learning. The Talk for writing approaches were initially introduced through a series of workshops which the National. Strategies provided in collaboration with professional writer Pie Corbett in the South West East and. East Midlands regions in 2007 8 Many teachers subsequently developed the approaches in their own. classrooms and schools These teachers were extremely positive about the impact and how much they. and the children enjoyed working in these ways They reported that children s engagement in writing. increased particularly for boys and previously reluctant writers They also found that the quality of. children s writing improved significantly, Bridging the gap between quality talk and quality writing is always challenging With my Year 1 class I often. wondered why after providing lots of opportunities for speaking and listening writing outcomes didn t reflect the. varied and interesting vocabulary used in their talk The question for me was Can children modify their writing. more effectively if they hear it and keep making changes until the Talk for writing becomes the writing. Year 1 teacher following the workshops, We hope that all schools will now explore and develop Talk for writing through their collaborative. continuing professional development CPD and that headteachers and leadership teams will want to. pursue this as a key element of their ongoing school development cycle as described in the booklet. Leading improvement using the Primary Framework DCSF 00484 2007BKT EN. The brief introduction to Talk for writing provided by this booklet is supplemented by extensive. exemplification on two DVDs one is an interactive resource drawing heavily on classroom video and case. studies from schools that took part in the original workshops the other offers key extracts from the Talk for. writing CPD sessions presented by Pie Corbett on behalf of the National Strategies in May 2008.

Talk for writing,What is Talk for writing,Good writers. enjoy writing and find the process creative enriching and fulfilling. read widely recognise good writing and understand what makes it good. are aware of the key features of different genres and text types. learn about the skills of writing from their reading and draw consciously or unconsciously upon its. models in their own work,have something to say a purpose and audience. know how to develop their ideas,know how to plan and prepare for writing. make informed choices about what they are writing as they write for example about vocabulary. grammar text structure etc, understand how to reflect upon refine and improve their own work.
can respond to the constructive criticism of others. For experienced writers many of these processes are internal and automatic For example they can hold. an internal dialogue with themselves about the language choices available and consider how effective a. particular word or phrase will be or how well it reads. However for developing writers it is very helpful for these processes to be explored through talk in a. supportive learning context This involves externalising and sharing the thinking involved in the writing. process so that ultimately it can be internalised and individualised again. It is this developmental exploration through talk of the thinking and creative processes involved in. being a writer that we are calling Talk for writing. Crown copyright 2008 00467 2008BKT EN,4 The National Strategies Primary. Talk for writing,The teaching sequence for writing. One of the key ways in which the Primary Framework supports the teaching of writing is through the. recommended approach to planning The exemplified units provide a model of planning for learning. across longer extended units of work where reading planning and writing occur in the context of a rich. and varied curriculum The basis for the approach was set out in the joint UKLA and Primary National. Strategy publication Raising boys achievements in writing 2004 Based on the work of Bearne 2002 the. research recommended a structured sequence to planning where the children and teachers began by. familiarising themselves with a text type capturing ideas for their own writing followed by scaffolded. writing experiences resulting in independent written outcomes.

To be productive Talk for writing needs to be extensively embedded in every phase of this teaching. sequence that is, During reading When familiarising with the genre text type and its key features when responding to. exploring and drawing on models, Before writing When generating ideas preparing for and planning writing. During all stages of writing teacher s demonstration and scribing and children s supported guided. and independent writing When making the choices involved in creating developing and improving. After writing When reflecting on and learning from a writing experience. In this it will need to be structured at the following three levels. Teacher talk The verbalisation of the reader s or writer s thought processes as the teacher is. demonstrating modelling and discussing, Supported pupil talk Structured and scaffolded opportunities for children to develop and practise.
Talk for writing through class and group conversations and activities. Independent pupil talk Opportunities for children to develop and practise Talk for Writing in pairs. and small groups independent of the teacher, All of this needs to be applied in whole class learning and teaching and in guided writing. The precise nature of what is planned as Talk for writing in any particular unit will obviously need to. take into careful account,the purpose and audience of the writing. the key features of genre text type,the learning objectives of the unit. the current learning targets of the children identified through Assessment for Learning AfL. see Support for writing, implications for the children s social and emotional development SEAL. the needs of particular children and groups such as English as an additional language learners.

Talk strategies, During the CPD and its subsequent follow up in schools Talk for writing was developed around certain key. strategies,1 Book talk, Book talk is the extended opportunity to use talk to explore children s personal and collective responses. to a text as readers, It is categorically not a barrage of closed comprehension questions but rather an open ended eliciting.
and development of response, After careful reading of a shared text the teacher often best initiates book talk with open invitations. such as Tell me what you thought felt about What came into your mind when you read or Have. you come across anything like this before and then focuses on extending the children s responses with. prompts such as Tell me more about What led you to think that or Can you extend that idea a bit. for us Frequently groups of children can be supported and encouraged to feed off each other s thinking. and talking with prompts such as Do you agree or did anyone have a different response to that story. paragraph sentence word In this way rich exchanges often occur helping children to develop and extend. their own responses, A more detailed explanation of the nature and importance of book talk is given by Pie Corbett on DVD 1. where examples of book talk in the classroom can also be found. Examples of CPD sessions to develop book talk can be found on DVD 2. 2 Writer talk, Writer talk is the articulation of the thinking and creative processes involved in all stages of the act of writing. talk that helps children to think and behave like a writer and indeed consider themselves to be one. It involves externalising and making explicit through talk the thinking involved in both reading as a. writer understanding what response the writer wishes to elicit in the reader and how he she achieves. this and writing as a reader applying the same understanding when making the choices involved in. planning creating and improving one s own writing, Writer talk is most helpful when focused on the purpose and audience of a piece of writing that is its. intended effect on the reader Although it will often rightly and importantly consider choices made at. word and sentence level these always need to be seen in this text level context. It is a useful way of following up and reinforcing direct teaching of the features of a particular genre text. A more detailed explanation of the nature and importance of writer talk is given by Pie Corbett on DVD 1. where examples of writer talk in the classroom can also be found. Examples of CPD sessions to develop writer talk can be found on DVD 2. 3 Storytelling and story making, This involves the learning and repeating of oral stories building children s confidence to develop them.
through telling and then extending that development into writing later creating new stories orally as a. preparation and rehearsal for writing, The learning and development of stories through oral retelling builds up in children enormously valuable. banks of language and narrative patterning that can be incorporated into later writing It can also build. towards a confidence to create original stories although even these often draw on or magpie previously. learned read ideas and to rehearse them orally,00467 2008BKT EN Crown copyright 2008.
