Publisher Comments:

Able Writers in Your School will help educators develop the potential of gifted pupils - and all the other pupils in the school as well It passes on ideas, practical advice and lesson plans that the authors, Brian Moses and Roger Stevens, have found to work especially well with the groups of able writers they have taught over the last few years. Over 70 inspirational examples of children's work show how ideas work in practice and raise the standard of children's work. Suggestions for poetry range from taking an idea and stretching it, making the familiar scary and dealing with serious issues. The chapters on prose include creating a realistic character, building conflict, looking at point of view and developing dialogue. Brain Moses is one of Britain's best-loved children's poets and has published over 160 books and performed in over 2000 schools across the UK and Europe. Roger Stevens is a performance poet, author, musician and artist. His poems have appeared in more than one hundred anthologies and he performs his poetry and runs creative writing workshops for both young and old. In 2002, Brian Moses set up the Able Writers Scheme to enable professional writers to work with groups of talented pupils drawn from clusters of schools, to challenge them and develop their writing skills. The Able Writers Scheme is now supported by the National Education Trust. Able Writers in Your School gives you the chance to stretch your able writers in any direction their creativity takes them.
