How to Teach Fiction Writing at Key Stage 3 is a practical manual to help teachers of 11-14 year-olds to develop effective modeling and scaffolding strategies for the teaching of narrative writing. Using a step-by-step approach, based on the 'word/sentence/text level' convention, the book shows how teachers can help pupils to build work in various genres and to move out from these to more complex writing. Each section has a workshop approach that leads into a narrative writing activity, giving pupils the chance to complete a fully realized piece of work at the end each time. The workshops focus on genre features, the craft of the writer, and specific year-related needs (taken from the KS3 Framework). The book has a clear progression through KS3, and extension and support activities for the most and least able pupils are provided as an integral part of each section.

In recent years the issue of boys and literacy, namely that they are worse at it compared to girls, has become a key area of interest to all those concerned with the education of our children. This book highlights the key factors causing this divide and discusses the implementation of new strategies to overcome it, which have been the result of extensive qualitative research made by the author. Trisha Maynard reports case study findings of a primary school whose staff wanted to explore and improve boys' attitudes towards and attainment in literacy, and in particular their difficulties with writing. The book highlights issues concerning the reading and writing of stories, what teachers understand by 'good story writing' and the importance of teachers exploring boys' and girls' difficulties with literacy by themselves. It provides significant insight into boys' difficulties with writing as well as informing teachers how to find out about children's attainment.
