    • children writing in and out of school
    • EAL and gender issues in writing
    • the development of writing across the years of the primary school
    • planning classroom routines and organising resources
    • balancing the composition and transcription elements in writing
    • monitoring and assessing writing
    • meeting individual needs
    • managing specific learning difficulties in writing, such as dyslexia

With its companion Reading under Control (also in its third edition), this book provides undergraduate and postgraduate teachers with comprehensive guidance for the teaching of literacy.
