Seven Steps to Writing

Seven steps to writing, is implemented from Prep through to Grade 6. This writing program consists of ‘7 significant steps’ to help the students plan and write in a more interesting way. These steps are taught individually and slowly combined to help students improve their writing.

Dynamic Dialogue- including talking but skipping the boring bits
Show, Don’t Tell- using descriptive language
Ban the Boring- No waking up, eating breakfast, getting on buses- straight to the action
Exciting Ending- ending on a high
