This may be a little biased because I wrote one of the chapters for this book. Check out chapter 7 - It is all about using films and images to inspire writing. (No surprise there!) The other chapters are brilliant too and a great addition to any Literacy/English teacher's reference library.
The official blurb
This essential text for primary trainees and teachers examines the key skill of writing beyond the earliest school years. Teaching writing involves much more than simply teaching the mechanics of spelling, grammar and punctuation, important though these are. There are particular issues around writing in school, including the fact that children’s writing consistently lags behind their reading in external tests such as SATs, boys’ relative lack of success and teachers’ lack of confidence in modelling writing. This book addresses these topics as well as focusing on other pertinent practice issues such as working with proficient writers, engaging disengaged writers and working with children who have EAL and SEN.
‘Like Beyond Early Reading it explores a number of key areas critically. The range of contributors adds depth and breadth.’ Karin Boyle, Manchester Metropolitan University
