Happy International Literacy Day 2019

WELS academic, Dr Liz Chamberlain is pleased to be working with the National Literacy Trust to relaunch a new writing resource for teachers called Everybody Writes.

Liz worked on the original Everybody Writes project from 2007-2011 which engaged over 212,000 primary and secondary teachers.   She says, ‘I’m so pleased Everybody Writes is back out in the world again. The project made such a difference to children’s enthusiasm for writing and increased their teachers’ confidence in using innovative and creative ideas for writing.’

Fay Lant from the National Literacy Trust “The Everybody Writes approach exemplifies best practice for writing. These resources will support teachers to embed a whole school culture of writing and we are delighted to be able to support them in this.”

Liz’s book Inspiring Writing in Primary Schools further develops these ideas.
