David Waugh is a former deputy headteacher who worked in ITT from 1990 at the University of Hull, where he led the PGCE course and became Head of Department. In 2008 he was appointed as one of two (the other being Wendy) National Strategies Regional Advisers for ITT. He is currently lectures at Durham University. He has published extensively in primary English, as well as developing e-learning resources for National Strategies for English, mathematics and mentoring and coaching.

As with so many things in life, children learn best by example, so teachers need to be able to model good writing skills. The authors spend their time modelling writing for other teachers and that practical experience shines through in this book, which is full of inspiring ideas. The ideas are easy to use and cover a wide range of different writing genres, including poetry, fanfiction and film. The activities are well defined and offer excellent ideas, along with case studies to show the concepts in practice. A valuable book for both new and experienced teachers. -- Sarah Brew * Parents in Touch *
