Teaching Knowledge for the Art and Craft of Writing
Teaching students the knowledge and skills for writing English can be creative, engaging and effective.

I feel very passionately about the need for teachers to be continually informed of educational research findings and their instructional implications and thought your conference provided an excellent opportunity for this.’ Jessie Ross, Primary School Class Teacher, WA
