Talk for Writing: Review of related research
Roger Beard, Emeritus Professor of Primary Education, UCL Institute of Education, London
This Review of related research identifies the ways in which the main elements of T4W are supported by peer-reviewed research and other scholarly publications. The Review was commissioned by the Primary Writing Project, of which Talk for Writing is now a central part, and funded with the assistance of a grant from the Education Endowment Foundation. The Primary Writing Project supports clusters of schools with similar writing interests in working collaboratively over time. In each school, all teachers and teaching assistants have whole day training sessions. There is also a project team in each school that meets regularly.
