Information for Teachers
An innovative new teaching resource designed for multiple ages and abilities.
Ultimately, primary teachers have the following objectives:
To make the overarching teaching of literacy more effective
To make a positive difference to a child's literacy skills
To see their children genuinely enjoying the learning experience
To ensure that there is a consistent and sustained approach to literacy within their school
Mighty Writer is specifically designed to support teachers in achieving these goals by concentrating on the process of sentence creation, and by providing a visual and interactive approach to learning.
As primary teachers know, the teaching of literacy is complex. This is due to the many features which need to be incorporated into good quality writing. Children wrestle with an array of components such as generating content ideas, and choosing and using appropriate punctuation, vocabulary, structure and characterisation, as well as many other considerations. This often leads to a lack of motivation and enjoyment for the children, and ultimately slows progress which results in underachievement. This can have a significant impact later on in life.
It is also complex for the teacher as they seek to model and teach key concepts in clear and concise ways in order that children become increasingly independent and competent. Teachers face further challenges in terms of the range of abilities they will often need to accommodate, as well as the varying speeds of progression you may find in one class.
