Each book in this series:
• focuses on both surface and deeper features of students’ writing
• describes the features of non-fiction text types
• includes levelled writing exemplars for student analysis and group or class discussion
• models how to use exemplars to stimulate and develop students’ writing.
In this series, Phillip Simpson shares his expertise in teaching writing with teachers. He provides a clear and concise account of writing pedagogy followed by sections on each of the non-fiction text types – recounts, reports, explanations, expositions and
procedures. These sections include descriptions of the structure, text features, and purpose of each text type. An engaging collection of carefully-chosen texts is included
as exemplars of each text type. Discussion points that support students to analyse the text structures enhance the teaching value of these exemplars. Non-fiction Writing will support teachers to teach the details of writing with clarity while inspiring students to write with confidence.
