Opening Doors to Quality Writing

June 27, 2017

Doors Opening Across the UK - Links and Trails – The Adventure of Literature A new blog from Author Bob Cox.

Since the excitement of winning an Education Resources Award in the ‘educational book’ category earlier this year, I have continued a pioneering trail with ‘Opening Doors’ across the UK in schools, conferences and cluster meetings!

A recent Michael Rosen tweet seemed to sum up the kinds of approaches we are supporting schools with:

“The best way to learn how to write well is to investigate how good writers write ...”

I want to tell you about some very exciting links and trails which are arising from schools delving deeper into the potential of quality texts – getting inspired by great writers and teaching with such rigour and passion that pupils’ own writing starts to reach new heights. Schools who have worked for longer with the Opening Doors team have tended to find that more links and ideas evolve as the books’ strategies are more frequently used, with one creative possibility leading to another.
