Product reviews for Opening Doors to Quality Writing

Alison Nash, Wicor Primary School -“ Testimonial for the Opening Doors to Quality Writing series' ERA 2017 submission
The fact Opening Doors promotes exceptional writing makes it stand apart from other resource books which tend to focus on reading and comprehension. The innovative hints and tips for each of the units help teachers access the texts and promote the deeper learning required in the new curriculum.  

The impact on learning for pupils is shown through the creative and imaginative responses to each unit. High quality texts promote high quality writing and the use of rich, precise vocabulary encourages inventive and original responses. As a teacher it is so reassuring to know that I can reach for an inspired resource book which has everything I need to lead rich learning sessions.  Opening Doors has brought literature to life: literature which might have been thought of as boring by pupils today, and motivated them to write with expertise and accuracy. The simple illustrations also help pupils to access wider meanings of the texts.

Opening Doors is cost-effective in many ways. With the requirements within the new curriculum for going deeper, this book encourages just that and promotes higher understanding in reading, comprehension and writing. Results so far reflect the higher expectation associated with this book as Opening Doors provides glass-ceiling teaching and learning ideas.  

Having Opening Doors to hand means I do not need to spend time searching endlessly for texts to teach the new curricular expectations or time spent out on courses which do not fulfil the need of providing diverse texts, learning pathways, activities and resources in a cohesive way to engage children and improve standards of literacy. Everything I need is there.

Thank you, Bob, for providing such a fantastic educational resource which has stretched learning for teachers and children alike.
