Richard Andrews

Research output: Book/ReportBook


The National Curriculum identifies drafting and editings essential skills for AT3 from levels 4 to 10. Schools have increasingly recognised these skills as important but they are rarely systematically taught. "Drafting and Editing" offers a comprehensive selection of imaginative activities for students in key stages 3 and 4 - leading them through all the stages of drafting and editing: planning, sequencing, structuring, the selection of detail, layout, revision, re-writing, proof-reading etc. Students learn techniques by seeing how professional writers tackle these tasks go back to their own writing with a fresh eye and a new confidence in the editing
