A great presentation on how to write a book for an emergent reader. You gave the class some excellent ideas on how to write a book for an emergent reader.

MaureenYear 6 teacher - Wodonga West Primary School

Well conducted, information packed and full involvement with the children. Great ideas for one of the hardest things to do – start writing. Well done Ian, you inspired the uninspired and particularly Owen who wouldn’t have written anything two months ago.

JoeYear 5 teacher - Beechworth Primary School

Ian’s delivery was excellent. It was clear, concise and explained the role of the author in simple terms. This session will help the children enormously when they are producing their own stories.
