How do I use the Small Writing Rainbow Symbols?
Teachers can use these icons in a range of ways:
- To enable pupils to understand ‘The Three Zones of Writing’.
- To make explicit the focus of the sentence teaching.
- To provide ‘Deepen the Moment’ challenges to groups or individuals.
- To support teaching, in particular when doing modelled writing.
Please note: A detailed explanation of each of the writing lenses can be found in Jane Considine’s book – ‘The Write Stuff – Transforming the Teaching of Writing.
