Authorial Craft

Trainer – Sue Shelton (Learning and Assessment Consultant)


What I like in a good author is not what he says, but what he whispers.” –Logan Pearsall Smith                                                                                                                                                

Make the whispers of an author loud!                

A half day course for primary practitioners (KS1 and KS2) to explore and unpick an author’s craft as a reader leading into writing.

Can your pupils comprehend beyond simple deduction and inference skills?

Do they recognise the ‘why and how’ of authorial craft when they are reading?


The course will explore reading within multiple layers of a text; strategies and resources to support classroom working; digging deeper for pupil comprehension and how all parts of authorship interplay to influence the reader. An opportunity to network and share practices and texts.


Cost per half day session is £60 per delegate – inclusive of an authorial progression grid.
