Texts that Teach
Our 'Texts That Teach' are the carefully selected books and other writings that we base our teaching sequences on.
There are a great many wonderful texts out there to share with children. However, we put a great deal of thought into the ones we choose to write teaching sequences for to ensure they offer all of the following:
- something worth discussing;
- rich language to explore;
- national curriculum age-related structures (text and grammatical) that can be replicated to inspire pupils' original compositions.
To hear from some of our chosen authors, visit our Meet the Authors page. Here, several of our favourites talk to us, and you, about their writing!
Download our Texts that Teach lists (see 'Related Content & Resources'), which we regularly update and add to, and visit our Publications page to find out more, including how to purchase our teaching sequences via our shop or through our No Nonsense Literacy publisher, Raintree.
