The Story Kitchen is a research-informed writing programme for primary schools. Designed to improve writing motivation, skill and attainment, the programme contains a strong direct teaching and deliberate practice element, with a focus on how to write, craft and expand sentences and texts. The course explores a research model of writing and how this can be aligned to Curriculum for Excellence, as well as a consideration of Cognitive Load Theory and its implications for writing in the classroom.

Episode 1: The Simple View of Writing: A Useful Model; Self-Evaluation and Discussion; Cognitive Load Theory
Episode 2: Assessment, Planning and Marking; Basic Skills & SPAGHETTI; Teaching and Learning: Direct Teaching & Deliberate Practice
