The Reader in the Writer Summary Report

The links between the study of literature and children’s writing development at Key Stage 2. This project took place in 1998 – 99 in five London primary schools. The aim of the project was to observe any changes that took place in children’s writing when they studied challenging literary texts in the classroom. A further aim was to help teachers develop a literature programme for their classes (within the context of the National Literacy Strategy). The project was directed by Myra Barrs and coordinated by Val Cork. Margaret Meek Spencer was a valued consultant throughout the project.
