There are three strands in the renewed Framework for Secondary English within Teaching for writing. These are:

  • Composition – generating ideas, planning and drafting
  • Composition – shaping and constructing language for expression and effect
  • Conventions – drawing on conventions and structures.

These strands are further subdivided and offer opportunities for engagement with the language strand, Exploring and analysing language.

The Teaching for Writing materials are available to download.
