How to use the writing topics

Each of the six topics in this book is a learning topic that builds to a writing outcome. Each topic is divided into five sessions, from introducing the topic to your class to completing the writing assignment at the end.The generic structure of the sessions and the rationale underpinning them are outlined later in this chapter in the section ‘What is a session?’Each topic is intended as an imaginary world that your class will enter and inhabit for the duration.The learning that they undergo within the topic will be a collaborative experience that also gives them a private bank of first-hand expertise to draw upon for the final writing outcome.
