Many teachers love the Talk for Writing approach but do not find it easy to organise all of Pie’s brilliant ideas into a unit of work. It is a challenge! I have been following the TfW approach for many years, and I have spoken at a few of Pie’s national conferences. Over the years, I have organised Pie’s ideas into a three week planning grid. The planning frame attached is not supposed to be prescriptive; it is designed to ‘hold your hand’ while you put a unit together. It is invaluable for teachers new to this approach, but even old-timers like me find the prompts helpful. This planner has been taken on in many schools and you may adapt it for your own use.
This work is designed to support teachers using the TfW approach.
It's good to leave some feedback.

Really helpful with the notes in each section as reminders - I was able to adapt it well to fit in with my school's planning - thanks!
Thanks - I am pleased you have adapted the planner. It is intended as a prompt and not a straight-jacket! Every TfW unit is unique.
