Introducing the video set

 

In this section, I present videos and teacher notes for a range of writing lessons. There are two free samples, however for the others you will need to have a membership subscription to access these video lessons or to access the Murray Talks videos.

These tools – developed around a long-term goal of students becoming motivated and independent writers who are able to communicate confidently, proficiently and with impact according to the purpose for writing and the and the intended audience – are based on a belief that teachers can make a difference for all students, regardless of their level of ability.

More video lessons are being added regularly. To find out how you can access them, please click here.
