Getting your learners to write just got easier!

Oxford University Press South Africa has just partnered with Writing Legends, a new digital program that revolutionises the teaching and learning of writing in Grades 3 to 7. By blending the best of technology with captivating writing prompts and modelling, the program dramatically improves teaching and learning by inspiring learners to participate within a motivated community of passionate writers.

As part of their assistance to schools, Oxford is providing the program completely free of charge through to 31 July 2020.

Learners and teachers have access, from wherever they are, to hundreds of writing activities supported by exemplars, writing checklists and vocabulary assistance. Teachers may set specific activities for individual learners, groups of learners or the whole class, and are also able to see how long learners spend on activities and then provide individual feedback.
