Are the Seven Steps suitable for my year level?

The Seven Steps program was designed by an author for real-life writing, and was originally aimed at adults. So the Seven Steps are practical for anyone looking to write better – whether they are four or 100!

Our training and resources are designed to enable teachers to understand the theory through rapid-fire activities and examples that they can take back to their classroom the next day. We have resources that can be used with pre-writers, secondary students and all ages in between.

How do we use Seven Steps with other writing programs?

Unlike many other programs, Seven Steps focuses on the authorial, big picture skills of planning and drafting a text. We focus on the creative, fun side of writing in a structured way that teaches students critical thinking strategies about writing: what to say, how to say it, when to make certain decisions, and how to engage and hold a reader’s attention.

You can slip the short, fun Seven Steps activities into your weekly writing program, or you can use it with complementary programs that focus on other aspects of literacy, such as sentence structure, grammar and spelling.

There’s no limit to how you can fit the Seven Steps theory and lessons into everyday classes, whether you use Seven Steps as your sole writing program or it’s just one in your arsenal of writing tools.

Does Seven Steps align with the Australian or State Curriculum?

Our focus at Seven Steps is on the creation of great writing. Every education jurisdiction in Australia considers writing extremely important, and all educators want students to become the best communicators they can be.

Each state and territory expects its students to write narrative, persuasive and informative texts, to get plenty of practice, and to learn to communicate in written, verbal and visual means. The Seven Steps strongly support these aims, with a focus on students practising the component steps of writing in an accessible way – sometimes in words, sometimes in verbal and visual language.
