Enjoy teaching writing with confidence

Become a Seven Steps member

What if you could create a writing classroom
full of fun, enthusiasm and learning?

Where students of all abilities can experience success.
Where even the most stubbornly reluctant are excited to write.
Where curiosity, ideas and creativity thrive.

 

Let’s face it. Teaching writing can be hard.

Especially when …

Your class needs varying levels of differentiation …

You lack confidence in your own writing abilities …

You’re struggling to engage all students consistently …

There’s pressure to address assessment criteria …

You’re strapped for time in a crowded curriculum.

It’s easy to feel overwhelmed.

The Seven Steps program focuses on the most high-impact writing skills and breaks them down into manageable chunks.

It gives you a clear and realistic plan to help you teach those skills.

Best of all? Seven Steps is easy to learn and teach. The learning is flexible and designed to be fun, collaborative and achievable.

As little as 20 minutes a day can have a measurable impact in your classroom.

Seven Steps is a change-agent for teaching writing. I want all students to experience the emotional wellbeing of not feeling threatened by writing tasks but becoming capable and creative writers.

FAQs

How much time does it take to see results?

Seven Steps is a self-paced implementation program, which means you can spend as much or as little time as your schedule allows. However, for best results, we recommend spending the following amount of time on each Step:

  • 20–40 minutes per day
  • 4 or 5 days a week
  • 2 to 4 weeks.

Can I trial it first?

Yes! You can get full access to the Step 2: Sizzling Starts modules by signing up for our free Starter account. It’s a quick and easy way to see the impact Seven Steps has on engagement and writing skills.

Is this for all teachers or just graduates?

Seven Steps works for everyone: teachers who are just starting out, veteran teachers who have seen it all, teachers who prefer maths and science, and teachers who lack confidence in their ability to teach writing.

This sounds great but a new program feels overwhelming.

We know you’ve already got too much on your plate! This isn’t another pool of literacy resources you have to waste hours combing through to find what works. You’re going to follow a simple, actionable, proven plan. So you’ll know exactly what to do (and how to do it). It’s the opposite of overwhelming.

I have a ‘tricky’ class, is this still for me?

The Seven Steps approach makes writing fun and achievable for every student. Teachers are often amazed that it caters to such a diversity of needs, ages and learners, including EAL/D students, gifted, ASD and ADHD students, and even reluctant boys.

I’m a Literacy Leader, can I use this with my team?

Yes! Seven Steps is perfect for any school leader looking to build a vibrant writing culture, boost teacher confidence, increase engagement and improve writing results. Our implementation action plans make it easy to roll the program out within teams and across whole schools. Introduce each Step by watching the short training video together before teachers roll it out in the classroom using the resources in the modules. Then, allocate time in staff meetings to share student samples and writing data, and reflect on the successes and challenges.

I’m already trained in the Seven Steps, do I need this?

If you want a Step-by-Step implementation guide for rolling out the program in your classroom, along with an almost endless supply of curriculum-aligned resources to keep the learning fresh, PLUS refresher training videos you can replay on demand … then, yes – this is most definitely for you.

Is this an evidence-based program?

The Seven Steps is based on best-practice pedagogy and supported by years of educational research. The program aligns well with many teaching approaches, including explicit instruction, inquiry learning and the science of learning. 

Learn more about our evidence-based approach.

Does Seven Steps align with the curriculum?

Yes, Seven Steps resources are aligned to both the Australian Curriculum: English and the NSW English Syllabus.
