What Teachers Say
“I knew that I loved the Seven Steps program from my first professional development, but I never expected my students to love it so much… They all use the same dialogue and say to me, ‘Miss Brien, what do you think of my Exciting Ending, should I put some Six Senses in it?’ It does not matter which text type I ask them to write, I can SEE evidence of Seven Steps to Writing Success all the way through it. It WORKS, the kids LISTEN, and EVERY STUDENT demonstrates improvement.” – Carly Brien, Henry Kendall High School.
“The Seven Step Program has impressed many teachers, showing great results and student engagement, so due to this, it sits prominently within out new writing policy. The program, and your feedback really has inspired and given me a new lease on my teaching life. Sometimes, when you have been working in the same field for a long time you need to feel the fire in your belly again, and that is what The Seven Steps to Writing Success has done for me.” – Mellisa Manuel, Warragul North Primary School.
