Real Schools, Getting Real Results
‘I know you must have many success stories, but I am just so overjoyed with the outcomes and the knowledge my students are showing due to the introduction of your Seven Steps to Writing Success. It is amazing to see students so engaged in their writing and able to give their peers sound advice during peer conferences. We are now speaking the same language and that has a huge impact.
The support this program offers is just outstanding, I just wish that I had discovered it years ago. You never stop learning, and I think that’s what I love most about teaching.
By the way, I love the new Informative text support material.
Thank you for inspiring me to be a better teacher.’
– Mellisa Manuel, Warragul North Primary School
‘Our Writing result in Year 9 is against the national trend which showed a 1.7% drop from 2014 to 2015, where our result went up by 11.4%. I can guarantee our writing success was due to students being exposed to the Seven Steps of Writing Success. Students love it.’
– Valissa, STLaN Literacy Coach
‘Students and teachers are very positive about the journey so far. Lots of lovely stories about reluctant writers feeling very comfortable and confident. The teachers all seem really pleased with the program and the student work.’
– Lindy Montague-Pope, Head of Curriculum

‘I just wanted to drop you a quick line and let you know that my kids and I have been making story graphs (using pictures instead of words) from well-known stories for the past week now and they love it! We had some kids not able to attend school last week because we had so much rain and they even did their own graphs at home!
Each day we start with 20 minutes of Seven Steps (which often turns into at least half an hour!) and I am fighting to start other work because they want to talk about every book they’ve ever read and every movie they’ve ever seen! Even when we read on the carpet now they stop me during stories and tell me who the main characters are, what the problem is and what the exciting bit is to solve the problem!
Thanks so much for helping motivate me to motivate my kids to be interested in the makeup of stories. I can’t wait to start making story graphs using our own characters next week!’
– Amanda Lindeman, P-3 Teacher, Kilcummin State School
Students Making Massive Change
Year 7 student samples after just 6 weeks
Carly, a Year 7 teacher at a NSW High School in Gosford, integrated the Seven Steps into a Project Based Learning environment in her low performing classroom. These before and after unedited samples are the result of just 6 weeks of the Seven Steps.
Teachers & Students Celebrating Their Work
‘Our school chose to implement Seven Steps to Writing Success at the beginning of 2016… Students were engaged and excited about lessons – they would see me in the playground and ask when their next Seven Steps lesson was. One student saw me at a social gathering and asked if I liked his Sizzling Start from class that week. Teachers used the examples of student work that I shared on the win boards and in the staff meetings as exemplars in their own classrooms.’
– Leigh Tankey, Head of Curriculum, Agnes Water State School.
