Teacher Hub Members Update – September 2023
It’s hard to believe it’s already September! This month we’re focusing on Seven Steps in the real world. We have just created a new collection of fun, bite-sized interviews with professional writers about how they use Seven Steps techniques in their work. We’ve also got fresh new resources and a great tip from Suzanne on how to customise and reuse our Classroom PowerPoints.
Keep the buzz of Book Week alive with some virtual author visits and show students the real-world application of the techniques they are learning.
Hear from the experts themselves about how they apply Seven Steps concepts in their writing, from brainstorming and planning to crafting powerful conclusions that leave a lasting impact.
Watch the videos and then use the accompanying discussion questions and follow-on activities to explore the expert insights in more detail.

Football Fever is here to stay! Be wowed by these fantastic student samples from the writing superstars at Our Lady of Pines in Victoria. Seven Steps presenter Deb Larmer used the Matildas’ infamous penalty shoot-out against France to inspire her students to write these nail-biting tension scenes.
Check out this sample from Nicholas in Year 3 and download the resource for more samples and instructions on how to run the activity in your classroom.
Did you know? All our Classroom PowerPoints are now editable. This means that you can easily adapt and reuse them year after year by changing the topic, stimulus or outcome. Use the additional topic suggestions at the end of each PowerPoint or come up with your own to suit your students.
For example, you could reuse the Narrative Fast Starts PowerPoint by changing the topics or challenging students to use a different technique for each Sizzling Start.
We also have a blank PowerPoint template that can be used to create your own lessons following the Gradual Release Model – I do, We do, You do used in our Classroom PowerPoint series.
