Thanks for visiting Five Lessons Away.

This is the writing improvement program you asked for. 

Hi, my name is Brad Kelly. I have taught over 1,000 teachers to teach writing more effectively – and with 20 years experience in the classroom and over half a million published words under my belt, I have spent the last seven years trying to crack the code to help teachers make real and lasting change in their classroom. Starting tomorrow. 

After all, most writing improvement programs start with loads of promises and run out of petrol really fast. 

Five Lessons Away is a professional learning program that you can master in five lessons. Build these teaching, thinking and writing habits into your classroom and watch your students write with greater clarity, control and craft! 

See you inside.

Does an overemphasis on paragraph structure really hurt student writing outcomes? You bet! Learn about another type of structure that eats paragraphs for breakfast. 

Why is the writing game won or lost at vocabulary? Come and find out how to spot thinking rather than mark writing. 

Is evidence selection really the superpower of writing? Yes! 

Every time I read something of yours, you keep talking about the difference between writing and teaching writing. That’s splitting hairs right? Nope. It’s the biggest game changer in the classroom!
