This one day workshop develops teachers’ capacity to scaffold and engage students in the writing process, to engage all learners, to build stamina, and to maximise their performance as writers. We will include word work and vocabulary learning as a cornerstone of academic writing development for expository and other non-fiction text types. Student writing samples will be shared and discussed.
This is a hands-on workshop with activities, techniques and frameworks to show teachers how practical and simple it is to explicitly teach a number of powerful writing strategies that address the writing demands found in the Australian curriculum.
This workshop is TQI approved for 5 hours.
