Guiding Writers

Much of the content for this workshop has been drawn from our popular full day writing workshop.

Overview

Teaching for assured success is paramount to improving students’ writing and developing self monitoring behaviours. Teachers of writing must offer a balance of instruction in order to design quality texts as well as to improve students’ use of writing conventions such as spelling, punctuation, capitalization, paragraph breaks, grammar and usage.

Students’ overall success in writing is dependent on a number of factors. These are:

  • identifying the audience
  • identifying the purpose (text type)
  • recognising and applying the traits of good writing

Participant's will be shown:

  • the traits of good writing
  • a selection of mini lesson ideas to improve students’ abilities to design literary and non literary texts
  • a framework for managing the writing program
  • the importance of using students’ writing samples to inform future planning

You will receive:

  • workshop notes
  • a classroom resource
  • afternoon tea on arrival
