Explicitly Teaching Writing with Stephen Graham - Narrative Text Type
DATE: Tuesday, 8 February 2022
TIME: 7pm to 8.30pm
VENUE: Zoom Webinar
In this series of Webinars we will examine how to explicitly and systematically teach children to write. We will look at the major text types that are constantly used in the curriculum. Teachers will be shown how to break down the teaching of writing into small and manageable chunks and then link this directly to the development of oral language. We will develop a metalanguage for the teaching of writing that can then be carried across to a whole school approach and be represented in a scope and sequence of writing. We will look at the assessment of writing using a success criteria that will show teachers how to build their teaching/learning program in writing.
