We are developing new ways to meet teachers’ writing professional development needs. Talk to us about your ideas of how we can help. We are already offering the following:
- Team Clinics: Have you carried out the diagnosis but are unsure about how to really develop aspects of the writing programme such as building sentence structure competence, developing language features, organizing for narrative, or generating writing ideas? Let us help with a 90 minute team meeting targeting your particular age level and needs.
- Staff Meetings or Teacher Only Days: As a whole staff we can help you develop your planning for writing success, covering such aspects as: how to set up a sustainable class writing programme, the importance of redrafting, how to give timely and valuable feedback, what makes a great narrative, and how to avoid the text-type trap!
- One on One: meeting one on one with teachers to discuss particular needs, review samples of children’s work and offer ideas for feedback and development.
- Learn to do what you teach: We can give teachers the experience of a writing workshop, from developing ideas through to redrafting. Teachers will learn more about the process, the challenges and the joys of writing as they work on their own creation.
