Talk for Writing: 2 Day Introductory Workshop
This introductory workshop offers teachers an overview and provides opportunities for hands-on participation in the steps of this exceptionally effective instructional approach.
The workshop addresses the use of Talk for Writing in fiction and covers:
- The three-stage pedagogy – Imitation, Innovation and Independent Application/Invention – which are the basis of the Talk for Writing approach, and allows students to move from dependence to independence in a systematic, scaffolded way;
- Development of sentence and grammatical skills, with a focus on functional application of grammar in context, through explicit scaffolds selected to meet specific instructional needs of students;
- Providing effective feedback to students in order to promote skill development;
- Formative assessment of writing, in order to track student progress and guide teaching goals; and
- Planning a unit of work, based on the instructional needs of students and the curriculum/ progression guide.
Participants will leave this introductory 2-Day workshop having planned for a unit to implement immediately.
