In this practical workshop, Sheena and Louise will review the components of a balanced and engaging writing program at emergent, early and fluent levels. They will introduce a suggested lesson sequence, which aims to motivate and scaffold writers, allowing time for self and partner reflection. Teachers will be introduced to a range of mini-lesson ideas and generic ‘Quick Write’ activities that can be used for different writing purposes across a range of levels.

 

Aims for the workshop: 

  • To introduce the key principles of an effective writing programme
