This workshop will present ideas for an integrated literacy approach to teaching poetry that provides a high degree of support for ‘at risk’ writers. The workshop references a project in which Sheena and Louise worked with a group of Year 3-7 ‘at risk’ writers and their teachers. The aims of the project were to improve students’ confidence and attitudes towards writing and in turn improve writing outcomes. Examples of students’ work and poetry frameworks will be shared and discussed.
