My granddaughter started school this year and loves Reading Eggs so I’m very pleased to be associated with 3P Learning and their series of Australia wide teacher workshops.

Powerful Writing Strategies

Practical and Simple Ideas to Engage, Build Stamina and Maximise Student Writers

June 15th Canberra

August 25th Adelaide

This one day workshop develops teachers’ capacity to scaffold and engage students in the writing process, to engage all learners, to build stamina, and to maximise their performance as writers. We will include word work and vocabulary learning as a cornerstone of academic writing development for expository and other non-fiction text types. Student writing samples will be shared and discussed.

This is a hands-on workshop with activities, techniques and frameworks to show teachers how practical and simple it is to explicitly teach a number of powerful writing strategies that address the writing demands found in the Australian curriculum.  Suitable for mid primary to mid secondary level educators.
