The SSTUWA, in partnership with TLN in Melbourne, are pleased to offer this online learning opportunity.
In this session, the presenter, an experienced primary teacher and leader will present ideas that you can use to promote engagement with writing tasks for students who are reluctant or struggling writers. The strategies covered will include understanding the issue for the child as well as techniques to engage students in creative writing, persuasive writing, formal writing, such as book reviews, and writing for a specific purpose. The presenter will share ideas that they have used to engage the reluctant writer. Participants will also be encouraged to share ideas, leading to a pool of ideas that each teacher they can adapt for the struggling writers in their classroom. If you have exhausted your own toolkit of ideas, come along and engage with some new ideas and resources. The focus will be upper primary.
The event will be one hour in duration and consist of live delivery of content at the specified time by a presenter and a host. You will also have an opportunity to interact with other participants and engage with the presenter online. Completing this course will contribute to one hour of professional learning and a certificate will be provided at the end of the session.
