This online workshop (4 x 3 hour sessions) offers teachers an overview of the Talk for Writing approach 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 for both fiction and non-fiction and covers:

  • Planning, both for a unit of work, based on instructional needs of students, and at a whole-school level;
  • The “Three I’s” – Imitation, Innovation and Independent Application – which are the basis of the Talk for Writing approach and which allow students to move from dependence to independence in their writing in a systematic, scaffolded way;
  • Providing effective feedback to students in order to promote skill development;
  • Accurate assessment of writing, in order to track student progress and guide teaching goals; and
  • Development of grammatical skills, with a focus on functional application of grammar in writing, through ‘warm-up’ games selected to meet specific instructional needs of students.

This workshop is suitable for primary school teachers.
