    Event description

    This online workshop across two consecutive days with Sharon and Phil Callen is for motivated Years 2-6 teachers and leaders of literacy who want to equip themselves with the skills to enrich the teaching of writing through using quality children’s literature and a workshop model (Mini Lesson, Independent Practice, Share/Reflection). Learn how to powerfully develop students as self-motivated, self-directed and self-regulated writers.

    These two online workshops across two consecutive days with Sharon and Phil Callen are for motivated Years 2-6 teachers and leaders of literacy who want to equip themselves with the skills to use quality children's literature and a workshop model to develop students as self-motivated, self-directed and self-regulated writers.

    WHY?
    • As teachers we can struggle with helping young writers to develop their knowledge and expertise of the writing process through meaningful writing
    • We want to do less 'one off' activities that do little to empower them
    • We struggle to differentiate for our young writers so that they all have an entry point for their writing
    • We often don't have high quality literature on hand for students to be inspired by, and from which they can develop their own writing 
    • We find it hard to use the curriculum in effective ways that connect with our students
    HOW?

    This workshops address the struggles we have by: 

    • Introducing you to the Reading Like a Writer framework, a framework which enables writers to be active in noticing, exploring and understanding how good writers write
    • Showing effective ways of accessing and using quality children's literature as outstanding models for students' writing
    • Going through the process as if you were a student in my class, so that you can actually experience what it is, and thereby consider how you can implement and adjust it
    • Taking you through the practicalities: how to get started, how to fit it all in, how to keep track of learning 
    • Showing how to use Quick Writes in new powerful ways
    • How to cover the curriculum in easy to understand ways
    • Showing how the  Reading Like a Writer framework supports writers across all aspects of writing for all text types, across ages
