This workshop will provide teachers and parents with the necessary tools to “unpack” the informative/persuasive essay format (for students in years 7, 8 & 9) and the analytical essay format (for years 10, 11 & 12) in a simple and logical manner so that they can instruct students who may be experiencing problems with the writing process. A framework for constructing each type of essay will be outlined and strategies for developing as well as organising the contents of each type will be explained.

The workshop will be a practical session where participants can contribute their own ideas and discuss written expression difficulties experienced by the children they are teaching. It is also very beneficial to parents of students who will be attending the student essay writing workshops, giving parents an opportunity to experience the theory underpinning the process. A light snack is provided at this session.

Presenter: Jenny Baker is a speech pathologist who works at Fremantle Speech Pathology Services. She works exclusively with children and young adults who experience reading, writing and spelling difficulties. She has a passionate interest in devising explicit teaching tools to explain the rules and regulations governing the English language system so that children can “crack the code” no matter what level of text they are expected to deal with.
