This workshop, designed specifically for school leaders, will focus on the processes that need to be initiated, developed and maintained in order to successfully introduce the Talk for Writing approach.
The material for the workshop has been refined through discussion with successful Principals and leading literacy teachers of schools who have used the approach to significantly raise attainment across all subject areas. The workshop will pay particular attention to the factors that make a difference to schools operating in areas of disadvantage. Participants will have the opportunity to hear from Matt Jarman, the Principal of Yanchep Beach Primary School. This rapidly growing school in Perth’s northern suburbs has successfully introduced Talk for Writing across all year levels, and has seen strong improvement as a result.
The focus of this workshop will be on a range of key strategies used in Talk for Writing, all of which correspond to important areas of learning embedded in the Australian curriculum.
