Transforming poor writers into outstanding writers

Developing students’ non-fiction writing skills is critical if they are to demonstrate their knowledge and understanding of subjects across the curriculum. In order to be successful, students need to tune in to the language of non-fiction, and the Talk for Writing approach is ideal for this purpose. This workshop will extend teachers’ use of Talk for Writing to develop non-fiction writing skills. The key language and structural features of the six non-fiction text types will be explored, providing participants with a range of strategies, activities and tips that they can apply in their practice.

Please note: prior attendance at the two-day Talk for Writing workshop is a pre-requisite for attendees.

Presenter: Peta Collins (Primary and Secondary Trainer)
Peta is an educational and developmental psychologist. She was first introduced to Talk for Writing when attending the conferences presented by Pie Corbett during his visit to Perth, and was impressed by the way the approach is able to address the learning needs of all students: from students at educational risk, through to students requiring educational extension and challenge. She has been closely involved in the development of DSF’s Talk for Writing workshops, at both primary and secondary level, and has benefitted from the invaluable support and expertise of Dean Thompson and Maria Richards during their visits to Australia. Peta also uses Talk for Writing, at primary and secondary level, in individual and small-group tuition with students who are experiencing literacy learning difficulties.
