This two day workshop (run over two weeks – Day 2 on Friday 11th August) 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 Invention – 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. We also offer a Talk for Writing Early Years workshop for Kindergarten and Pre-Primary teachers.

Presenter: Emily Jackson, Speech Pathologist and Talk for Writing trainer.
Emily has a background in speech pathology and is passionate about supporting the provision of evidence-based literacy practices in schools. She has been involved in Talk for Writing for a number of years, and was part of the development of DSF’s current Talk for Writing training course. She is an experienced trainer and works with schools on an ongoing basis to implement and embed Talk for Writing into their everyday teaching practice. Emily is also experienced in demonstrating the use of Talk for Writing in the classroom across the primary school years, and in delivering the approach in a remedial setting.
