DSF is offering a series of ‘small-group’ sessions throughout Term Two 2019 designed to improve the writing skills of students in years 5 and 6. These 8 sessions utilising the ‘Talk for Writing’ approach, will be run after school on Tuesdays over an 8-week period.
Talk for Writing is a unique process that uses spoken activities to develop writing skills. Quality writing is created by first expanding and developing students’ oral language skills and then teaching the necessary steps for exceptional sentence, paragraph and text construction.
Talk for Writing has the potential to dramatically improve students’ writing. The approach also offers students with learning and language difficulties an opportunity to develop stronger writing skills. Feedback from students indicates that they find Talk for Writing ‘fun, engaging and motivating.’
