The Talk for Writing
approach is one that adjusts and changes based on new research and experiences. Additionally, the Talk for Writing
process is adapted in certain important ways when working with the youngest students in our schools. This workshop is aimed at teachers of Kindergarten and Pre-Primary who have completed the two-day Talk for Writing workshop
, but would like to examine how the process is best used in their setting – or for teachers who have completed the Early Years
workshop, but would like to review and refresh their skills and knowledge of the process. The entire ‘Three I’s’ process will be examined, with reference to teaching both fiction and non-fiction language expression and early writing skills. This online workshop will also make reference to how elements of the process could be adapted for remote instruction. (Please note: for teachers in Years 1 and 2, the Talk for Writing: Review
workshop is recommended.)

DSF Literacy Services has a ‘no refund’ policy. The exception would be when a Professional Learning Course had to be cancelled by the Foundation. All other requests for cancellation will be invited to re-register for another session. Late cancellation (less than 48 business hrs) will necessitate the Foundation deducting an administration fee of $25.00 and transferring the balance to another Professional Learning Course.
