This full day workshop is for practitioners who wish to extend and focus their use of Talk for Writing through structured planning. The training will look at using the Talk for Writing process in an effective planning model that guarantees a positive impact on writing standards. This will involve looking at yearly, termly and unit planning; linking units together; and creating the connection between toolkits and grammar teaching. Delegates will be able to adapt the model for their settings and will have the opportunity to begin planning a unit during the course of the day.
Prior attendance at a two-day Talk for Writing workshop is a pre-requisite for this workshop
