Getting our students to engage in writing, write well and secure high marks (Secondary)

Who is this programme for?
For teachers of any subject who seek strategies to help students plan and structure their writing, as well as close the vocabulary gap.

Delegates will leave with practical strategies to help students plan and structure their writing, as well as develop subject specific vocabulary and close the vocabulary gap. The session will explore how Pie Corbett’s “Talk for Writing” ideas can be applied in secondary school. The following will be explored during the session;

  • What are the barriers to students’ writing?
  • How can we help students structure their writing?
  • How do we use high quality models effectively?
  • How can we “warm up the words” for writing and help close the vocabulary gap?
  • How can we include creative and challenging writing activities in our schemes of work?
