The Art of Teaching Writing with Gail Loane

The Child: the heart of the matter

"Many NZ schools are struggling to have common understandings and practices around the teaching of writing – evident in student results, teacher knowledge, teacher practice and the fact that the issue is still a national focus. I believe that we are making too hard a job of it and that we need to focus firmly on the phrase that ERO are currently using:
The Child: the heart of the matter"

This workshop will explore the ‘art of teaching writing’ through discussion around:

1. Our beliefs about teaching writing and how they drive what we do

2. The frequent mismatch often evident between the needs of our learners and what we provide – what makes a match?

3. How we can plan to bring relevance and authenticity to the writing programme for all our learners

4. A lesson design which caters for all learners
