What does good writing look like?

Most students know what this looks like, but many struggle to achieve it. How do we develop confident writers? In every subject, students will be faced with writing reports. Across their academic careers, strong report writing skills are essential; so expositional writing is the primary focus of the strategies presented; however, a number of the tools provides are valuable in creative writing too. The strategies examined are applicable for all age levels.

We will look at the power of using exemplars; at strong paragraph structures and at useful scaffolds for building writing confidence. A strong paragraph structure is a winning formula that once learned will be a key factor in helping students pass exams later in their schooling.

I will cover the use of the 6+1 rubric for writing; and how to develop our own rubrics as tools for self / peer and teacher assessment.  Attendees will be provided with practical hands-on activities to explore the concepts covered; in this activity we will look at moderation of student work.

I hope to complete the session by providing a tool for support of both formal and creative writing. Ultimately I hope to provide my attendees with practical skills and resurces for developing confident writers.
