Talk for Writing

This two day face-to-face professional development workshop offers an overview of the Talk for Writing approach and provides opportunities for hands-on participation in this exceptionally effective instructional approach for teaching written expression.

The workshop addresses the use of Talk for Writing for both fiction and non-fiction and covers:

  • Planning: based on the instructional needs of the students at either a unit or whole-school level
  • The ‘Three I’s’ – Imitation, Innovation and Independent Application – the fundamentals of the Talk for Writing approach; by guiding students in a systematic, scaffolded way they develop their writing from dependence to independence
  • Student skill development as promoted through effective feedback
  • How the accurate assessment of writing can assist in tracking student progress and guiding teaching goals
  • The development of grammatical skills, with a focus on the functional application of grammar in writing through ‘warm-up’ games selected to meet the specific instructional needs of students
