Secondary - Talk for Writing

  • Talk for Writing is an engaging teaching framework, based on the principles of formative assessment and interactive learning.
  • It provides a flexible process for developing understanding and expression, moving from imitation to innovation to independent application.

In English, it provides a step-by-step approach to creating confident, creative speakers, thinkers, readers and writers.

In other subjects across the curriculum, it provides a flexible framework that enables all students to develop the tune of each subject area and co-construct understanding so that they can structure their ideas and express themselves coherently.

In the session we will explore the four underpinning principals:

  • Providing a model
  • Facilitating oral rehearsal
  • Making the learning visible
  • Co-construct the learning
  • Facilitator
  • Venue & Travel Information
