About this event
The latest SSLN survey showed a widening of the attainment gap in writing at P4, and even more so at S2.
In this seminar, literacy specialist and author Sue Palmer draws on experience spanning four decades to offer valuable insights and practical ideas on how to inspire, motivate, and integrate writing into teaching across the curriculum.
- Motivate reluctant writers, develop children's appreciation for written language patterns, and improve organisational and thinking skills to support writing
- Techniques for quick bursts of word and sentence level teaching/revision
- A simple model for integrating writing into teaching across the cirriculum
