Practical Strategies to Improve Writing Skills
For: English leaders, phase leaders, middle and senior leaders
In an age of technology, there is concern that children will overlook the importance of writing skills. This course will enable you to add to your writing skills teaching toolkit as you will encounter activities and suggestions which are supported by robust research with regards to their effectiveness.
You will have opportunities to share your own success stories with colleagues and exchange ideas as well as specifically consider reluctant or struggling writers.
Is writing an area for development on your improvement plan? Then this is for you. Try and send a couple of staff if you can, then they can support other teachers back in school through delivering CPDF and support.
