Talk for Writing Courses

NEW: Talk for Writing – An Introduction to Non-Fiction Writing

Course overview:
This training day will focus on practical strategies for developing children as non-fiction writers. We will look at the link between learning model texts, drawing on quality literature and developing the craft of writing. The training will explore how to help children deepen their understanding of what makes good writing, building up a store of patterns and writing techniques. We’ll visit classrooms to see TFW in action as well as looking at film clips of shared writing to contextualise elements of the training.
