This online professional learning provides teachers with an opportunity to develop knowledge of current theoretical perspectives on writing processes and the explicit teaching of writing. It has been developed in conjunction with Dr Tessa Daffern, who examined the teaching and learning of spelling and writing in her PhD.
Participants will reflect on current evidence-based approaches to teaching writing, explore processes of meaning-making through writing, and consider conditions that support learning to write.
