Improving Pupils’ Writing with Effective, Engaging Revision and Editing (Morning 9am – 12pm)

Course date: 28th Feb 2024
A half-day online course to refresh the teaching of writing.

It is important to complete the writing process by helping pupils to return to their first drafts to improve the quality of their language and to check the accuracy of their writing. When pupils can independently craft their writing and assess their spelling and punctuation, they become more competent and effective writers.

This course will help you encourage pupils to act as real writers in your classroom.

ENGLISH AND LITERACY - Stephanie Vaughan has been working in education for over 25 years and is an experienced classroom practitioner, who understands the challenges teachers face providing a relevant and purposeful curriculum. She was, until recently, the Literacy Lead Advisor for Swansea; therefore, she has extensive experience of providing training and in-school support for primary teachers in English and whole school literacy. In addition, extensive pupil data from schools across Swansea proves that her training definitely raises standards. Stephanie Vaughan is the author of The Eight Reading Behaviours and The Reading Journey, a new and comprehensive innovative resource that teaches pupils to read with enjoyment and purpose. She has also developed many of her own literacy strategies, such as The Writing Wheel and accompanying activities that help pupils to learn the steps in the writing process. She has written detailed progression models for aspects of reading and writing that help teachers to unpick the LNF. A belief that pupils need to understand how to read and write independently underpins her work and she offers literacy lessons that are enjoyable, interactive, and skill-centred. Stephanie’s training provides teachers with practical, easily implemented, and engaging solutions to literacy problems, and she provides schools with extensive and varied resources, which, according to feedback, have proved extremely popular with teachers and pupils.
