Leading Development of Writing in your School

Gail Loane

Following on from Gail’s highly successful full day course in September 2015, Gail will be returning to Nelson in February with a focus on literacy leadership and planning for writing.

This day will be suitable for literacy leaders and literacy teams.


This workshop will explore:

  • The roles of leaders in a school’s journey to improve writing results;

  • Current issues around the teaching of writing in our schools;

  • What we believe are the keys to the effective learning and teaching of writing;

  • Assessment - what our data is telling us to notice and change;

  • An effective writing programme/lesson-  planning for the teaching of writing;

  • Leading and supporting teachers to reflect and make changes to practice, becoming more effective teachers;

  • School systems that will enhance and sustain development;

  • Communication - the key to a successful team.
