Following on from Gail’s highly popular full day course in September 2015, Gail will be returning to Nelson in August 2017 with a focus on using 'The Helping Circle’ as a demonstration of community – a place for sharing writing and for responding to the writing of others.
This day will be suitable for all teachers of literacy, and literacy teams.
This day workshop will explore some key ideas:
‘The Helping Circle’ as a demonstration of community – a place for sharing writing and for responding to the writing of others
the (draft) writing book as a record of progress
leading the learning – moment by moment teaching decisions
the integration of writing across the curriculum
developing independence in our community of writers
how all writers, including boys, can be engaged in writing
* Early bird bookings close Friday 5th May (end of 1st week of Term 2)
