With an introduction to shared writing, discussion will focus around how to be an effective teacher who makes writing time meaningful, and each lesson count.

  • Be familiar with the three key documents, as mentioned above;

  • Looked at the Literacy Learning Progressions for each level;

  • Have some practical ideas that can be implemented right away.
