Susie is a Primary and Secondary trained teacher, specialising in English and Social Sciences. She has worked in schools in both England and Australia, assisting to guide the implementation of Talk for Writing. Susie now works as a literacy specialist at DSF, providing training, consultation and mentoring to teachers, other professionals and schools in Talk for Writing. Susie is passionate about the TfW approach after seeing the incredible achievements from students in her own classroom and the impact it has on children’s reading and writing progress at all levels.
This two-day workshop offers teachers an overview of the T4W approach and provides opportunities for hands-on participation in the steps of this exceptionally effective instructional approach.
It includes planning, both for a unit of work, based on instructional needs of the student and at a whole-school level; exploring the ‘Three I’s’ which are the basis of the Talk for Writing approach and providing effective feedback, accurate assessment and the development of grammatical skills.
