Professional Development Session: Explicitly Teaching Writing
In this session we will look at how we as teachers can explicitly teach children to write. We will look at the importance of building oral language to enable students to write. We will look at nine major text types and then focus on the Explanation and Exposition text types. This will be a practical session where we will orally construct and write texts together. The session length is 1 hour and 30 minutes.
