- To explore best practice in writing as informed by current research
- To explore how to support teachers to explicitly teach the different phases of the writing cycle in their subject disciplines
- To explore how to devise a whole-school writing strategy
- To explore a robust approach to curriculum planning to ensure writing skills progress through the curriculum

Are you looking to develop the systemic teaching of writing across your subject discipline? Are you looking to develop a writing strategy to improve academic outcomes across the curriculum?

Writing is a complex composite skill that comprises a myriad of components. This course explores how to demystify the process of writing with a focus on the generic teaching of the different stages of the writing process from planning to composition, drafting and editing, as well as the importance of explicitly teaching the nuances of subject specific writing.

This course is suitable for teachers who wish to refine their practice in the explicit teaching of writing as well as those teachers across the curriculum who have responsibility for developing a whole school writing strategy and wish to explore how to improve their long-term approach. Time will be allocated for delegates to reflect on their school's writing strategy and to share good practice.
