The Writing Workshop consists of 5 Units:
* Oral Language
* Persuasive Writing
* Narrative Writing
In this workshop participants will learn strategies for effectively teaching the Writing Persuasively and Writing Creatively courses. Good oral language skills underpin good writing. Consequently, it is important that teachers have a good understanding of how to help students develop these skills. Editing is an important component of the writing process, but one that many students find difficult, so techniques for helping students develop this skill are also covered. Although the material is primarily for students experiencing difficulty in this area, it is likely that all students could benefit from the systematic and structured approach used in the program.
