:: Write Away Together ::
Outline
Looking for an effective intervention to improve writing that relies upon a more robust partnership approach between teacher and TA and between TA and pupils? 'Write away together' is a Fischer Family Trust guided writing or an intervention programme focused on feedback and improvement. It can be both applicable to all pupils, or used as a one-to-one intervention targeting pupils who need more intense structured support. One of the top seven strategies identified by the Sutton Trust to raise attainment of disadvantaged and vulnerable learners includes a focus on the pupil’s ability to self- manage their own learning. A key feature of the intervention focuses on how to change pupils’ writing behaviour so that the skills of proof-reading and editing become increasingly embedded. The course is intended for a TA to attend along with their SENCO or lead teacher. A range of practical activities will be explored that can be used with pupils across the primary phase.
Prerequisites
There is an additional cost of £7 for the intervention pack/materials. This is included within the cost of the course.
