WRITING INQUIRY GROUP
Year-long Collaborative Inquiry and Support for the teaching of Writing facilitated by Katie Ashmead
Our popular Writing Inquiry Group continues for its seventh year!
This is a Pedagogical Inquiry Group – not a workshop.
We created this Inquiry Group for all the educators who have participated in our Introductory Mini Courses and who are looking to extend and enrich their pedagogy of writing. Katie will follow the interests and questions from the group and facilitate dialogue where teachers troubleshoot, inspire and support each other.
Join a small group of like-minded educators from preschool and primary school settings to deepen your understandings about the pedagogical approach of Bookmaking and Writing Workshop.
It is important to understand that these are NOT facilitated like a workshop where everything is pre-prepared.
INTRODUCTION TO BOOKMAKING FOR 3-8 YEAR OLDS MINI COURSE
Facilitated by Mimi Hayward & Katie Ashmead
2 Day Mini Course
After moving Term 1’s Mini Course online, we are thrilled to be able to offer this opportunity in person in Term 2, generously hosted by Ngutu College.
This Mini Course has a specific focus on working with 3-8 year old writers in Kindergarten and Early Years of School.
The Bookmaking approach to literacy values and honours children’s prior learning, their cultural competence and their dispositions of learning. It uses these to drive learning deeper and to create a culture of thinking, talking and noticing about books. It values the intellectual quality of mark-making as an essential component of being a writer.
INTRODUCTION TO WRITER’S NOTEBOOKS YEARS 3-6
Hybrid eCourse, self-paced and including two live Q&A and Sharing Sessions with Lisa Burman over Zoom.
An online version of the 2-day Mini Course we have facilitated in South Australia for the past ten years.
The majority of this course is self-paced, as you work through the modules in your own time, at your own speed.
There are also two opportunities for live Zoom sessions with Lisa Burman, which will be recorded if you’re unable to join live.
This Mini Course is most suited to educators working with young writers in Years 3-7.
