Our 2018 national event is a unique opportunity for teachers, instructional leaders, and school executives.
Writing the Future is an opportunity to learn, experience and reflect on all the skills required to create a school with writing embedded in its school culture.
Over two days, a curated, integrated sequence of sessions will focus on the building blocks of writing, talk in classrooms to prepare students for writing, creative approaches to writing, and how to apply these skills across the curriculum and across the school.
Within this context, teachers and school and literacy leaders will be encouraged to reflect on their practice and consider the power of growing ‘learning communities.’
The two days of Writing the Future will also provide attendees with the opportunity to experience the work of a wide variety of inspirational community-based organisations who are active in the English and Literacy space and will exhibit in our Showcase arena. And through the practical experiences of our Showcase Schools, they will have the opportunity to further hone their own writing skills.
