As a result of demand we are adding Writer collaborations as part of PETAA's Special Delivery program.
Special Delivery: Writer will become available during 2019. Schools can order this package which will involve selected PETAA books and discussion papers sent to your school, and a children's writer committed to working for three days in collaboration with your staff and students.
This school-writer collaboration will involve a half day of discussing school needs and planning before the visit, two days working in your school and a half day to follow up, mentor, liaise with you on the impact of this experience. The writer is in a unique position to be able to demonstrate and share how real writers write. The two days on site could involve working with children and/or teachers.
PETAA will liaise with schools and writers to match requirements as much as possible and find suitable dates that work for both parties. PETAA will cover costs of travel and accommodation if needed and send resources to the school to arrive before each author's visit.
This program has the potential to bring tailored professional learning as well as motivation, excitement and so much more to our schools. You get to plan and work with the writer about what you need.
