This one day workshop provides an opportunity to spend the day with Jane Considine, learning how to use The Write Stuff principles and techniques to plan a complete unit of work. During this workshop, Jane will guide teachers through the process of creating an effective writing unit.
HOW WILL THIS WORKSHOP BENEFIT TEACHERS?
This workshop will help teachers to
- develop a greater understanding of the writing expectations for this year group.
- sharpen subject knowledge of the punctuation and grammar teaching required for this year group.
- find out how to create a complete unit of work by mapping a logical teaching sequence, creating experience sessions and planning Sentence Stacking lessons.

IMPACT ON FUTURE PRACTICE
Both The Write Stuff book and The Write Stuff conferences introduce teachers to the Three Zones of Writing, Sentence Stacking and Deepen the Moment. These concepts are further illustrated in the free example unit plans available on our website.
