Talk for Writing - Fiction

Course details

Talk for Writing, developed by Pie Corbett, supported by Julia Strong, is powerful because it is based on the principles of how children learn. It enables children to imitate the language features they need for a particular topic orally before reading and analysing it. They then use this to create their own version.

The day will focus on exploring the principles and practices of Talk for Writing. By learning Fiction texts orally, children are able to internalize vocabulary, language patterns and structures which will support them to craft their own writing. More information about the approach can be found at www.talk4writing.com.
