Practical Pedagogies for Teaching Sentences

22nd Mar 17 3:30 PM - 6:00 PM

This twilight presentation will provide you with a range of engaging, evidence-based strategies to improve students’ sentence writing. Successfully used in many classrooms, these strategies help students to construct strong sentences that convey their intended meaning and engage readers. Throughout the presentation, links with the Australian Curriculum will be made explicit and opportunities for differentiation will be identified.
