Talk For Writing
Leschenault Catholic Primary School uses Talk For Writing in its whole-school approach to teaching written expression. Our aim is to develop written language skills through providing rich and meaningful oral literacy experiences.
Talk For Writing is a process that uses spoken activities to develop student's writing skills. Quality writing is created by focussing on oral langauge skills, expanding upon using visual cues and then teaching the important steps for sentence, paragraph and text construction.
We begin by hooking the student’s imaginations and inspire a passion for writing by empowering students with unique and creative writing tools. Talk for Writing supports students to apply their skills in a variety of contexts, enabling them to become more confident and independent writers.
Recently, students have won writing competitions that have resulted in their short stories being published.
