Online: Going Meta - Enabling rich talk about writing

Presented and moderated by Professor Debra Myhill, and comprising 5 distinct modules, this comprehensive course looks at what is meant by metalinguistic understanding, how to plan writing lessons which foster understanding of language choices and how to generate metalinguistic talk in your classroom. It explores metalinguistic modelling of choices in writing and unpacks writing as a craft. Each module will involve reference to research and underlying understandings combined with a writing activity, group discussions, quizzes and planning activities. Reference will be made to quality Australian literature as well as examples from overseas authors. There will be opportunities to draw together key learning and time for reflection.

This course is self-paced.
