Online: Joint construction — Informative

Teacher with students at a table
Presented by Joanne Rossbridge, this course is designed to develop knowledge and metalanguage to explore how to support students in the joint construction of informative texts. Choice of model texts will be considered by looking at examples from subject areas such as History, Science and Geography. Teachers will be provided with ways to read model texts in order to identify a focus on language choices across a range of informative texts. Links between modelling, reconstruction and joint construction will be made through strategies such as dictogloss and the development of meaningful learning intentions and success criteria for writing. Joint construction will be looked at during the drafting and editing phases in the process of writing.

This course is self-paced
