Writing Courses

Writing includes the ability to plan, compose, edit and publish texts in print or digital forms. It usually involves activities using pencils, pens, word processors; and/or using drawings, models, photos to represent text; and/or using a scribe to record responses or produce recorded responses. 

These PETAA courses acknowledge that writing is one of the productive language modes and that learning to write requires gaining control of language at the levels of text, paragraph, sentence and word. These courses provide teachers with knowledge about genre, text patterns, grammar and vocabulary, spelling and punctuation, and offer strategies for guiding students through choosing language for a particular purpose and communicating with a particular audience.
