HA Webinar: The creative building blocks of writing

Developing confident readers and writers in the history classroom and beyond

Event Type: CPD

Takes Place: 18th November 2021

Time: 4.00 - 5.00pm

Venue: Zoom

Description: Students and teachers can perceive literacy, particularly the challenges of extended reading and writing, to be a barrier to enjoyment of and success in history. Repeated lockdowns over the past two years have, despite teachers’ most creative and dedicated responses to remote learning, made it even harder to help children become confident readers and writers, and the impact of this is being felt in classrooms across the country. In this series of webinars, Rachel Lewin will draw on her experience as Head of Department for both English and History to offer practical ways in which teachers can rebuild and develop students’ confidence at word, sentence, paragraph and whole text levels. This session will focus on: from clause to sentence to paragraph to essay; how to scaffold writing fluency to enable sophisticated expression of historical thinking.
