Improving Future Writing Outcomes

In response to key find­ings from the Aus­tralian Edu­ca­tion Research Organ­i­sa­tion (AERO) report, Writ­ing devel­op­ment: What does a decade of NAPLAN data reveal?‘ IST’s con­sult­ing team will run a tar­get­ed series of pro­fes­sion­al learn­ing ses­sions with a focus on writing.

At the cen­tre of these ses­sions is an Action Research Writ­ing Instruc­tion Project. The objec­tive of this project is to assist schools to devel­op a whole-school approach to improv­ing writ­ing out­comes, empha­sis­ing the impor­tance of teach­ing writ­ing through all learn­ing areas.

Fol­low­ing many of the rec­om­men­da­tions of the AERO report, the IST team have planned a series of sys­tem­at­ic PL ses­sions to sup­port teach­ers and Lit­er­a­cy Lead­ers to build their capac­i­ty and ped­a­gog­i­cal knowl­edge in the writ­ing domain. This pro­fes­sion­al learn­ing pro­gram and action research project aims to build par­tic­i­pants’ skills and aware­ness of the cur­rent evi­dence-based best prac­tice and empow­er them to return to their con­text to upskill and train oth­ers in writ­ing instruc­tion. After each ses­sion, par­tic­i­pants will go back to their schools with an action plan designed to sup­port teach­ers to set goals and embed their new knowl­edge into prac­tice. They will also par­tic­i­pate in a termly com­mu­ni­ty of prac­tice’ webi­nar to dis­cuss their expe­ri­ences, report on progress, and share ideas.
