Teacher Hub Members Update – Term 4 2023
This term we’ve got everything you need to get ready for end of year reports and celebrate your students’ success! We also have an exciting new Read to Write Classroom PowerPoint and a writing template to help your students recount their holiday adventures using Step 5: Show, Don’t Tell.
One key takeaway from our Members Survey was that using the writing courses boosts teachers’ confidence in the classroom! After completing the courses on Teacher Hub:
- 91% felt more confident about applying their knowledge of the Seven Steps techniques
- 90% felt more confident about selecting appropriate resources for their writing lessons
- 81% felt more confident about developing their own implementation plan.
Take a tour of our Writing Courses and find out how they help you learn and implement each Step. As Sarah always says – “start with the courses”.
Make the reading–writing connection
Research shows that great readers make great writers! Ignite the reading-writing connection with our new Read to Write PowerPoint: Green with Red Spots Horrible.
Identifying the techniques an author has used and assessing the impact they have on the reader, consolidates students’ understanding of both the text and the techniques.
To find more resources that can be used to foster the reading–writing connection go to the Resource Library and select ‘Read to Write’ in the Resource type dropdown.

With end-of-year reports on the horizon, it is a great idea to pre-test your students at the start of Term 4 using Track Your Success. The results spreadsheet will help you identify any areas of weakness that you need to address before the end of the year and gauge students’ progress at the end of term.
You have made some great headway this year, time to celebrate those successes with your class and the school community!
Holiday recounts shouldn’t run through every moment from when the second students leave school to the night before they come back. They should focus on the most interesting events and bringing them to life with descriptive language.
Here’s an example from a Year 2 student at Surise Christian School in South Australia:
I saw an amazing sunset sparkling through the bright green trees. I saw the fire crackling in the fire pit. The flames were bright orange, shooting up at the night sky.
