FAQs

What's the difference between Workshop One and Workshop Two?

In Workshop One you’ll learn the overall theory and approach of each of the Seven Steps and powerful secrets for teaching great writing.

In Workshop Two you’ll learn how to take your students’ writing further, so they can independently write and self-assess whole, rich texts.

Who is Workshop Two for?

Workshop Two is for teachers who are experienced in the Seven Steps.

It is a requirement that you have learned the theory and taught at least Steps 1, 2, 3 and 7 in your classroom. This will ensure that you and all participants get the most out of the day and take away a more advanced understanding of the Seven Steps.

To attend Workshop Two, you must:

  • have been trained in the Seven Steps through one or more of the following methods:
    • face-to-face training – attended either a Workshop or whole-school training
    • official coaching – been taught the theory and practice of at least Steps 1, 2, 3 and 7 by a licensed Seven Steps Coach
    • via Teacher Hub (formerly Seven Steps Online) – watched at least all the theory videos in the Narrative Writing Course.

AND

  • have rolled out the Seven Steps (or at least Steps 1, 2, 3 and 7) in your classroom.

Please note that while Workshop Two will briefly touch on the key points of each Step, we won’t be going into detail as it is assumed that participants already know the Seven Steps.

If you think you may need a refresher of the Seven Steps theory, we welcome you to come back to Workshop One or sign up to Teacher Hub.

Is Workshop Two accredited?

Yes!

Is Workshop Two suitable for lower primary teachers?

The activities in Workshop Two are designed for intermediate writers, but they can easily be adapted to suit beginner writers. Differentiation suggestions are provided as part of each session and there are opportunities to discuss ideas with other participants.

For additional support on how to use the Seven Steps techniques with early years students, we recommend Applying the Seven Steps with Beginner Writers (Online Session).

Is Workshop Two suitable for secondary teachers?

Yes. Workshop Two can help you teach students how to progress their writing well into early secondary and beyond. Your students will learn how to apply the Seven Steps techniques to different text types, create hybrid texts by integrating elements of all three text types, write a complete text with confidence, and self-assess their work to improve it. These are invaluable skills throughout secondary school.

Is this a leadership course?

Workshop Two is not a leadership course. It is designed to help classroom teachers further advance their students’ writing.

What do I receive at this course?

You’ll receive a handout with resources, activities, feedback and assessment rubrics, planning templates and writing graphs. You’ll also receive access to an exclusive Workshop Two web page containing resources, links and videos referenced during the day.

I'd love a copy of the PowerPoint presentation the presenter used at the workshop. Can I have a copy of the slides?

While we don’t provide copies of the slides, we do provide an extensive workshop handout packed with theory, activities and templates, plus plenty of space to take notes during the session!
