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.
- 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.
Is Workshop Two accredited?
New South Wales
Completing Seven Steps to Writing Success Workshop Two: Putting It All Together (both face-to-face and online) will contribute 6 hours of NSW Education Standards Authority (NESA) Accredited PD in the priority area of Delivery and assessment of NSW Curriculum/Early Years Learning Framework addressing standard descriptors 2.5.2, 5.2.2 from the Australian Professional Standards for Teachers towards maintaining Proficient Teacher Accreditation in NSW.
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.
