Moderating Children’s Writing – Pizza Afternoon/Evening | Monday 21st May - 4pm – 7pm | Moerlina School

Moderation of young children’s writing in PP-2 can be challenging. Come along to our after school session, to share your children’s writing and feel confident about using the SCSA judging standards, to assist you when writing reports. Participants will be sent a task relative to their year level to undertake with their children in order to bring samples to the session for moderation with colleagues.  Focus will be on the developmental nature of observations and expectations using the SCSA judging standards. This is an afternoon/evening session with a light meal provided.  Please note dietary requirements when booking.
