Narrative Writing Moderation

PL # 12937.
Starting on 8 Mar 2021
Cancellation permitted until 03/03/2021

Event registrations closed on 3/03/2021


What makes a narrative a narrative? How can narrative features be effectively organised to create a coherent text? What does character development look like and how do I know if students' vocabulary choices are appropriate? This short workshop will allow teachers to examine and critique narrative texts and begin to assess their students' narrative writing against NAPLAN criteria.

Please join us for afternoon tea from 3.30pm for a 4pm start.
