The PDST literacy team invites all Senior Cycle teachers, literacy link teachers, literacy teams, and management to our upcoming Repeat Online PDST Literacy Collaborative – Embedding Writing Instruction across the Post-Primary Curriculum: “Harnessing Students’ Motivation to Improve Writing Outcomes and Experiences”

PDST Collaboratives offer teachers the time and space to come together and work collaboratively. They provide an opportunity to discuss ideas or issues arising from participants’ experiences in the classroom.

This Literacy Collaborative will explore
• the value and purposes of writing in all subjects
• methodologies and strategies that support writing instruction and assessment across all subjects
• how students’ motivation can be harnessed to improve writing experiences and outcomes
This Literacy Collaborative will provide participants with an opportunity to discuss and share
• their experiences of writing in their subject
• methodologies and strategies that support writing instruction and assessment
As this is a PDST Collaborative, participants will be asked to share good practice via a Padlet wall before and during the event. The Padlet will be accessible to all participants. One of the main purposes of the PDST Collaborative is the sharing of good practice by participants. We would greatly appreciate it if participants would be willing to share their resources and strategies in this way. There is also an expectation that participants will contribute their thoughts and strategies throughout the Collaborative.

Please contact margaretmarygrant@pdst.ie if you have any questions regarding the format of the evening or if you have any issues with registering.
