Getting students to see themselves as writers can be difficult, but rewarding. The result is improved student results and increased levels of engagement and enjoyment in the classroom.
This professional development session looks at processes you can put into place in your classroom (and across the English domain) to assist students embrace the challenge of writing effectively.
