Teachers at the Victoria Carlton Centre for Excellence in Bayswater have instituted several changes to their writing program with remarkable results.
MIND JOURNEYS is a method of teaching that increases imaginative thinking and ability to create “mind-movies” as you write.
Victoria commented, “It is not uncommon for children to go from 2 lines to a whole page in 1 or 2 lessons! It is like a hole in the mind is opened and ideas pour out onto the paper!”
MAD WRITING stands for Modelled Awesome Daily writing and children watch a brief modelled session by trained teachers and then write on specific engaging topics. The results are immediate as children are given complete models, support and immediate feedback. Even their most reluctant writers will try with this method!
Training for these two methods is included in the Professional Development course, GROWING WRITERS available to educators.
