Lift the achievement of boys' writing in Years 1 - 10.
My aims are:
- To increase engagement and motivation for writing
- "I want to write because I like to write"
- To improve and shift achievement in writing
- "I want to write because I know how to write"
Just recently, I completed a quick survey of my year 9 class and when asked if they liked school, 100% said yes. When I asked them what they liked, the common answers were 'meeting new people and making new friends, having different classes and doing new subjects'. These responses were surprising to me and I have to give our kids credit. They've taught me that yip change can be scary but we (as teachers) need to accept that they will step up and accept it and we need to respond to what they like rather than what we think they like. More kids voice, less teachers me thinks!!
To read more, have a look at this inquiry presentation that will show what I've been up to so far!
