Writing is an important communicative skill. Higher levels language proficiency examinations such as AP Chinese or IB tests demand demonstration of good writing skills.
This workshop will be discussing how to develop students’ writing proficiency in “Discourses”. Here, the “Discourse” refers to 3 contexts of teaching and learning: vertical curricular; holistic or integrated language use; and specific cohesive and logical development of the ideas.
This discussion will focus on considerations, strategies and instructional tips that guide the teaching and learning in classroom in terms of content, instruction, and assessment.
Classroom practice, such as concrete lesson plans, instructional steps and student work will be demonstrated. Participants are encouraged to share ideas or relevant materials during discussions.
*The program will be conducted in Mandarin
