CPD Training for Staff introducing the Talk for Writing process

This is a presentation I created for new staff to guide them through the Talk for Writing process. The information I have has been gathered from many training sessions with Pie Corbett and through years of experience of teaching using Talk for Writing in two different schools. The presentation includes: information about the 3 stages, videos, examples of boxing up, information about curriculum and wall displays. It would be useful for an individual, group or school who are thinking about starting the Talk for Writing approach and want to find out more.

'How to Become a Successful TES Author - Step by Step Guide' - A 'Must Have' For Authors!

'How to Become a Successful TES Author - Step by Step Guide' - A 'Must Have' For Authors!

I began to produce educational resources for TES in August 2015. When I look back at my early resources I cringe! I made so many mistakes…. Since then I have come a long way and learned so much. I currently have 38 TES recommended resources. One of my resources made over 900 sales in the space of a few weeks and earned nearly £2000 in royalties. I have recently been shortlisted as one of eight nominees for the TES 2017, Bev Evans, Author of the Year Award.In this 26-page, step by step guide I share my mistakes and my successes to help you avoid making the same mistakes and to become a successful author sooner than you would have done without this guide. I do not claim to have all the answers and ‘my way’ might not be other people’s way. However, whether you are a potential author, an author starting out or already an author; I am sure that this guide can help you in some way and will prove a worthwhile investment. The guide includes advice on Making resourcesMaximising the selling potential of resourcesCreating a cover pageSourcing imagesCopyrighting your resourcesPricing your resourcesProduct DescriptionsHTML codes for creating bold, italics, underlining, bullet pints and numbered lists for product description pageAdding links to other products and your shop in descriptionsCreating your TES shopBrandingIncreasing the visibility of your resourcesPromoting your products through social media platformsPromoting yourselfDealing with reviewsGeneral advice The resource also contains hyperlinks to some very useful sites and tools which will help you in making and promoting your products.Other Resources for AuthorsAuthor Calendar and Planner Nine out of ten of my top selling resources are seasonal resources and special days resources.

NPQSL Final Combined Task - completed 2016 - under new framework

NPQSL Final Combined Task - completed 2016 - under new framework

This assignment includes my: blood, sweat and tears! This is my NPQSL assignment and is focused on improving writing in a primary school. I really wish I'd had an NPQSL example assignment to look at while I was writing mine as it would have stopped me second guessing myself. However, I passed with flying colours and am now offering mine to you to make the process much easier. I uploaded the assignment on 8.2.16 and received feedback on 29.3.16. Feedback (as shown on first page) awarded all of the 9 competencies as passed at the required level. The written feedback was excellent and only includes strengths, no areas for development. I have deleted several appendices because they included photographic evidence of specific events/individuals. I would recommend that you consider doing this also as visuals are always a nice break from a lengthy piece of text. However, I have kept my action plan and report to the Headteacher in the appendices as I feel these are important for your reference. My resources always take me a lot of time and effort to create so I hope that they help to save you some precious time - please do review my resources. Thank you!A section from my written feedback:'Strengths were demonstrated in Delivering continuous improvement as your priorities for improvement were clearly linked to your vision for the project. You regularly reviewed progress and reflected on actions and achievements of pupils in writing. The Action plan and strategies were fully implemented and you skilfully monitored planning, teaching, learning and assessment data. Throughout the project you remained solution-focused. In terms of Modelling excellence in leadership of teaching and learning you demonstratedexcellent leadership of teaching and learning. You set up and embedded the writing initiatives and adapted the teaching and learning approaches to suit the needs of pupils. It is evident that you have high expectations, model excellence and vision and have shared ideas and practice very effectively. Staff have been provided with the clarity they need in order to feel empowered and accountable in their role. Strengths were demonstrated in Learning focus as you set up and embedded the writing initiative and applied theory and knowledge of learning to improve outcomes for pupils. It is evident that you are committed to learning and achieving excellence and led valuable inset for staff to improve their subject knowledge in grammar, planning and writing. '

NPQSL - Combined Course 2017 - Passed with no development points

NPQSL - Combined Course 2017 - Passed with no development points

When on this course I searched the internet for hours trying to find a document that would give me an idea about the course. I couldn't find anything. So after receiving my feedback and completing the course, I decided to place my assignment on here. I passed the course and my assignment was deemed to have no development points. All competencies were classed as strengths. My assignment is phonics based, but process, layout, format, information to include etc will apply to any project. "Strengths were demonstrated in Delivering continuous improvement as your priorities for improvement were clearly linked to your vision for the project.In terms of Modelling excellence in leadership of teaching and learning, you have been persistent in your drive to demonstrate excellence in all aspects of Read, Write, Inc. leadership.Strengths were demonstrated in Learning focus, as you kept learning and pedagogy at the core of the curriculum and your leadership practice.Strengths were demonstrated in Impact and influence, as you used new approaches, initiatives and knowledge gained to support staff and promote the project.Self-awareness is an area of strength, because you remained self-aware, reflective and evaluative throughout the project." - Feedback From ModeratorEnjoy!
