Reflective Practice with Teachers of Early Writers 2014

Reflective Practice with Teachers of Early Writers was a professional learning project that sought to develop teacher understanding and practice in relation to how young children learn to communicate through writing. It built on the success of the 2013 project, Creating Texts with 21st Century Early Learners in which teachers undertook an action research project to explore effective ways of facilitating early writing.

The 2014 project aimed to create a community of learners to explore early writing through sharing and challenging knowledge, understanding and practices in order to enhance early writing development. The experiences presented throughout the project were diverse but consistently designed to challenge the participants thinking and practice. The participants were engaged in deep reflection of their knowledge, beliefs and attitudes about how young children learn to write and about effective ways of developing children’s communication through writing.
