Academic Curriculum

The right way to write

From Director of Curriculum, Elizabeth Watson

The college is offering Year 12 students HSC Writing workshops this term on Mondays and Wednesdays during Period 6 in the Fitzgerald Room. These will be run by Literacy Co-ordinator, Ms Hill and supported by the Head of Curriculum and a rotation of our Heads of Departments.

The workshops will include the following content:

Speed Writing: Develop your writing speed, accuracy and vocabulary

Writing with feedback: Students write in response to a stimulus and receive feedback on their written expression, spelling, grammar and punctuation. Teachers will provide guidance to students on making their writing more sophisticated. Students are able to bring along writing for specific subjects to be checked for use of written expression. The workshops are not designed to critique subject specific content. They are to provide skills to improve the student’s written responses.

Writing books will be provided for students to complete tasks and will produce a compact yet comprehensive reference book for the student to keep. Laptops will not be required, nor permitted to be used in these workshops.

Attendance is open to any Year 12 student.
