Big Write & VCOP
December 6, 2017 @ 9:00 am - 3:30 pm$275
Big Write & VCOP is a teaching approach based on the research of Ros Wilson, an expert based in the UK. It focuses on four main aspects of the writing process (VCOP – Vocabulary, Connectives, Openers and Punctuation) and provides children with the skills to improve their own writing through self-assessment. Widely used internationally, Big Write & VCOP is now available in Australia.
Big Write & VCOP is designed to bring fun back into writing, to make the children want to write, and to be continuously challenged throughout the writing journey.
Based on the premise that ‘if they can’t say it, they can’t write it’ we begin with developing oral language skills first, making it suitable for Kinder right through to Secondary level. It comes complete with a comprehensive, evidence-based assessment tool for both the student and the teacher (linked to the Australian National Curriculum), that develops consistency and accuracy of writing assessment right across your school.
We will provide you with all the skills and knowledge that you require to get your classroom and students ready for an engaging writing journey.
