About the Presentation

How can children be helped to become better writers? From writing narratives to book reports and letters, many writing situations are presented to children, both in school and out of it. The digital world presents even more opportunities for children to write and to communicate their thoughts. Yet many children are reluctant writers, and their efforts are often run-of-the-mill. This seminar will explore strategies that parents with children in primary school can use to get their children hooked on writing, and make writing an enjoyable activity for both parent and child.
