Thank you to the 120 history teachers who attended our Killing Off PEEL seminar over the past few weeks.

I admit the title was cheeky - but the lovely feedback and takeaways suggested that all of you are committed to asking better questions and looking under more obvious rocks to achieve writing improvement for your students.

And remember - there is a big difference between what students do which is write, and what teachers do which is teach writing.

Weekend reading. David Leser’s latest article in Good Weekend.

Speechless.

I’m just going to let this sink in for a few days.

I've recently been thinking a lot about advice.

In a crowded social media world where fact and opinion is often blurred and expertise is sometimes buried under an Internet awash with information, I wonder if we need to get back to the simple things?

When I thought about all the advice that I had received to get fitter, eat healthier, develop better mental or emotional habits, write or teach more effectively, be a better parent or get my finances in order, something dawned on me.

And it was this: who is giving the advice is important because they boil down years of experience to a few simple rules that work in a complex world. If you follow them.

I had fun writing this article for Rob and his team at The Wealth Quay - and I'm posting it here because I think it applies to a lot of area of life and teaching.

Check out our latest article on the difference between writing and teaching writing.

The truth is, there is no road map to more effective teaching of writing. But there is a compass – and the north point is understanding the difference between writing and teaching writing.

Thanks to the teachers who came along to Writing in Modern History yesterday.

As a workshop based seminar - teachers discovered that teaching writing is much much different to the act of writing.

A great discussion and lots of insight from colleagues from across the state.
