Thank you for visiting Cornerstone Teacher Learning.
Our professional learning courses are designed around one core principle: there is a difference between what teachers do, which is teach writing, and what students do, which is write.
We think understanding that difference is the bedrock of writing improvement that works.
Like you, we’re on an improvement journey. We regularly update our courses and create new ones in response to what we have learned from you. You are welcome to check back regularly for updates or new courses.
Each fortnight you’ll learn a new teaching writing skill and then come back to a zoom session to tell us all about it. You’ll gain more skills and confidence in teaching writing – from whatever area of the curriculum you come from.
The 10 Week Teaching Writing Challenge begins on the 13th July 2021.
20 hours of elective PD | $400 per person + GST
Whatever your subject area, we all want the same thing; students who can clearly communicate and support their ideas and arguments using detailed evidence and subject-specific language.
5 Hours | $300 per person + GST
