This webinar is the first part of a two-part series which consider how to design assessment tasks in writing and how to evaluate those tasks. We will share strategies that are applicable to any classroom: whether you’re teaching face to face, online, or a combination of both.
Writing can be one of the hardest skills to acquire especially for young learners who can find writing cognitively demanding and may still be learning literacy in their first language(s). These young learners tend perform much better when they are given tasks which are familiar to them and in which they can demonstrate success. This session looks at how we can utilise and adapt coursebook materials to create tasks which allow us to assess young leaners’ progress and achievement in writing.
We will consider how we can adapt a variety of classroom activities, including those focused on grammar and vocabulary as well as the four skills and visuals to design writing assessment tasks which are meaningful to the young learner. We will also show how these tasks can be adapted to assess specific writing features as well as a more holistic approach.
