Best Practice in the Writing Classroom

In this paper students explore writing discourses; analysing and critiquing a range of theoretical perspectives and teaching practices. Participants are required to reflect on their discursive practices and how these position them as teachers of writing. Current pedagogical research in terms of effective teaching and assessment practices are discussed and teachers transfer these understandings to a small research project in a practical teaching situation. This paper extends PGLit students' knowledge regarding the teaching of writing and enables teachers to reflect on their own practices.
