SP227-22 Strategies to Improve Geographic Writing – Junior Cycle

 

Date:       Tuesday 18 January 2022
Time:       7 - 8 pm 
Venue:    Online via Zoom

From my experience in the geography classroom, students have similar problems expressing themselves clearly & coherently in a geographical writing style. In the past I was quick to prescribe geographical writing as an activity without explicitly teaching it in a careful sequence of logical steps. I have assumed that students will pick up geographical writing skills through some sort of osmosis. However, extended writing is one of the hardest tasks we can ask students to do. And my own anecdotal evidence suggests that very few students become good geographic writers on their own.

This webinar will cover practical strategies to improve our students geographic writing abilities at Junior Cycle. The ideology behind this will be to improve geographic writing at JC level as this should provide a solid foundation & translate to Senior Cycle.
