Year 9 English IncursionPosted in Secondary on Friday, 8 March, 2019
Year 9 English students took part in an incursion to prepare for their NAPLAN Writing. The incursion, held on Wednesday was run by College favourite Jenny Botje, Senior Education Officer from the Literature Centre in Fremantle.
Classes were rostered into the incursion for two periods where Jenny took them through persuasive writing and techniques of persuasion in preparation for their NAPLAN Writing section. The students were asked to come up with ideas for a persuasive writing piece and then they practiced topic sentences and paragraph structure.
The persuasive writing incursion has been run for many years at the College and students find it is a valuable educational experience that brings their writing to a higher standard.
