About this Event

8 WEEK COURSE (12-14-YEARS)

What's it all about...

It's an online writing community for children aged between 12-14 years of age. Children receive a weekly guided video lesson for 8 weeks. Each video teaches them a new writing skill or technique. Video lessons follow best teaching practice, with clear student-friendly learning intentions, success criteria, activities to practice skills, and reflection and evaluation questions. It's a proper lesson, not a Youtube clip. That's the teacher in me! But don't worry, lessons are fun and engaging to watch with animation, music, and embedded video clips. Video lessons are self-guided and children have a whole week to practice new skills and complete tasks. Writing activities are long enough to have a positive impact on their learning but short enough to be achievable.

As soon as children receive their first video lesson, they automatically become part of 'Write Club' - an online writing community for children. Children join via a password protected link and participate in short, fun writing activities. They also have the opportunity to share and discuss their writing. Write Club runs every fortnight on a Saturday morning and is facilitated by me. Attendance is optional, but it's so much fun why would they want to miss it! Children can come along to be inspired, seek advice, sharpen their writing skills, or learn something new.

Your child will learn to...

  • Use a range of strategies (Tips and tricks!) professional writers use
  • Structure a story & develop characters
  • Add voice to their writing and develop their own style
  • Create mood through careful word choice
  • Read like a writer and copy effective writing techniques
  • Develop their confidence as writers

A little about me...

My name is Samantha Nicolaides and I’ve been passionately working with children in the areas of reading and writing for over 15 years. As well as teaching children the necessary writing skills and strategies, I also help them develop a passion for writing through engaging and fun lessons. Students are gently guided with constructive feedback which invites conversation and avoids judgment. I help them understand themselves as writers and instill in them the confidence to take risks and apply new skills and strategies to their writing, within and outside the classroom. Equipped with this new knowledge and an abundance of self-belief – born from results, not praise – my students learn to think, talk, and most importantly – write like writers.

Write Club is $75 and includes -

  • 8 video tutorial lessons: All lessons are written by a qualified teacher with over 15 years of experience teaching literacy. Lessons follow best teaching practices and have a predictable structure. That way, students can easily adapt to the format and have a clear understanding of their role as learners for the different parts of the lesson.
  • Downloadable exercises and scaffolds: Some of the videos also have additional support material. If students are unable to print the downloads, there is always a copy they can view on the video.
  • Unlimited access to the Write Club Community for 8 weeks: Running fortnightly on a Saturday between 9:30am - 10:30am, students can join the online writing community and participate in a range of fun and engaging writing activities. Students who wish to continue write club after the 8 week period, can join on a $20 per month subscription. Subscriptions can be cancelled anytime.

FAQ -

  • When does it start? Once you register your child, they will receive their video tutorial lesson on the first Monday and then every week after for a total of 8 weeks.
  • How does my child join the online Writing Club Community? After you register, your child will receive an email with information and a link to join Write Club. It's that simple.
  • What platform do you use for the online Write Club? Write Club is run using the Zoom video conferencing platform. Children will be given a password protected link to enter. Parental permission is required for students to have their video and microphone on. Children can have these switched off and communicate through the chat room. Children must be dressed appropriately and be in a common living area. Sessions are not recorded.
  • Will my child receive personal tutoring? This is not a one to one tutoring service. However, during Write Club, your child is most welcome to ask questions/advice or share their writing for feedback from the group and the writing instructor.
