22TRA014 What’s the Story – Oral and Written Narratives



As the proverb goes:

“those who tell the stories rule the world”

Storytelling and narratives are a foundation for literacy and academics. At a deeper level, it is how we share stories and build connection. From weekend news to writing a novel, stories of all depths and lengths make up our stories. However, for some pupils telling you what just happened on the yard is a trial, and re-telling a storybook is immensely difficult. 

Delivered by a Speech and Language Therapist, this webinar will introduce you to the foundation skills of narrative development. You will leave the webinar with strategies you can introduce straight away, without funding or purchasing ‘kit’. 

  • What are the skills required for narrative and storytelling skills?
  • The link to ‘oral language’ curriculum
  • How to teach basic story telling skills
  • How to support narrative development for pre-literate pupils
  • Supporting structure in story generation for older pupils

The webinar is suitable for SNAs, class teachers, learning support teachers who work with primary school (Junior Infants up to 6th Class).

22TRA037 Strategies to Improve Geographic Writing – Senior Cycle






Date:       Tuesday 25 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 Senior Cycle. All activities will be viewed through the lens of improving SRP writing for the LC exam.

  • engage in a range of activities to enable the learner to establish their learner profile - their preferred learning style(s) and learning needs.
  • discuss the implications for learning and review a range of strategies - active and reflective - to draw on the learner’s innate strengths, empowering them to become independent learners.

22TRA042 How to Reduce Marking & Improve the Feedback Loop to Students – Whole Class Feedback.





Date:      Thursday 20 January 2022
Time:      7 pm - 8 pm
Venue:   Online via Zoom

Academic studies suggest that feedback has the potential to double the impact of learning and support the improvement of academic achievement. However, there is a difference between giving feedback and it being acted on. Teachers provide students with feedback all the time, but it is the acting on the feedback that contributes to pupils learning – ‘The power of the feedback is determined by the power of the follow-up’. 

When providing feedback, it should be more work for the student and not the teacher. Writing repetitive comments across whole sets of copies/assessments should be a practice of the past. It is time consuming for the teacher and does not feed the students forward. Whole Class Feedback (WCF) is a technique I have used that aims to:

  1. Analyse student assessment in 10-30 minutes.
  2. Complete a Whole Class Feedback Marking Sheet
  3. Create a ‘feedback’ lesson that focuses on re-teaching content through direct instruction, remodeling, practicing skills & redrafting.

WCF highlights clear & high expectations within my classroom & reduces the workload associated with marking.

Date: Thursday 20th January 2022

Time: 7.00 p.m - 8.30 p.m 

Location: Online Via Zoom

Course overview

An overview of grief and loss with relation to developmental stages of children will be given as a means of introducing this topic. Emphasis will be given to the importance of teacher self-care during times of loss in the classroom, including ways to become aware of personal triggers.

Insight in to how children may present if a loved one is ill, dying or has died will then be discussed using real life examples. The impact on learning and an understanding of the neurobiological changes that take place in times of distress will be outlined.

Best practices for communication with parents, the child, the class and the school community will then be presented. This includes addressing the common questions teachers have such as ''should I mention it to the child?", "should I/ when should I tell the class?", "What do I say when they come back to school?", "should I contact the parents?", "what do I do if the child becomes emotional?".

Practical tools to help children with the range of emotions they may experience will they be presented. This will be broken down into the areas of whole school and classroom teacher/ support teacher's roles.

Opportunity for questions and answers will be provided.

Finally, a list of further resources for teachers will be given.
