QCST Writing Task Success

Seven Secrets Good Students Must Know Before August/September

Give your capable students the edge!Teens taking exam

What is it about?

This interactive, practical presentation addresses the question: what really makes a difference in the Writing Task?

Other QCS training providers provide students with general advice on how to ensure they pass. This workshop is about much more than just passing; good students will discover specific things they can do to maximise their chances of receiving a high grade. Unlike other providers, the advice offered in this workshop is accurate and research based.

For example:

  • Did you know that the advice offered by some other providers to avoid narratives is wrong. In fact, students can achieve high results by writing stories, but the stories that are valued by markers are of a particular type.
  • Another provider suggests students go into the Writing Task with a collection of ten interesting, sophisticated words. In fact, students would be better to know about using the language of Appraisal.
  • Is it better to write in first or third person?

This is just a small taste of the valuable advice that students will receive in this Wordsmart Consulting presentation. Download a PDF flyer here: Writing Task Success flyer.

How long?

Typically, this presentation runs between 40-60 minutes, depending on school timetable arrangements. However, longer, more detailed presentations are available on request.

Who is it for?

Really anyone likely to sit the QCS Writing Task. It is particularly aimed at fairly capable students. However, the workshop would be valuable for a whole cohort, students in Year 11, staff (in Years 8 to 12) or parents.

Where is the workshop held?

In your school at a time that suits you.
