Writing Course Term 5: Troubleshooting

We don’t stop using our English skills when we leave education, so it’s important students learn how to communicate effectively in later life. In these tutorials, we work on troubleshooting problems we might encounter in later life: from disputing undeserved parking tickets and dealing with messy co-workers, to writing open letters to politicians and persuading our local council.

We cover a range of writing techniques and focus on creating the right tone to be effective and writing in an emotionally intelligent way in order to achieve our goals.

In these tutorials, the focus is very much on students writing and receiving live, in the moment feedback from the tutor to help them develop their writing.

  • Tutorials – The tutorials are a blend of direct teaching, group discussion of extracts and model writing, and writing practice with live feedback from the tutor
  • Writing requirements – Students need to write during the lessons using online worksheets. Students write at their own pace and receive guidance and encouragement along the way.
  • Feedback and support – Students will receive live feedback on written work during tutorials using Google Classrooms. It is useful to have a Google account that they can use for this purpose
  • Homework – Optional homework opportunities provided.
