STMC Writing Superstars!http://www.stmc.qld.edu.au/news-events/Pages/STMCWritingSuperstars!.aspxSTMC Writing Superstars!<p class="Normal" style="margin-top:12px;margin-bottom:12px;padding:0px;border:0px;outline:0px;vertical-align:baseline;line-height:1.55em;text-align:justify;color:#444444;font-family:"open sans", arial, helvetica, sans-serif;">​​At the start of the year, our College set an ambitious goal to improve writing across years 7-10. The journey began when ‘We Write More’ was born and our teachers began to incorporate a variety of 10 minute of writing exercises into their lesson 1 classes.<br></p><p class="Normal" style="margin-top:12px;margin-bottom:12px;padding:0px;border:0px;outline:0px;vertical-align:baseline;line-height:1.55em;text-align:justify;color:#444444;font-family:"open sans", arial, helvetica, sans-serif;">Throughout the year, samples of student work have been collected and collaboratively marked against eight criteria- purpose, audience, text structure, subject matter, sentence structure, vocabulary and spelling. Each sample is given a total score out of 24 and our students’ progress has been monitored closely.</p><p class="Normal" style="margin-top:12px;margin-bottom:12px;padding:0px;border:0px;outline:0px;vertical-align:baseline;line-height:1.55em;text-align:justify;color:#444444;font-family:"open sans", arial, helvetica, sans-serif;">Each round of marking has provided important data to plan the best way to reach our writing SMART goal. A major focus has been teaching students to incorporate a variety of sentence types and paragraph structures to make their writing more sophisticated and interesting.</p><p class="ImageNoBorder" style="margin-top:12px;margin-bottom:12px;padding:0px;border:0px;outline:0px;vertical-align:baseline;font-weight:bold;line-height:1.55em;font-style:italic;color:#444444;font-family:"open sans", arial, helvetica, sans-serif;text-align:center !important;"><img src="https://d2qbrbr54edk3k.cloudfront.net/stthomasmc/szschool/newsletter/47152/image/181119035103216/600x372/image003.png" alt="" style="margin:5px;padding:0px;border-width:0px;border-style:initial;outline:0px;vertical-align:baseline;background:none;box-shadow:none;width:556px;" /> </p><p class="Normal" style="margin-top:12px;margin-bottom:12px;padding:0px;border:0px;outline:0px;vertical-align:baseline;line-height:1.55em;text-align:justify;color:#444444;font-family:"open sans", arial, helvetica, sans-serif;">Our final round of marking has revealed outstanding progress for our students.
