Many schools allocate one or two lessons per week in the senior years to activities related to, but not necessarily part of, the curriculum. This time may be used for developing study skills or preparing students for external examinations, as well as co-curricular sessions such as with health and well-being, for example. A common name for this time is ACCESS.
If you are looking for additional ways to make this time productive, How to Write What You Want to Say … Student Workbook is an ideal resource to give to students so they can develop their understanding of the cognitive verbs and practise writing to demonstrate them.
In the workbook, students are given texts to deconstruct to show the language of a cognition. Also, they make notes to show the parts of the cognition by completing an appropriate graphic organiser. There is also space where they can independently practise completing a graphic organiser to show a cognition and space to write their notes into an extended piece to demonstrate that skill.
Other uses of How to Write What You Want to Say … Student Workbook include homework activities and purposeful and worthwhile activities for students to complete when they have a supply teacher.
How to Write What You Want to Say … Student Workbookis one of a set of three books written specifically for the purpose of explicitly teaching the cognitive verbs. The other books are How to Write What You Want to Say … Teacher’s Guide and How to Write What You Want to Say … 2nd Edition.
