LDA has organised a full day workshop with leading speech pathologist, Jenny Baker, who will teach the functional role of grammar within written narrative and persuasive texts.

This workshop will teach participants about the functional role of grammar within narrative and persuasive texts, including strategies for explaining punctuation. • Within Narrative writing - the focus will be on increasing subordination within sentences using adverbials, descriptive language, connecting devices and verb types • Within Expository writing - the focus will be on a variety of linguistic devices used to deliver imagery, power, emphasis, emotion and persuasion. A case study of a year 4 student will be used to illustrate how these strategies were successfully employed.
