More suitable for our high school teachers at Taylors. None the less, some of the structure and strategies are useful.

Provided insight on how to write essays for different purposes. By making participants do the activities Ron has shown us what English lessons must be like for our students. Taking away excellent skills to inform both my own and my students writing.

Some excellent ideas for discrete lessons but could improve on some all-encompassing skills and tips for gifted students to use on a day to day basis.

I am taking some things with me that are useful, however, a lot I will not be able to use. I felt that there was too much hands-on group work suited more for English, Geography, History, Primary Math, no my subject so much.
