Understanding and Supporting Young Writers: Research Report

Fifteen early childhood professionals and teachers from the Marysville Cluster and the Darebin Early Years Network participated in inquiry-based professional learning from April to July 2015. This project sought to address four research questions:

  • What happens when early childhood educators work with teachers in the early years of school in order to support early writers?
  • What would a shared approach to the support of young writers look like (across early childhood and school settings)?
  • What professional learning for teachers comes from this approach?
  • What difference does this approach make for children, their families and the early childhood professionals involved?
