language genres. It supports teachers to develop comprehension and composition skills in students
through their study of a prescribed text, King Lear. The webinar will illustrate scaffolded
writing opportunities and these opportunities will be enriched by the introduction of other short
stimulus pieces that will support students' learning assessed in Leaving Certificate, Higher Level,
Paper One.
