[Please note this is a repeat of the PL event run on 14 March]
This workshop is divided into three two hour sessions. The first session is devoted to reading.
If we want to develop students as sophisticated readers and writers, replacing one formulaic approach to writing about texts, TEEL, with another formula will not work. The aim of this day is to help teachers in Years 7 – 12 develop student readers through providing strategies which will enable students to find their own reading of a text; to develop students as writers with voice through a program which builds from year to year; and to work with students on the principles of essay writing so that they are enabled to express their own thinking about texts in a confident and fluent style.
All of the speakers in this workshop have participated in the DET funded VATE Reading Community of Practice. They are all experienced secondary educators. Teachers will take away a range of resources from each of the sessions which will help them on their return to their schools and will additionally help less capable students develop their reading comprehension in order to enhance their own voice when writing essays.
