Learn effective literacy teaching techniques for Foundation to Year 8 students

This webinar series explores pedagogical and literacy practices that underpin high-impact literacy teaching.

Showcasing the power of an instructional model, the 3 webinars examine the ways the Workshop Model is being implemented in different school contexts. This will include examples of practice in action provided by educators from a range of Foundation to Year 8 classes.

These webinars have been developed in response to teachers’ requests for further exploration of the Workshop Model how to:

  • apply it effectively in a classroom
  • develop authentic tasks
  • use writers’ and readers’ notebooks to help students learn.

Audience

Designed for literacy leaders and teachers with responsibility or desire to expand their knowledge and experience of literacy instruction.

Facilitator

The series is delivered by education consultant Danny Hyndman in collaboration with the Department of Education and Training.
