Literature’s transformative power makes it a valuable resource for teaching and learning and especially building vital literacy skills.

Brightpath: Next Steps creates the opportunity to further develop and nurture students’ writing skills through quality Australian children’s literature with a focus on language, storytelling, character, and the creative process.

This professional learning opportunity provides Learning Leaders the unique opportunity to work with fellow professionals to improve children and young peoples’ writing and reading through children’s literature.

Course materials will be provided in a digital format and accessed through a secure digital platform (Sharepoint) managed by the Association of Independent Schools of Western Australia (AISWA).

Course materials comprise:

  • Resource booklets
  • Video interviews and four case studies (which could be replicated at your school)
  • video interviews with leading Australian authors – Mark Greenwood and Frane Lessac
  • Course work booklets
  • All slides and presenters’ notes
