Re-designed for a term 2 start!

This series is centred on building individual and social capital as a leader of English in a primary school setting. These half day workshops will be held once in terms 2,3, and 4 and will engage Learning Leaders in practice exchange and stimulating professional dialogue about current and emerging best practices related to English learning, teaching and assessment. A highlight of these workshops will be hearing from guest presenters about approaches to teaching English in the primary setting.

Dialogue and collective inquiry will focus on:

  • Current English educational research and initiatives
  • Interpreting and understanding the English curriculum
  • English teaching and learning – planning and assessment
  • Sharing of classroom practice and English initiatives
  • Open discussion

In term 2 our guest presenter is Deb McKay.

Deb’s presentation will focus on developing impactful classroom practice through the utilisation of research-based pedagogies including Understanding by Design and Cognitive Science. Deb will model how these pedagogies can be used to plan, implement and assess impactful writing lessons.
