  • generating ideas for action
  • professional discourse.

Three sessions will be offered throughout 2022 and each will be three hours in duration.


 Workshop 1 with Dr Bronwyn Parkin:

What does it take to create competent readers?

What might an effective school-wide reading program look like?

This workshop will unpack the needs of developing readers through the year levels and through the learning areas, working with participants to identify the teaching and learning priorities for each stage. Participants will identify decoding strategies that competent readers use, understand why inferential comprehension is so difficult for some readers, and understand  what teachers can do about it.

Workshop 2 (27 May) and workshop 3 (2 September) topics will be informed by workshop 1 participants’ comments and feedback.
