About the course

The SSTUWA, in partnership with TLN in Melbourne, are pleased to offer this online learning opportunity.

Literacy is a fundamental building block for all students whatever the subject. All teachers need to build their capability to support the development of students' literacy skills. Teachers need a solid foundation and understanding of literacy strategies. This is a 'crash course' in practical strategies that you can use to build literacy skills if you have students in your secondary classroom who are struggling. The focus will be on reading and writing fundamentals. You will leave this session with practical literacy ideas that you can use the next day.

Delivery method: Live online event

The event will be one hour in duration via ZOOM and consist of live delivery of content at the specified time by a presenter and a host. You will also have an opportunity to interact with other participants and engage with the presenter online. Completing this course will contribute to one hour of professional learning and a certificate will be provided at the end of the session.
