About the course

The SSTUWA, in partnership with TLN in Melbourne, are pleased to offer this online learning opportunity for early career teachers in their first five years of teaching.

Teachers in secondary settings have few opportunities to build their skills in developing student literacy skills. This session will demonstrate some basic skills and activities that all teachers can use to build student’s writing skills. While clearly literacy focussed, the emphasis will be on practical ideas that can be used across many subject areas.

Delivery method: Live online event

The event will be one hour in duration 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.
