The SSTUWA, in partnership with TLN in Melbourne, are pleased to offer this online learning opportunity.
Every curriculum decision we make, including the texts we use in our classroom, makes a difference to student learning. When we make conscious choices about the texts we use, and how we teach with those texts, we make a statement about what is important to us as a teacher. In this session the presenter, an award winning teacher who has published widely on the role of schools in promoting democracy, will outline how they make choices about the texts they use in the classroom. Texts can include the books we use in English classrooms, the textbooks across any subject, the visual and audio material we select, and the short extracts from media sources and other printed material. This session is about how you make a difference in your curriculum choices.
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.
TLN is a Melbourne based, not-for-profit professional development provider supported by the Australian Education Union Victoria Branch and the Independent Education Union Victoria/Tasmania Branch. SSTUWA will be your major source of communication before the online event. Prior to the live event, SSTUWA will email you detailed instructions about how to access the online training space. TLN will then provide immediate telephone support just before the event begins on the day, and during the training if required.

We wish to acknowledge the traditional custodians of the land on which we live and work. We wish to pay respect to their Elders - past, present and future - and acknowledge the important role all Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people continue to play within Australia. We stand in solidarity.
