About the course

The SSTUWA, in partnership with TLN in Melbourne, are pleased to offer this online learning opportunity for secondary and TAFE educators.

In a secondary classroom there is little opportunity to review skills and foundation knowledge that are covered in early literacy education. However, if a student is missing some of the fundamentals it is essential that these skills are incorporated into the tasks  they are engaged with. Encouraging students to focus on features of text types, vocabulary and using their imagination to engage the audience can make significant improvements to student achievement. This session will outline strategies for teachers to use to help ensure that fundamental skills are covered whilst still making the lessons engaging.

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.
