A circle of happy kids — laying in star formation on lawn
Presented by Dr Margery Hertzberg and Dr Leonie Arthur. This practical course will provide teachers with a range of strategies for small group interactive language and literacy experiences. There is a focus on play-based and hands-on experiences and authentic texts that build vocabulary, and support interpretive and evaluative responses to texts and the creation of written and multimodal texts. Practical strategies include language experience/digital language experience and a variety of drama and visual arts experiences.
