Date: 20 May 2014          RSVP by 12 May
Location: Glenorchy

Intended Audience: Teachers

To improve student learning outcomes, we need to extend teachers' existing knowledge about language ('knowing what') and recognise and build on their pedagogic expertise to teach about language ('knowing how') across a range of teaching contexts and all learning areas.

Part A: Connecting ideas
In this workshop we will explore strategies for teaching students how to make connections between ideas through the use of simple, compound and complex sentences. Bev will make links to the Language strand of the Australian curriculum: English.

This is the first session of a two part professional learning opportunity so you might like to take note of the date for Part B.

Part B: Exploring the clause as a slice of experience, will be on Thursday 31 July 2014
(Enrolments for this session will be taken later in Term 2 - you do not need to attend both sessions.)
