Make it Real: Reading and writing non-fiction
Presented by Linda Hoyt
Friday 20 March 9:00am-3:00pm at Tattersall's Park Function Centre

Learning that occurs in an atmosphere where learner talk, shared thinking, and collaboration abounds is learning that encourages vocabulary development, enhances engagement, and deepens comprehension. Engagement, motivation, and a sense of wonder make excellent partners, especially when they are consciously applied across the curriculum. In this session, the focus will be on multi-modal strategies you can implement immediately to support and accelerate informational learning.
