    CPL Creating Writers for Life K-6

    CPL Creating Writers for Life K-6

    Jenny Williams and Sandra Rowan discuss how teachers can create ‘writers for life’ in their K - 6 classrooms and encourage students to embrace writing and to enjoy it for their whole lives . . .
    “Our focus, as teachers, needs to be on the fact that it [writing] is a lifelong skill that all of us need to be able to use, throughout the course of our lives, in a variety of different ways. And, that is because writing is one aspect of communicating – as citizens in a global world, we need to be able to communicate by computer across to different countries; we need to be able to make ourselves understood in formal and informal settings. . .”

    “So how do we get them all engaged? It’s about student engagement. If we offer them choice even if it is as simple as A or B (‘so you could perhaps write an imaginative story about this aspect or you could write a persuasive’) . . . when they have to stop and decide (‘what do I do? Do I want to do this or do I want to do that?’), once they have made the decision they own it. It is really important. The brain research says giving them choice increases student engagement.”

    JPL Multicultural Education K-12

    JPL Multicultural Education K-12

    Mark Harris, Chantel Mirzai and Cathy Clift discuss multicultural education and how they have made their school a really inclusive place to be…

    “We have a really strong understanding of our context, and balance that by keeping abreast with research and evidence. So what we try to do, particularly as a leadership team, is engage strongly with what the evidence is telling us and consider the application of the evidence in our context.”

    “[We work from] this idea that all members of our school learning community - who we define as our beautiful students, our wonderful parents, our exceptionally hard-working teachers, and our leaders - are working together with this unrelenting pursuit of excellence and this feeling that every single member of our school learning community can achieve outstanding outcomes socially, emotionally and academically. And what we’ve done is to develop a vision, a mission and a school plan where every program and practice that exists is to develop collective community efficacy.”

    JPL Teaching EAL/D Students K-12

    JPL Teaching EAL/D Students K-12

    Kathy Rushton and Joanne Rossbridge make the case for specialist teachers for our EAL/D students…

    “Some students might be recognised as having support… if you go back to the research, students need about seven years to develop the English language, academically, to get to the level that a native speaker would get to. So, anyone who comes into our schools not speaking Standard Australian English, I think, deserves specialist support.

    … it is important for teachers to have as much information about the backgrounds of our students as possible… part of this is valuing what students may bring.”

Dr P00b ,

Quality content provided by authentic professionals

It's hard to go past getting helpful information in such an easy to use format. Love listening to the podcast whilst driving and I can use it as teacher identified accreditation hours. Well done to the NSW Teachers Federation for putting together a great little resource for teachers.
