Digging Deeper

into the Pedagogy of Bookmaking 

with Matt Glover


Lisa Burman Consultants is very excited to bring Matt Glover to Adelaide

for his return visit after a highly successful tour in 2017!



Those who were lucky enough to hear Matt speak in 2017, left the room buzzing with renewed enthusuasim for the pedagogy of bookmaking! In fact, the buzz continues with many educators still sharing their learning from Matt on the day. 

Based on the wonderful experience last year, we just HAD to invite Matt back for an encore! 

Lisa Burman Consultants and Matt Glover are forming a close professional relationship as we both see many connections between our values, philosophies and image of the child. Future collaborations are in the pipeline. In the meantime, don't miss your chance to be inspired, challenged and supported in your work with young writers. 

Although this Masterclass is aimed towards working with our younger writers, if you're teaching Middle and Upper Primary, there will be plenty of gems for you to take away too. 

Matt’s work is one of the key inspirations and influences on our philosophy and pedagogy of Bookmaking with young writers aged 3-8 years. He is the co-author, with Katie Wood Ray, of one of the professional texts that first got us excited about this literacy approach – Already Ready. Matt’s writing has continued to inspire us since then. We connect so much with Matt’s work because he begins from a holistic view of the child and believes, like us, that every child is a competent learner and capable of growing as a writer.



This special Masterclass is the perfect extension to our Introduction to Bookmaking Mini Courses and will be designed specifically to build on Matt's Empowering Young Writers Day in 2017. Matt will lead us to deepen our reflections, build stronger understandings and to enrich our pedagogy with his insight and experience working side by side with young writers.  

In Matt's words...


"Young children are capable of incredible thinking, which can be seen in their writing when they view themselves as writers and when adults honor children’s approximations of writing.  Using authentic video clips and writing samples, participants will examine the importance of key beliefs such as vision, choice, honoring approximations and nudging development."


Please note, this will not be an introductory day so is best suited to educators who have experience with Writing Workshop and Bookmaking in Preschools/Kindergartens and Primary schools.


Registration includes Morning Tea and Light Lunch.

Please indicate dietary requirements on registration. 

Please note: registration is strictly with credit card through Eventbrite.

Manual invoicing is not available for this event.
