This Mini Course has a specific focus on working with 3 - 8 year old writers in

Kindergarten and Early Years of School.

Early Childhood Educators understand that young children bring with them a wealth of literacy understandings and competencies as they begin Kindergarten and Reception. The Book-making approach to literacy values and honours children’s prior learning, their cultural competence and their dispositions for learning. It uses these to drive learning deeper and to create a culture of thinking, talking and noticing about books. It values the intellectual quality of mark-making as an essential component of being a writer.

A book-making approach not only sees children from this competent lens, it empowers children to see themselves as competent writers. The approach challenges pedagogical practices that see children as empty learners; who are needy because they know so little.

We have faciliated workshops about the Pedagogy of Bookmaking for over 12 years - throughout South Australia, in New South Wales, USA, Canada and Shanghai! This rich pedagogy engages children in language and literacy, motivates them to become deeply involved in their learning and also excites educators when they see children learning to their potential.

Amanda Bartram

Amanda is a passionate and innovative early years educator, who has recently embraced the ‘wonderful messiness’ of consultancy work with Lisa Burman Consultants.


In her previous role at Blair Athol North B-7 School, Amanda developed a model of ‘doing school differently’ with a group of children in years 2 to 7 in the Red 5 Studio project. In this project, educators listened and responded to children in authentic ways; providing possibilities for engagement, increased wellbeing, a sense of community connectedness and a deep commitment to personalised learning – including children planning their own learning every day! 


Amanda lives her belief that children are competent and capable – a view which underpins her daily work with children, their families and other educators.  


Amanda facilitates professional learning in areas such as: Engaging Learning Environments, Bookmaking & Writer’s Notebooks, Nature Play, Loose Parts & Blocks; and Making & Tinkering.
