Description

'Immerse, Inspire, Imagine: Supporting Students as Readers and Writers'

Join us for a full-day conference that explores how texts can be used by teachers and teacher librarians to engage students' imaginations, and immerse and inspire them to read and write. Specific attention will be given to the operation of the conference theme in both the primary and secondary stages, with reference made to the National Literacy Progressions.

In the Australian Curriculum, a text is defined as a means for communication. Text forms and conventions enable effective communication with a variety of audiences for a range of purposes. Texts can be written, spoken or multimodal, and in print or digital/online forms. Multimodal texts combine language in a range of communication forms, such as print text, visual images, soundtrack and spoken word as found in film or computer presentation media (ACARA, 2018, National Literacy Learning Progressions).

The Literacy Continuum (ACARA, 2018) incorporates two overarching processes: "Comprehending texts through listening, reading and viewing" and "Composing texts through speaking, writing and creating." These processes are the focus of this conference. Delegates will hear about the latest developments in textual forms, such as Dr Khyiah Angel's use of augmented reality in her latest YA novel, while Dr Cathy Sly will address the development of critical thinking skills in secondary students through the close analysis of graphic novels.

Teacher librarian Kylie Lawrence will share her collaborative work with teachers of STEAM in Year 4, and Paula Madigan will consider the key role of teacher librarians in supporting the new Stage 6 English Syllabus. Megan Perry, Manager of the State Library's Learning Services, will enlighten all delegates about the way in which the Library's physical and digital collections can be used to immerse and inspire students to read and write creatively, while teacher librarian Elizabeth Martin will share strategies with primary teachers to inspire reading in students.

A panel discussion will present the experiences of three teacher librarians who have genrefied their collections, and the day will be wrapped up by Dr Erica Southgate, who will offer insight into her exploration of enhancing literacy through technology.

Participants are encouraged Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) to this event. Complimentary wifi is provided by the SLNSW.
