INTRODUCTION TO BOOKMAKING   (IN PERSON) – TERM 3, 2022

This Mini Course has a specific focus on working with 3-8 year old writers in Kindergarten and Early Years of School.

Registrations close Monday 1 August, 2022, unless sold out earlier

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

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.

9:30am-3:00pm 

Saturday 20 August, 2022

Saturday 24 September, 2022
