ST PETERS GIRLS' SCHOOL, STONYFELL RD, STONYFELL
The University of Sydney in partnership with UniSA, ALEA, EChO, Cue Learning and Lisa Burman Consulting is holding a symposium titled, ’The Role of Phonics in Learning to be Literate’ with Professor Pauline Harris, Professor Robyn Ewing and consultant David Hornsby on Saturday 24th November 9.30 to 1pm at St Peters Girls’ School, Stonyfell Rd, Stonyfell. The symposium will firstly highlight the way key national and state policy drivers relate to educational and social inclusion for all learners in SA, and then explore why particular strategies e.g. ‘phonics instruction’ are so foregrounded by policy makers in the light of current research. The session will conclude with the expectations of the Australian Curriculum around meaning making in order to teach phonics explicitly and systematically. Implications for the classroom will be discussed. Cost: $110. Discounts apply for members of ALEA and EChO members: $44 individual or $55 institutional. Registration here or contact Phil Callen for more information here.
