Student Writing Project for the National Year of Reading seminar

In this workshop, teachers workshopped ways of engaging learners' interest to write about their experiences of reading/ learning to read. The Council is hosting a seminar on Thursday 21 June, 5.30-6.30 at the University of Technology, Sydney, where teachers can workshop ways of supporting their learners through the writing process. Whether you are participating in the National Year of Reading project or not, this seminar will be an excellent opportunity to share different approaches and challenges of teaching writing.

A Council project for the National Year Of Reading

To celebrate National Year of Reading, the NSW Adult Literacy & Numeracy Council invited your learners to share their stories of reading. We will give a voice to these reflections by publishing a book of student writing. 
The April 26 seminar led by experienced adult literacy teachers workshopped ways of supporting learners to reflect and write about their experiences and journeys in reading. Participants added to the range of 'prompts' teachers can use to engage their students in the project, a procedures sheet and a coversheet for submitting students' stories.
