Anticipating the Annual A.L.E.A Conference in Darwin, Australia July 9-12

I’m keenly anticipating this year’s ALEA (Australian Literacy Educators Association) Annual National Conference in Darwin. The conference takes place in the Darwin Convention Centre, Darwin City and runs from July 9-12. The theme of the conference is, 'Anticipating new territories-building strong minds, places and futures.'

I am fortunate to be presenting two workshops during the conference.

Creating Voice and Choice In Writing, Using The Writer's Notebook
This workshop will explore practical ways to make writing instruction authentic and engaging for students using writer’s notebooks as a resource. I will share a range of notebooks as practical examples of living the writing life.

Writing Under the Influence of Patterns in Poetry
In this workshop I will be promoting the power of poetry to engage young writers and ways in which structural patterns support inexperienced poets to engage in meaningful poetry experiences.

Ralph Fletcher

I am also looking forward to attending a number of scheduled sessions at the conference, including a couple of sessions featuring Ralph Fletcher, who is a keynote speaker at the conference.

If you are in Darwin at this time. Place feel free to drop by these sessions.
