PD Opportunity: Teaching poetry in the senior years

Poetry can be a stumper for many teachers so why not take advantage of Australian Poetry’s professional development?

Australian Poetry presents: Teaching poetry in the senior years with Elizabeth Campbell.

These workshops are designed to make teachers confident and excited about teaching poetry in years 11 and 12. Using the poetry set on the VCE Unit 4 exam, Elizabeth Campbell will work with participants to develop a ‘thinking curriculum’ approach to poetry, focussing on higher-order thinking.

Teachers will leave the workshops equipped with extensive notes and resources on the poets studied, and practical skills for teaching poetry in the senior classroom. Suitable for experienced and beginning teachers of VCE.

Elizabeth Campbell is both a teacher and one of Australia’s most exciting younger poets.
