Penguin Teachers Academy has been offering a broad range of professional development courses throughout 2013 and we couldn’t help but mention this one.
Taking place in Melbourne on the 2nd of May, the PTA workshop
“… will allow participants the opportunity to hear Melina Marchetta speak about the use of her novels in a classroom setting and share a vast array of activities, ideas and assessment tools for use in your classroom or library.”
It’s a well known tale that Marchetta is a former English teacher who had to teach Looking for Alibrandi to her own students at one time. Also on the program is Laura Gordon, experienced teacher and academic in all things children’s literature. Who better to learn from?
