Event schedule for the 4th June.
9.30 am - Join us in person with Dr Pamela Snow as she presents 'Oral Language skills and reading success: How the Simple View of Reading supports primary and secondary classroom success'
In this presentation, Professor Snow will consider why reading is fundamentally important for all students’ academic success and mental health in the primary and secondary years. She will review some important aspects of reading instruction history that have resulted in the perpetuation of mixed messages for teachers into the 21st century. Professor Snow will outline the importance of using theory to guide practice, using the Simple View of Reading (Gough & Tunmer, 1986) as a worked example. She will critique Balanced Literacy and propose strategies for teachers wanting to make better use of reading science evidence in their classrooms, at both primary and secondary levels.
11 am - Morning tea
11.30 - LSTAQ AGM
