SOLD OUT: THERE ARE NO MORE PLACES LEFT ON THIS COURSE. NEXT ROUND LAUNCHES ON SEPTEMBER 12TH. PLEASE REGISTER HERE FOR ONLINE, ON-DEMAND WORKSHOP.

Language Arts with linguist Lyn Stone is an 18 hour workshop on developing literacy with students whose phonemic awareness and phonic knowledge have readied them for the next level.

Comprising six comprehensive modules, alongside tried and true teaching methods to get everyone excelling, this hands-on, engaging workshop is designed to raise teacher capacity to ensure mastery of the principles of structured literacy for all students.

Language Arts helps a teacher use up to date, research-based information about how we learn. It then helps them to apply that knowledge to imparting vital knowledge about how English writing works.

The Language Arts approach has a clear scope and sequence from Foundation-6 and dovetails well with any high quality systematic synthetic phonics program.

It is laid out using a direct, explicit approach with worked examples and incorporates robust teaching techniques designed to reduce cognitive load and increase retention.

It comes with resources and equipment for immediate application in the classroom.

The key topics are:

1. Learning how we learn:

What has science taught us about how to make changes in long-term memory?

First live webinar on this topic: Wednesday July 29th 1-2:30 pm (Melbourne time)

Second live webinar on this topic: Saturday August 1st 11am-12:30 pm (Melbourne time)

2. The simple views of reading and writing:

Program format:

Language Arts with Lyn Stone will be offered as a hybrid online Open Learning course, with separate opportunities to attend live webinars. The webinar schedule will be flexible, in that there will be two offerings of the same webinar so that all participants have the opportunity to attend.

The content will be delivered over a six week cycle; one for each key topic. It will look something like this:

WEEK ONE

  1. Participants are enrolled on an Open Learning course platform and granted access to Topic One: Learning How We Learn. This contains pdf documents, videos, quizzes, links to further information and resources, and forums to help familiarise participants with the material.
  2. During that week, there will be two opportunities to join Lyn Stone live to hear her deliver the main content. During that time, there will be ample Q&A as well as opportunities to share with one another as a community of practice. Live webinars are scheduled to last one hour, with 30 minutes question and collaboration time afterwards.
  3. The webinars will be recorded and uploaded to Open Learning for exclusive access to participants. So even if you happen to miss a live webinar that week, you can still access it. You are not restricted on how many live webinars you can attend that week either, so you are welcome at both if repetition is your desire.

Repeat for all six weeks.

Upon completion, attendees will receive a certificate of attendance for 18 hours of professional development.

INCLUDED MATERIALS:

  • A K-6 scope and sequence, encompassing when and how to teach spelling, morphology and syntax.
  • Digital downloads of each element manual, containing scripts, lesson plans and high quality worksheets and activities.
  • Video demonstrations of lessons.

IMPORTANT NOTE RE THIS COURSE AFTER SEPTEMBER 2020

The live webinars above will be recorded and edited to preserve privacy of all attendees. After the final live webinar on September 5th, the course will then be offered generally as an on-demand, non-live, pre-recorded course for the rest of 2020. This will launch on September 12th, to give first participants enough time to see the final webinar.

First participants will be permitted to stay on the course for three months after September 5th.
