October 24 11am MELBOURNE TIME
A Knowledge-Rich Curriculum
“It’s not so much that particular bits of information are vital in and of themselves – although some certainly are. It’s more that people need to have enough facts in their heads to have what one commentator has called a ‘knowledge party’ – a bunch of accumulated associations that will enable them to absorb, retain, and analyse new information. Education certainly shouldn’t end with facts. But if it doesn’t begin there, many students will never acquire the knowledge and analytical abilities they need to thrive both in school and in life.”
Natalie Wexler, The Knowledge Gap (2020)
In this session, Lyn will talk about the importance of teaching knowledge as well as skills, both in a school and clinical setting. She will demonstrate what she and her staff do at Lifelong Literacy to help students build knowledge as well as catch up in reading and writing.
First Session: Thursday October 22 5:30pm-6:30pm MELBOURNE TIME (register for that one here)
Second Session: Saturday October 24 11am-12pm MELBOURNE TIME
Twice a week, Lyn Stone will do a live, 60 minute session on a particular topic via Zoom.
The cost is AUD$30 + GST and will include a presentation, some handouts and a Q&A session.
The first meeting will be at 5:30pm on Thursdays, with a repeat session at 11am on Saturdays (MELBOURNE AUSTRALIA TIME).
Both will be live. Due to time constraints, recordings will not be available afterwards. If you miss a session, we will refund you or place you in a repeat of that session, should we decide to repeat.
Topics will vary, and Lyn will also take subject requests, but here is the agenda for October, click on the ones you like:
