Date: Saturday 20 May 2023

Registration: 8.30 am for an 8.45 start.

Sound Wall Workshop & Networking Lunch:

When students enter school, the brain is already using a sophisticated language system and a sophisticated visual system. However, when students learn to read, the brain needs incorporate use of the visual word form area, the ‘letter box’, to develop a ‘speech to print’ pathway. Phonemes need to be mapped to graphemes and graphemes need to be mapped to phonemes. This two-hour workshop will delve into the use of a sound wall to facilitate phonological and orthographic coding.

After the two-hour Sound Wall Workshop spend quality networking time with like-minded people, whilst enjoying a Gourmet Working Style Lunch. 

Bring your favourite teaching resource, book, and research article to share.

Venue: Rydges Adelaide, Skyline Events Room, on the 6th floor, which features floor-to-ceiling windows with views over the Southern Parklands.

Inclusions: Arrival Tea and coffee, morning tea, and Gourmet Working Style Lunch

Half Day - Time: 8.45 to 1.15 pm

Syllable Division Workshop & Afternoon Tea:

The work of Berninger and Richards looked at fast and slow mapping that is required for reading. Requiring a longer learning period, slow mapping involves the understanding of syllable types. Most students acquire mapping in R, 1 & 2. However, some students will require longer, explicit instruction, even in the high school years. In this two-hour workshop we will examine syllable division, and how to teach it explicitly across multiple year levels.

Venue: Rydges Adelaide, Skyline Events Room, on the 6th floor, which features floor-to-ceiling windows with views over the Southern Parklands.

Half Day – 2 pm to 4.30 pm

$65 per person
