Thanks so much for the really engaging workshop. The students loved it! I saw a number of them at the end of the day, and they were 'buzzing' from some of the ideas. I know quite a few of them really well, and it is remarkable that they could tell me so much about Marco Polo after spending just 5 minutes on the topic 6 hours earlier! We will certainly be continuing with some of these ideas, and I would recommend that session to anybody. Clearly the principles would work with our HAPS when learning quotes for a literature exam.
Natalie was lively and engaging, staff and students really enjoyed the literacy session. They learnt plenty of skills for improving literacy, planning, and comprehension. Definitely beneficial for our target students.
