General Description

Are you an English teacher, and an avid reader? Ever been disappointed by the fact that your students would rather pick up a game console than a book? This course looks at ways to encourage the love of reading, and to teach students to be critical readers.
Traditional approaches to reading are not necessarily the best ways to do this – we need to look at new and exciting ways to approach texts in the class, and to new ways of communicating our expectations around reading to our students. Learn how to best share your passion for books and stimulate it in others.

Audience

This product is aimed at secondary English teachers, mainly across years 7 – 10.

About the team


Lauren Cook

Creator

Lauren Cook can’t remember a time when she didn’t want to teach. From the beginning of her career in 2001, she strove to understand what was at the basis of good teaching and learning.

Lauren spent many of her early years of teaching in brand new schools, where the exploration of best practice was at the forefront. Lauren undertook a variety of leadership roles from curriculum to professional learning to student management. She also joined the Faculty of Education at Deakin University to work with pre-service teachers.

In 2010, Lauren became an Assistant Principal, but missed her role in the classroom. She now wants to focus more on teaching and learning, and contributing to developing professional networks of teachers committed to best practice.
