This Professional Learning Opportunity will provide hands-on workshops by authors and teachers which will emphasize ways in which schools can include Asia in the English curriculum in primary and secondary classrooms. Students in our classrooms are encouraged to demonstrate an understanding, learn and apply values, employ skills and actively participate in local and global communities. Contemporary texts by Asian-Australian authors and texts set in an Asian context can provide access to a rich, deep understanding of an Asian perspective.Back to news page
