ALEA recognises the critical role literacy plays in learning and communicating in all curriculum areas, and for effective participation in society.

    • Invitation to contribute to an ALEA title on teaching poetry

      ALEA individual and institutional members are invited to contribute to a special ALEA occasional publication in 2016 about the teaching of poetry. The publication will include an exciting anthology of poems for children from some very playful and skillful Australian poets as well as a set of 300 word vignettes from those who work with poetry in the classroom.  To help get you started, Sue Hamilton-Smith (ALEA Qld State Director) has already penned a 300 word vignette about the ‘Poetry Treasure Hunt’. We’re not after lesson plans per se; we’re after 300 word vignettes that *inspire* teachers about a wide variety of approaches to teaching poetry.
