PETAA Leading with Literacy conference 2020: Reading to Write

Friday 6 and Saturday 7 November 2020 | Aerial Function Centre, Sydney

This conference will focus on the importance of the reading and writing connection, of ‘reading to write’ as part of literacy instruction.

  • What is the relationship between reading and writing (and talking and listening)?
  • What role does reading play in learning to write?
  • How can teachers integrate reading into the teaching of writing?

With expert speakers, inspiring keynotes, and integrated learning sessions broken into two streams — one for school leaders and one for classroom teachers — this conference will show teachers how to integrate reading into the teaching of writing to maximise student achievement and create stronger writers.
