In this project, PETAA collaborated with the Copyright Agency to produce a series of video conferences, connecting authors and illustrators with students and teachers in Australian Primary schools.
The units of work here link to and provide context for sessions of authors speaking to students in schools, and include direct links in lessons to the Australian Curriculum, and to other useful online resources. The comprehensive Authors in schools guide (updated in 2013 and 2014) also resulted from this project.
Membership makes what we do possible. You can unlock even more high-quality, evidence-based online resources as valuable as the Authors in schools units of work for as little as $100 per year as a digital member or $70 for students.

PETAA owes thanks to Michelle Michaels and her staff at Gymea Bay Public School (NSW) for their valuable contributions. Michelle expertly coordinated the video conferencing, while her teachers worked with PETAA to create teaching units around the video sessions.
