Live Webinar: Educational Equality through scaffolding

Explore effective ways to scaffold the literacy of students so they can fully participate in the Australian Curriculum with Carmel Leahy through her insightful case study. In 2017, a high school class at Yiyili Aboriginal Community School prepared for a trip to Canberra using the classic text Animal Farm by George Orwell. The literacy levels of the students ranged from non-readers to almost mainstream levels of attainment. Learn about the scaffolded literacy program Carmel used to ensure the work was sufficiently differentiated for all students to participate fully and learn the literacy skill set they needed to explore the field of mainstream government and politics.
