The prize winning Teaching with Intent 2: Literature-based literacy teaching and learning is the second of two books produced as a product of a PETAA Research Grant.
‘Why another book about literacy pedagogy? Because now, more than ever, we need to be inclusive of all students: we need to draw in those students at risk of being relegated to the margins of classrooms and of learning. And we need to do this in a way that is authentic to ourselves as teachers, communicating our joy of literature, of reading, writing and telling stories.’
With many students falling behind their peers, struggling to decode and draw inferential meanings from text, Teaching with Intent 2 describes a highly effective approach to teaching language and literacy that’s anchored in storytelling. Parkin and Harper developed their version of this literature-based program over years of professional practice in the classroom with marginalised students.
It involves a sequence of pedagogic strategies that allow teachers to carefully build their students' knowledge about text, language, reading and writing — thoroughly explained in this book, with practical guidance to help you apply the ideas successfully in your own classroom.
Teaching with Intent 2 follows Parkin and Harper’s previous PETAA title, Teaching with Intent 1: Scaffolding academic language (2018).
