Australia and Asia: Global Words in the Primary Classroom

Australia and Asia: Global Words in the Primary Classroom
Presented by ROD YULE moderated by JENNIFER ASHA
This three-part video presentation by educator, teacher and global citizenship advocate Rod Yule focuses on teaching persuasion texts, multimodal literacy, and reading comprehension strategies in the primary classroom, within the context of a global perspective.
The course provides learning opportunities in relation to:
* Strategies for teaching persuasive texts using multimodal literacy and global issues.
* The examination of three Global Words units of work with a focus on comprehension strategies of prior knowledge, prediction, visualisation, inference and summarisation.
* Exploring ways to help students use persuasive texts as informed and active global citizens.
The course links to the Australian Curriculum learning areas for English and Humanities and Social Sciences (Geography) Years 3-6, and relates especially to the cross curriculum priority Asia and Australia’s Engagement with Asia.
