Lorraine McDonald is an Honorary Fellow in the School of Education at Australian Catholic University, Sydney. Her research has examined the role of language in the teaching of literature and changing ways of thinking about language, literature and literacy. Lorraine has taught programs in Literacy Education, Literature for Children and Young Adults, Linguistics and ESL in Australia, USA and UK.
Her new online course demonstrates how students can be guided to 'actively notice' how quality texts are constructed and how to follow these mentor texts to make relevant choices for their own writing purposes.
Lorraine McDonald is a PETAA Life Member and author of our best selling title A Literature Companion for Teachers.
