A VALBEC (Victorian Adult Literacy and Basic Education Council) Professional Learning session presented by Anna Fishley.

VALBEC presents another great Professional Learning Session presented by Anna Fishley.

The first part of this session examines current research and recommendations for teaching reading and spelling to beginner adult learners, focusing on the EAL classroom.  It incorporates research into structured phonics- based instruction and strategies to enhance learner memory.

The second part is application-focused, with a demonstration of a reading and spelling program for adult beginner learners in the EAL classroom.  The program is user-friendly for teachers and empowers learners by systematically building up their literacy skills.  The program empowers learners both inside the classroom and through exercises they can do independently at home.

Participants will come away with strategies for teaching foundational reading and spelling skills as well as ideas for creating their own classroom resources.

Anna has been teaching EAL to adult migrants for 17 years and prior to that, worked for 18 years as a psychologist in the field of educational and developmental psychology.  She combines her knowledge of cognitive processes involved in learning with her passion for teaching engaging evidence- based EAL lessons.   

We look forward to seeing you there.VALBEC PL Forums Team
