Dominic Wyse will be keynoting at this year’s Australian Association for the Teaching of English (AATE) and The Australian Literacy Educators’ Association (ALEA) conference in Perth on 8 – 11 July 2018. The conference theme is The Art of English: Language, Literature, Literacy, and the emphasis will be on how to harness and build students’ creativity as part of language, literacy and literary learning. The conference theme has three components:
- English as an Art – explore the power of our written and spoken language and consider the way we incorporate literary and cultural texts in our classrooms.
- English and the Arts – explore the relationships between English and literacy and the dramatic, performance, media and visual arts.
- English through the Arts – explore pedagogical approaches to teaching the English and literacy across the curriculum.
