Program Details

This session is delivered as an in
school interactive workshop that uses stimulating examples to help students (and their teachers) to understand
their thinking processes through the use of the Models of Engaged Learning and Teaching (MELT). The session
is designed to maximise student engagement early in their work towards the Exhibition, yet can be adapted for lower year levels.

Professional development for sta that connects with ‘ATL Skills for the Primary Years Programme’ is also available. Please contact Rebecca Hammond
