The focus of this workshops is to develop understanding and strategies for participants teaching English and History in Stages 3 and 4.
We will focus on viewing texts from a critical literacy perspective in order to select a range of texts representing a variety of perspectives. Texts will be considered in terms of contestability and empathetic understanding as well as how they develop and challenge understandings about contemporary issues and the past. To support students in engaging in critical response to texts teachers will analyse and identify language features that can be deconstructed to support critical analysis and in particular questioning of perspectives based on context, author background, date and place of publication.
