Hi there, I have 30 years of teaching experience and have a passion for teaching, higher order thinking and picture books :) I have taught in primary, early childhood, adult literacy, numeracy, ESL and University. My passion is higher order thinking in the teaching of reading across the curriculum. http://ripperresources.blogspot.com.au/
I am an interactionist - I just love dialogic approaches that support higher order thinking, student generated questioning and deep comprehension of texts.
