Totally passionate about teaching and learning and the teaching of reading across the curriculum. My major interests are in higher order thinking, the teaching of reading comprehension, and critical literacy. I have taught in primary, early childhood, adult literacy, numeracy, ESL and now in pre-service teacher education at University. http://ripperresources.blogspot.com.au/
I love dialogic approaches, collaborative thinking and strategies that support higher order thinking, student-generated questioning and the deep comprehension of texts.
Yet to be added
Currently studying PhD - rigorous pedagogies in the teaching of reading comprehension across the curriculum.
