This blog will be an online discussion platform for use in our ‘Teachers Into Literacy’ PD. Part of the requirement of the course will be for you to add posts to the discussion forum with reflections on what you have learnt and how you have applied new ideas to your teaching practice. Posts do not need to be exhaustive, maybe just a couple of paragraphs.
