Ralph Pirozzo:  Ralph Pirozzo believes schools need to create engaging and challenging thinking classrooms so that children’s learning will flourish. He believes that the teacher librarian’s role in this process is vital and will show us how to develop planning matrices for COGS and other units of work. These matrices combine Bloom’s Taxonomy and Gardner’s Multiple Intelligence Theory to provide planning tools that cater for all learning styles and abilities. Much of his work reinforces the Quality Teaching model and Gifted and Talented education. He will provide us with a number of graphic organisers and samples of units that have already been created. Bring along a thumb drive if you would like a digital copy.

In addition there will be a sharing session for both Primary and Secondary teacher-librarians. Primary people are asked to bring along details of useful websites or links for research activities as well as ideas for promoting literature in your school.
