Heather Zubek is a freelance writer and educator who has worked in Queensland, Western Australia and Victoria. She has also worked as a primary school teacher, teacher-librarian and GATEWAYs presenter. As a freelance writer, Heather has contributed to many publications including The Literature Base, Magpies Magazine and Good Reading Magazine. In her session she will be addressing the need to extend Gifted Readers - without turning them off reading for life. A book’s reading level is not necessarily the best gauge for what gifted readers should be reading.
This session will help teachers and teacher librarians generate ideas to extend and challenge their gifted readers. You’ll also play matchmaker with suitable books and readers along the way.
Janet Agostino is a Post Graduate Research student at UNSW and Co-ordinator of Diverse Learners at Our Lady of Good Counsel Forestville.
Janet will be presenting on her experience with Reading Programs to challenge and extend high potential learners.
