Registrations now open for 2016 Excellence in Classroom Teaching Conference

28 Jun 2016



Registrations are now open for Guildford Grammar School's second Excellence in Classroom Teaching Conference, for primary and secondary school teachers in Perth. Last year's conference was a great success, attended by over 100 primary and secondary school teachers from across the state.

Perth teachers are often frustrated by the lack of opportunities to enjoy quality professional development focusing on sound classroom practice which they can use immediately with their own students.

To fill this gap, our conference presents a wide range of relevant workshops, sharing strategies and resources that can be taken back and used immediately in your classroom.  Each delegate will have the opportunity to participate in four workshops of their choice.  Popular sessions will be held twice to ensure as many delegates as possible are able to attend the workshops of their choice.

Some of this year's workshops include:

Reading intervention with a twist
Engaging boys in the classroom
Catering for difference
Early Childhood - learning through play
Service Learning
The importance of being little
Making fiction fun
Integrating drama into the classroom
Teaching kids to touch type
Puzzling about puzzle-based learning
How to take a good photograph
Teaching technology to primary and secondary students
Assessing prior learning
Extending capable science students under the Australian Curriculum
Small Business Project
Building a great primary science program
and many more!

The conference costs $150 per qualified teacher and $100 for trainee teachers and includes morning tea, lunch, afternoon tea and networking drinks and nibbles at the conclusion of the day.

The full program is available by clicking here.  Please read through the workshops on offer before proceeding to our payment and registration page.
