This resource including a recording and the PPT for the following workshop:
This year, students will be sitting a new GAT which will also serve as an assessment of their literacy skills. All VCE, VET and senior VCAL students will be required to complete the GAT. This workshop will explain the literacy aspects of the GAT in Section A – the writing and reading tasks. It will show teachers how we can equip students with thinking routines to understand and plan pieces for the writing task and identify answers for the reading tasks. It will also suggest practice task schools can complete with students in Term 3 to familiarise them with the GAT and to practise thinking routines they can use to complete the task effectively.
