Who We Are
We are a group of 400+ literacy educators from all around Australia.
Most of us work as teachers, principals, consultants in schools, or lecturers in teacher education. Many of us are authors of children’s books and teacher reference books. We are sought as speakers at state, national and international conferences. Our members include presidents and past-presidents of ALEA (Australian Literacy Educators Association), PETAA (Primary English Teaching Association, Australia) and AATE (the Australian Association for the Teaching of English).
We believe that parents deserve accurate information about literacy standards and literacy teaching and learning.
We aim to provide information, and counteract misinformation.
