This specially designed workshop builds on core literacy skills to explore important concepts of research and critical literacy.

Students will begin to understand that not everything they read and see online is true, and that it can be tricky to distinguish between credible and unreliable information.

Students will:

  • understand why it's important to be a critical and creative thinker in today's world
  • apply core literacy skills in order to think critically about information
  • compare characteristics of reliable and unreliable websites.

This program is supported by the Percy Baxter Charitable Fund and Margaret Ross AM.

Suitable for students in years three to six.

For schools with an ICSEA ranking below 1000, this program is made possible by the generous support of Gandel Philanthropy.

Pauline Gandel Children’s Quarter, also supported by Gandel Philanthropy, is a purpose-built space for children and families to read, learn and play, with an associated program of activities.
