In Episode 20, experienced author and literacy consultant Mike Dumbleton joins Phil and Sharon Callen to share his story and insights.
Mike is a writer and Literacy Consultant. He has worked in South Australian high schools, New York City schools and as a Literacy Curriculum Officer for the South Australian Department for Education. In addition to children’s books, he has written a range of educational texts.
Part of his interest in writing stems from the fact that his grandfather was a local poet in an Oxfordshire village in England, who regularly recited his poems to the family, with or without requests!
In this discussion, Mike shares his wonderful children’s books and talks about better ways to use children’s literature in the classroom, innovative writing, other ways to leverage literature as well as many other insights from his story and experiences.
