With the arrival of Year 7 learners in Queensland high schools in 2015, English teachers have been presented with the exciting opportunity to develop and renew our knowledge and understanding of the learning needs of the MIllennium Generation. While new school structures may have ben built and new learning spaces created to accommodate their arrival, we know that it is the pedagogy, curriculum and assessment employed in our English classrooms that is the real key to engaging and motivating young adolescent readers, writers, speakers and thinkers. This seminar aims to provide an opportunity for us to share our ideas, resources and experience of teaching English in the middle years (Years 5 - 9).
