Savannah Dreams

Savannah Dreams

A delightful picture book, with a simple story about Savannah and her family as they go hunting in the bush. Over Sunday to Friday, the rest of the family discover lots of delicious bush tucker and count how many crabs or snakes or waterlily stems they have caught or collected, but Savannah finds only junk. That is until Sunday, when Savannah makes the greatest catch of all.

Professor Peter Sullivan

Peter Sullivan is currently Professor of Science, Mathematics and Technology Education, Monash University. He has extensive experience in research and teaching in teacher education. He was a member of the Social, Behavioural and Economic Sciences panel of the Australian Research Council College of Experts from 2005 to 2008, and was an editor of the Journal of Mathematics Teacher Education for 8 years. He is the immediate past President of the Australian Association of Mathematics Teachers and was the lead writer of the Australian Curriculum: Mathematics.

Peter is the author of the G.R.I.N. Intervention Program that has already been introduced in primary and secondary schools across Victoria, gaining support from regional networks, principals, teachers and students. This tutoring initiative has been received positively by students, tutors, and class teachers, and there is evidence of positive broader learning gains from the students. G.R.I.N. is recognised by the Victorian Institute of Teaching as accredited professional development.
