The Literacy Toolkit provides an understanding of literacy, its impact upon our schools and the practical and creative strategies we can use to ensure every pupil’s literacy skills progress rapidly in all subjects.
It embraces the fundamental concept that literacy skills need to be addressed by all policy makers, school leaders and teachers, irrespective of their specialism, for students to succeed and looks at the key issues and alternative ways, to address them in a creative and fun but purposeful manner.
This teacher’s resource is divided into four sections:
- Literacy, the importance of it and how we teach it
- Fifty generic practical strategies for improving literacy in the classroom
- Whole school strategies for literacy to flourish
- A selection of generic tools for assessing literacy.
