Making Literacy a living thing at Dixons Kings
The Seven Processes of Literacy
- expressing through multiple symbol systems
- The incorporation of literacy into the content areas
- The enrichment of learning
- The development of independent learners
Over the next few weeks there will be a number of exciting events to kickstart the new literacy approach.
You might ask 'Why the focus on content area literacy???' That is because in all content areas teachers use techniques that involve reading, writing, listening, speaking, viewing and visually presenting. Therefore, we are already incorporating literacy strategies. The difference with the new approach is that there will be a systematic 'joined-up' approach to what we already do; thereby reaping the greatest benefits for students.
