NEW TRAINING COURSE FROM JUST IMAGINE

IMPROVING LITERACY IN SUBJECT DISCIPLINES

Reading is a large part of learning in any subject, and it’s vital for 21st-century literacy that we hone children’s skills so that they can read efficiently and critically and derive pleasure
from their reading. The approaches covered in our Reading Across the Curriculum course will:
• Improve general literacy
• Develop subject disciplinary literacy skills
• Increase reading in curriculum subjects
• Enhance critical literacy, which is essential for distinguishing fact and opinion, bias and prejudice, and real news from fake news.

This training is suitable for all primary teachers but to gain maximum benefit we suggest that an English lead, Science lead and a member of the senior leadership team would be the ideal. The cost for this course is for 1 – 3 teachers and includes a scheme of work and the book on which it is based as an exemplar of the approach.
