The benefits of whole-school literacy plans


Luke promotes building a sustainable, coordinated whole-school literacy program across all the K-6 years of primary school to support all students and prevent any from 'falling between the cracks'. Recognising that NSW teachers are keenly aware of the Four Literacy Resources model, he builds on these and recommends developing a common dialogue; audits of student data, community and staff resources; and following his process for whole-school planning so that it becomes a cross-sectional study. He also recommends intellectual engagement and deflecting focus from preparation for state-wide testing. (In four parts, totalling 37 mins)
