Beginning The School Literacy Year: Some Notes For Teachers

(2 customer reviews)


It is surely every teacher’s desire and goal to seek to enable and create success for their students in the classroom. 

The beginning of the new school year can be daunting for students, as well as teachers, with so many new faces, curriculum changes, excitement and a plethora of other distractions.

With regard to literacy goals, it is important to establish a clear understanding from the outset with your students.

You should aim, within the first fortnight of the new school year, to communicate clearly with your students that: 

  • ‘Our job during the year is to become the best readers and writers we can be’.
  • ‘Reading and writing can be fun as well as challenging’.
  • ‘I need to work with you to find out what you’re already good at and what you need to work on so that I can help you’.

In this respect, this document’s aim is to assist teachers by providing typical questions they can ask themselves when preparing for the school literacy year.
