About this product
- DescriptionIn their new book, the winners of the TES National Award for Outstanding Literacy Initiative share the secrets behind school improvement through raising literacy levels across the curriculum. Graham Tyrer and Patrick Taylor draw on the successful literacy initiative that raised their school from good to outstanding, as well as their work in three UK schools with a range of Ofsted ratings. The 54 practical strategies are grouped into beginning, embedding, sustaining and evaluating stages and include ideas such as choosing the literacy focus of your school, involving students as literacy leaders and creating a 'Litbox'. Each entry details the literacy outcomes of the strategy, provides step by step guidance for implementing and sustaining it and includes feedback and tips for staff and students who have used it. The Literacy Leader's Toolkit is a must read for all literacy coordinators and leaders who want to implement a whole-school programme , as well as for those teachers who are determined to improve the literacy provision in their classroom.
