Connecting Literacy Teacher Book 3


Connecting Literacy targets whole-school literacy improvement for Secondary students and teachers. 

What is Connecting Literacy? 

A developmental literacy program for Secondary schools, including: 

  • 3 student folios
  • 3 teacher books
  • 100s of video lessons hosted by literacy consultant, Hayley Harrison.

Who is Connecting Literacy for? 

Secondary school students and teachers who: 

  • are embarking on whole-school literacy improvement, OR 
  • integrate literacy skills in the English classroom, OR 
  • attend a timetabled literacy block.

How does Connecting Literacy work? 

With cumulative skill development over three books where students: 

  • Model: read and annotate an ‘anchor text’ – an authentic piece of student writing 
  • Practise: complete units of work in class or as homework with video support from Hayley Harrison, literacy coach 
  • Apply: draft their own text directly into the writing pages included in each student folio.

Why do you need Connecting Literacy? 

  • Flexibility: Use the series over three consecutive years or use the student folios in parallel to differentiate, support and extend. 
  • Support: Video lessons, teacher books with answers and suggested programs, a literacy skills ‘toolkit’ and on-demand P.D. sessions will support experienced and out-of-discipline teachers alike. The digital download file contains learning ladders for each unit of the book and additional resources.
  • Evidence: Student folios are designed as a learning pathway with built-in student reflection, metacognition and formative assessment (with developmental rubrics). 
  • Whole-school: Use Connecting Literacy to underpin your whole school literacy plan and create a common metalanguage around literacy.

When you purchase a Connecting Literacy teacher book, you gain access to a suite of online material, including:

  • over 60 videos recorded by Hayley Harrison: every lesson in each book has an accompanying video, where the author provides more information about the particular topic
  • information on how to support handwriting development for adolescents
  • activating prior knowledge activities
  • an information sheet about conjunctions, which can be used as a classroom poster.
