WHAT IS CONNECTING LITERACY?

A developmental literacy program for secondary schools, including:

  • three student folios: $32.50 each
  • three teacher books: $109.50 each
  • hundreds 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
  • 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
