  4. Literacy Across Learning What do we mean by ‘being literate’? Literacy Toolkit Activity 1: Voice on the table In a maximum of 30 seconds, what did you think of when you saw the title What do we mean by: ‘Being Literate’?

  5. Literacy Across Learning What do we mean by ‘being literate’? Literacy Toolkit • Activity 2: How’s it going? • Independently, using a previous plan, highlight where literacy learning has been an explicit focus. • Using a different colour, now highlight where literacy actually features in the learning (but may not have been your primary focus). • Are we missing an opportunity?

  6. Literacy Across Learning What do we mean by ‘being literate’? Literacy Toolkit • Activity 3: New Learning • “The literacy experiences and outcomes promote the development of skills in using language, particularly those that are used regularly by everyone in their everyday lives . . . They reflect the need for young people to be able to communicate effectively both face-to-face and in writing through an increasing range of media . . . They recognise the importance of listening and talking and of effective collaborative working in the development of thinking and in learning.” • CfE: literacy across learning – principles and practice • Why is it challenging to teach listening and talking?

  7. Literacy Across Learning What do we mean by ‘being literate’? Literacy Toolkit • “Our ability to use language lies at the centre of the development and expression of our emotions, our thinking, our learning and our sense of personal identity . . . • Literacy is fundamental to all areas of learning, as it unlocks access to the wider curriculum . . . • Every teacher in each area of the curriculum needs to find opportunities to encourage young people to explain their thinking, debate their ideas and read and write at a level which will help them to develop their language skills further.” • Building the Curriculum 1 • Can you think of a learning experience, in any curricular area, which does not include literacy?

  8. Literacy Across Learning What do we mean by ‘being literate’? Literacy Toolkit • Key points • How should our teaching take more account of listening and talking? • Shift the teaching focus of a lesson to listening and talking • Plan with listening and talking in mind - using specific learning intentions and success criteria • Use debate, expert panels, question time, hot seating and role play activities to challenge and extend thinking • Oral outcomes rather than written outcomes • What makes a good listener/talker? – Revisit: looks like, sounds like, feels like to generate success criteria • Use audio/visual texts – both fiction and non-fiction

  9. Literacy Across Learning What do we mean by ‘being literate’? Literacy Toolkit Activity 4: Personal Action Planning Over the coming weeks, look for opportunities to prioritise listening and talking in your teaching. Choose one or two elements that you are going to explore and evaluate. Bring back your findings to the next session
