The Literacy Leader’s role is to plan and deliver a whole school literacy strategy targeted to meet the literacy needs of our students.
At a whole school level, PD is provided to staff, focusing on the literacy needs of specific Key Learning Areas. Approaches to the teaching of reading comprehension and vocabulary provide the basis of this PD, with strategies suitable to improving outcomes for boys embedded into sessions.
Working with the English KLA, the Literacy Leader delivers regular PD each term to enhance teacher understanding of best practice in explicitly teaching reading comprehension, writing and grammar. All sessions provide teachers with knowledge and strategies to use in every lesson. The Literacy Leader observes teachers in action, providing an opportunity for teachers to receive regular feedback about their practice and discuss future planning.
