Literacy and English

 

The development of literacy skills plays an important role in all learning.

 

Introductory statements:

I want to

  • engage with and create a wide range of texts in different media, taking advantage of the opportunities offered by ICT (information and communications technology)
  • develop my understanding of what is special, vibrant and valuable about my own and other cultures and their languages
  • explore the richness and diversity of language, how it can affect me and the wide range of ways in which I and others can be creative
  • extend and enrich my vocabulary through listening, talking, watching and reading

Example from Experiences and Outcomes
I can show my understanding of what I listen to or watch by commenting, with evidence, on the content and form of short and extended texts.

See LIT 3-07a (Responsibility of all) on page 6 of Literacy and English: Experiences and Outcomes.

 

Activity idea
