The Really Useful Literacy Book : Being Creative with Literacy in the Primary Classroom
The Really Useful Literacy Book provides inventive ideas for the classroom together with an accessible and informative summary of the theories that underpin them. Written for the primary school teacher, student or trainee teacher, this book will act as a springboard for further inspiration. The authors of this book, all highly experienced literacy specialists, show the reader how to plan units of work with flexibility and creativity, whilst retaining the objectives of the National Literacy Strategy. They offer a number of imaginative literacy units, based on exciting ideas that are designed to motivate, engage and challenge children in classrooms.
Using as their base four ''big ideas'': contexts and coherence, motivation, skill building and content and process, the authors lead the reader through a set of principles and practices which when applied to familiar elements of the literacy strategy will encourage the teacher to formulate their own exciting, creative and flexible literacy teaching. Amongst the literacy areas covered are:
* traditional tales
* spoken and written language.
This lively, stimulating book is an essential companion for teachers in foundation, KS 1 & 2, and those on initial teacher training courses who want to develop their practice beyond the National Literacy Strategy.
