Understanding the Literacy Requirements of the New GCSEs - Lancashire

secondary boys and teacher

Every GCSE subject will include literacy requirements from next year. To help teacher meet this challenge, our secondary experts have developed a workshop to focus on key areas such as extended writing and SPAG

  • Understand how to analyse the literacy demands of your own subject
  • Examine mark schemes from a range of subjects and have a go at modelling extended writing
  • Transform informal, speech-like writing to a more formal writing style
  • Learn to highlight specific language features and appropriate academic register that enable students to write like subject experts
  • Explore reciprocal reading and the Directed Activities Related to Texts (DARTS) approach

Cost: £175 for the first participant per school and £125 for every colleague you bring. Tickets include a £25 discount on membership of the National Literacy Trust.
