As part of a whole-school improvement plan, this workshop will work well in combination with our other subject-specific modules currently in development, and soon to be integrated into our training programme.

Our Literacy for Humanities workshop has been designed to help teachers meet the literacy demands of the humanities subjects. There is a focus on the role of vocabulary and academic language, and the journey from informal speech to formal writing.
