The Education Endowment Foundation’s guidance, Improving Secondary Literacy, explains that disciplinary literacy is an approach to improving literacy within the curriculum thus emphasising a subject- specific focus. All teachers need to know how to teach students to read, write and communicate effectively in their subjects. School leaders can help this process by ensuring literacy training prioritises subject specificity over general approaches.
Our training is designed to help teachers understand how curriculum subjects communicate knowledge through literacy, and how they can support students to read, write and communicate effectively in their discipline.
This online training involves one 90-minute session
