Transcript

  • 1. Embedding literacy and numeracy teaching in an elluminate Animal Care classExamples from Jane Craker
  • 2. Using prior knowledge to help listening and reading with understanding.
    Used at the beginning of the elluminate class as students arrive.
  • 3. Before students look at a graph showing the protein content of various foods, students are asked to make predictions in the ‘chat’.
  • 4. The lecturer checks students can read the graph by asking questions and commenting on (and pointing at) some of the things the graph shows
  • 5. Students are asked to read the real pet food labels they have been asked to ‘bring’ to the elluminate class and share what they find.
  • 6. The lecturer also has images of real labels and asks “Where is the protein?”
  • 7. Embedding numeracy- the lecturer has included visuals that help students understand the concepts. She asks students which food appears to have the highest amount of protein- the dry or the wet food? She explains how to calculate the dry matter in each food, and then how to use this information to accurately compare nutrient content.
  • 8. The lecturer explains how to work out the nutrient requirements, using the PPT slide for support.
  • 9. Again, students are asked to read the real pet food labels they have been asked to ‘bring’ to the elluminate class and share what they find.
  • 10. Locating information – where’s the fat?
  • 11. Locating information
  • 12. Reading labels
  • 13. Vocabulary building – understanding key terms
  • 14. Complete or complementary? Looking for the key words in the real label.
  • 15. Critical reading – asking “What does this really mean?”
  • 16. Critical reading- Looking at the explanation. Asking students questions that encourage deeper thinking.
  • 17. Critical reading
  • 18. Critical reading
