OVERVIEW STEC – April ‘10 - Literacy Across Learning: K McIntosh & W MacColl
LITERACY ACROSS LEARNING: one approach in UoA’s School of Education STEC – April ‘10 - Literacy Across Learning: K McIntosh & W MacColl
Progression in learning will depend on learners having adequate opportunities to participate in higher-order learning activities and to develop breadth of learning through practice and application across a range of contexts , rather than on rapid movement through levels
Along with the learner, teachers will use their professional judgement and a range of evidence to evaluate progress and discuss with learners the next steps that are most appropriate for them.

Just a few newspaper articles here, but we were maybe looking at a lesson, something like: - Overview of media- what it is. - Reference to and linking up with, science lessons they have covered, explaining that in English, we will be examining whether media glamorise drugs …” (From Student K, 12 th Feb. ’10)
PLANNING LITERACY ACROSS LEARNING: THROUGH SHARED NEEDS AND PURPOSES STEC – April ‘10 - Literacy Across Learning: K McIntosh & W MacColl “ Hi All, I can see it being difficult to base the content of a storyboard purely on the survey results (as we cannot predict the answers). Perhaps we could provide pupils with various 'case studies' similar to the ones we get as TDAs (e.g. Sarah is 14, she drinks 10 units of cider most weekends, her boyfriend is 16 and drinks 15 units of strong lager..). They would then have to storyboard what they think could happen to her physically in the long and short term (with a frame showing her internal organs), socially and psychologically. They would need to draw on their research work in English and Science classes but I cannot quite see how to incorporate Spanish – ( Student P is named here) ? Now where did I leave the chardonnay…” (From Student M, 3 rd March ’10)
PARTNERSHIP PLANNING IN PGDE: PROGRESSION STEC – April ‘10 - Literacy Across Learning: K McIntosh & W MacColl
Shared knowledge and understanding of learning intentions for pupils (as far as possible at the level of the individual pupil) in each relevant lesson across each subject, as opposed to what pupils will do in each subject
A desire to provide breadth and depth to individual pupils’ learning by building on relevant inputs and activities in other subjects.
To share very up-to-date information on individual pupils’ progress through the sequence of lessons (work in progress)
