On the 28th April BGA held a CPD workshop, Sharing good practice and resources for speaking, listening and improving writing. There are a range of activities and workshops led by the Key to Integration project Consultant, Michael Hawkins.
Part of the event involved a ‘video market’ where each faculty shared the literacy strategies and resources used in lessons.
Feedback was very positive. One teacher said “the resources were useful because the format allows students to formulate their ideas logically in writing and speaking. They will help help to transfer literacy and numeracy from one area to the other”
A visiting teacher said, “They made me think about teaching from a different angle and gave me tools and ideas to use. Also having the opportunity to speak with teachers about successes, challenges and techniques used made it real and relevant”.
