Transcript of Literacy Across the Curriculum

Spot the Errors
also known as the Cardiovascular system your, heart blood vessels and blood itself are three essential components the body needs to suvive, the circulatory system consists of to circuits that blood travels through, pulmonary and systemic. Exercise effects them systems, causeing the heart to pump blood more faster around the Body which in turn allows you to exercise for longer!!!!!!

The three components of cardiovascular system are;
the heart
blood vessels

Its a double circulatory system, it comprises two seperate circuits and blood passes threw the heart twice
Also known as the cardiovascular system, your heart, blood vessels and blood itself are three essential components the body needs to survive. The circulatory system consists of two circuits that blood travels through: pulmonary and systemic. Exercise affects these systems, causing the heart to pump blood faster around the body, which in turn allows you to exercise for longer.

The three components of cardiovascular system are:
the heart
blood vessels

It's a double circulatory system; it comprises two separate circuits and blood passes through the heart twice.
Spot the Corrections
Opening Up Closed Questions
How many poetic devices can you find in the text?
What is the square root of sixty-four?
How many types of wood joint are there?

Discuss with your shoulder partner why you think poets use different devices.
Explain why you favour your preferred method of calculating square roots.
What advice would you give to someone who wants to know how to construct a door frame?
UK: A 'High Literacy' Country
99% of the UK population is literate, according to UNESCO statistics.

However, the UK population in 2011 is 62,262,000. So, even using basic numeracy, 622,620 adults are not literate.
'Literate' is a Very Basic Measure
One in six people in the UK struggle with literacy. This means their literacy is below the level expected of an eleven year old.
The Illiteracy Trap
70% of pupils permanently excluded from school have difficulties in basic literacy skills.

25% of young offenders are said to have reading skills below those of the average seven-year-old.

80% of prisoners have writing skills at or below the level expected of an 11-year-old child; the equivalent figure for reading is 50% (Social Exclusion Unit, 2002:6).
During menurasable season, widgets of the slmenty variety have a tendency to become fluffy, sporking on a regular basis with other widgets in the colony. When the colony has reached swertly proportions, the slmenty widgets will leave, and seek out sporking opportunities with slmenty widgets from other colonies.
It is thought that this behaviour has a durmmal advantage for the fluffy widgets, their kiolade ratio being reduced by the frequent sporking. The kiolade ratio of non-fluffy widgets can reach critical proportions in menurasable season resulting in spontaneous warking, and this is obviously not helpful for the colony, as a warked widget is unable to pilloloy.

1. Which variety of widgets tend to become fluffy?
2. During which season do fluffy widgets occur?
3. What can happen to the Kiolade ratio of non-fluffy widgets?

1. What risks are associated with an overly high kiolade ratio?
The Illiteracy Rat Race
Men and women with poor literacy are the least likely to be in full-time employment at the age of thirty.

Even of those with a job, 63% of men and 75% of women with very low literacy skills have never received a promotion

A 2011 CBI /EDI survey of 566 employers shows 42% are not satisfied with the basic use of English by school and college leavers. 44% of employers invest in remedial training for these employees
Why is literacy important?
Literacy is too important for it
to be left to English teachers.
Simple Things You Can Do: Talk
Encourage more open questioning:

Build in thinking time: up to fourteen seconds?

Encourage more structured, extended talk: exploratory, cumulative, reciprocal and purposeful.

Encourage supportive talk.
Simple Things You Can Do: Writing
Correct errors (you're comfortable with) as you circulate.

Have students talk through their writing first.

Use literacy place-mats.

Have students write in full sentences and paragraphs.

Encourage students to proof-read and 'green pen' mark their work.

Proof-read your own writing.
Things You Can Do: Reading
Thank you.
Literacy is Everyone's Responsibility
Thank you.
New OfStEd framework: increased focus on literacy.
All lessons must demonstrate support of literacy.
Guidance can be found at: http://www.ofsted.gov.uk/resources/reading-and-literacy-faqs
Encourage paired reading 'buddies'.

Have students read around your subject.

Prepare key terminology in advance and have this on the board.

Use a subject-specific word of the day.
