What is your advice about? Literacy across the curriculum

  1. Know your stuff. Understand the basics of literacy: full stops, capital letters, sentencing, punctuation, apostrophes, common homophones, spelling.
  2. Model the basics the best you can. Proof read.
  3. Be relentless in the pupils’ spelling of your own subject specific technical terminology.
  4. Plan extended writing in your lessons whenever possible.
  5. Always correct SPaG errors when marking.
