Product Description

Review

'A must have guide for busy leaders! A great resource which provides at a glance, easy to apply strategies for improving standards of literacy for all learners to engage with.' --Fiona Froment, Principal, Aylesbury Vale Academy

'This book has three unusual dimensions which those working on school improvement often overlook; staff development; student involvement; and enlisting parents. It is worth reading for that alone...' --Sir Tim Brighouse

'Being a literacy coordinator can feel like the loneliest job in the school, and making whole-school literacy have real classroom impact can be hugely frustrating. That's why this book is so welcome: it's positive, practical and hugely uplifting.' -- Geoff Barton, Headteacher, King Edward VI School and author of Don't Call it Literacy

'This toolkit is full of practical, feasible steps that help staff across the curriculum reflect on how literacy is their business. It will be invaluable for anyone attempting to achieve that tricky thing: an effective whole-school approach to raising standards of literacy.' --Julia Strong, former Deputy Director of the National Literacy Trust

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I bought this book having been really impressed with a one day course Graham Tyrer delivered on literacy. This is a really useful book for those who have responsibility for literacy in their school. It is full of practical ideas about how to launch, develop and embed literacy. It includes a useful two year strategic plan as well as methods about how to monitor and evaluate impact. Central to Graham Tyrer's approach is the involvement of students at various levels. Whether they are involved in displaying items from the 'litbox' in a classroom, or taking part in a marking policy consultation as 'litleaders', students are seen a a wonderful resource to help raise standards of literacy across the school. The book is written in a straightforward style and you can dip into whatever takes your interest clearly indicated by different headings. I would wholeheartedly recommend 'The Literacy Leader's Toolkit.'

This is a one-stop shop for all out there who are, perhaps, new to the role of Literacy Co-ordinator in school. Invaluable help and advice throughout.
