Leading Literacy Masterclass

2019-07-03T13:26:46+01:00

Leading on literacy can be a thoroughly thankless task. It can often feel like you’re working incredibly hard to produce resources and strategies which colleagues at best ignore and at worst resent. The problem is often that we’re expending effort in the wrong place and trying to persuade teachers to do the wrong things. Frustratingly, there’s very little guidance about how best to spend your precious and it can be hard to find clear information on what approaches are likely to be most successful.
