Using artefacts to support literacy

Artefacts have a valuable role to play in fostering reading skills and enjoyment. This is a practical, hands-on course to identify the value of object-based literacy learning and explore ways to embed object-based literacy teaching across the curriculum.

Anne delivers training on object-based teaching and learning as inset for individual schools and for school library services. It is particularly relevant for school library services with artefact collections. She adapts all her courses to local needs and circumstances.

The course is backed up with comprehensive handouts.

Delegates can expect to gain:

  • more understanding of the role and benefits of artefacts in literacy teaching
  • the context in terms of the national curriculum and Ofsted
  • ideas for using artefacts to support reading skills and enjoyment
  • strategies for developing research skills, comprehension, inference and deduction
  • new ways to deliver literacy across the curriculum
  • methods for enhancing information writing and creative writing
  • greater knowledge of the SLS artefact collections and ideas for using them (where appropriate)

As this course is in the design phase no feedback is yet available.
